De 5 Gaarde is a concept and production collaboration between the 5 estates and farms Constantinsborg, Frijsenborg, Gyllingnæs, Schackenborg and Wedellsborg. De 5 Gaarde derives from a wish from the owners to process the good raw materials from the farms to high quality products at a fair price to Danish consumers. The first products were sold in 2005.
Production mainly focuses on plant breeding – including cereals, rapeseeds, seeds – chicken breeding at Frijsenborg farms and milk production at Gyllingnæs.
To ensure the high quality, all the farms are GLOBALG.A.P. certified – a seal of quality for worldwide good farming. Products from De 5 Gaarde are honest products with an earth to table concept.
