Gavnø Estate

At Gavnø, we consider it an important part of our work to conduct business in a socially responsible manner. Both agriculture and forestry are run with a focus on sustainable and climate-friendly production of food and energy.


Gavnø has for years used energy-friendly and resource-saving cultivation methods.

We recycle our resources within forest and agriculture, which do not burden the climate, and we take advantage of the fact that our raw materials and energy are locally produced with a minimum of transport. Gavnø has wind turbines that produce CO2-neutral electricity and contribute to our sustainable and renewable energy.

Gavnø has a craft team that restores the estate’s listed buildings and the castle, thus ensuring that the cultural heritage is preserved.
