Wedellsborg's and Frijsenborg's historical buildings form the framework of our values in terms of company culture, nature, and agriculture.

These are values which are constantly being given greater weight in our daily lives.

We have built our company upon a circular economy which branches into all aspects of our job. To us, incorporating the environment in our work is a special virtue.

Among great and beautiful forest areas, you find our agriculture.

The production consists mainly of crops, grains, seeds, and rapeseed. And at Frijsenborg, we produce happy chickens in cooperation with De 5 Gaarde.

The history of Frijsenborg and Wedellsborg

Explore our history

Our interest in hunting, forestry, and agriculture has its roots back to the beginning of Wedellsborg and Frijsenborg.

Counts of the past built the industry we see here today, which actually made the manor houses the largest workplaces of the rural areas.
