Bregentved Manor – Crop production, pig production and energy.

Bregentved Manor has a clear strategy. The business must be managed in a sustainable way with a special focus on climate. They have therefore over the past years developed wind, biomass and solar energy. The overarching goal is to become energy-neutral.
The plan is to establish a huge solar energy park on 210 hectares. The first 10 hectares already supply power.

The manor farms 3,465 hectares with a wide range of crops, and produces pigs and energy.
