Free Organic Home Grown Vegetables On Bornholm
Our guests get to pick their own fruit and veg straight from the field.
Last year here at our farm, Vestervang (holidaysonbornholm.com), we grew our own organic fruit and vegetables and offered these to our guests in a “pick your own” way.
Some guests had breakfast under one of the cherry trees, picking fresh ripe cherries and adding them to some yogurt . How nice is that!
For many of the children that stayed with us it was the first time they had been in a vegetable garden and a few got addicted to our fresh peas (these were kids that didn’t like “normal” peas).
In the late afternoon there’s simply nothing better than cropping some fresh veg and eating it just minutes later. It just tastes so much better than shop bought produce.
Anyway, this “pick your own” went down a storm with our guests so this year we decided to expand the vegetable patch in order to grow more and to grow a wider variety of plants.
As you can see from the photo the new patch is well under way and things are sprouting up all over the place.
We are growing potatoes, onions, leeks, garlic, carrots (various varieties), beetroot, tomatoes (various varieties), beans, peas, squash, melons, salad leaves (assorted), rocket, sprouts and more.
There are many fresh herbs too and a few types of mint for tea making.
We also have 2 cherry trees, apple trees, a pear tree, black currents, red currents, gooseberries, and blue berries.
And to top it all off we have a ton of strawberry plants that are already on their way to producing a bumper crop.
So if you are thinking about visiting Bornholm, looking for somewhere to stay and like fresh healthy food bear us in mind.
