VEJRØ TODAY

In 2005, founder and co-owner of Saxo Bank Kim Fornais bought Vejrø. With an expansive vision and guiding belief in creating a sustainable, ecologically and self-sufficient community, he initiated a long-term reconstruction of the island. 

Sustainability

Our vision of sustainability permeates all levels of our community, ranging from the implementation of sustainable energy, animal husbandry, and growing practices to a sustainable economy.

Organic

Based in organic production principles, we give our animals time and space to live and grow naturally. Also, we fully embrace our concept of 'From field to mouth'.

Self-sufficient

Living in harmony with nature, our driving ambition is to be self-sufficient, by using the resources that are present on the island.

 

"With our legs firmly planted in Vejrø's rich, generous soil, we pull together and reach for the sky."

HISTORY

The history of Vejrø goes all the way back to the stone age.  There have been both kings and pirates on our island. 

In the 13th century, history records the first known owner of Vejrø as King Valdemar the Second. Around the 14th century the island was populated by pirates.  Farming and community life on the island began in the year 1568.

During the 1920s, the island reached its peak-population, approximately 80 people, most of which were farmers. At this time, Vejrø was divided into several small farms, and also boasted a farm shop and a school.

1960's and 70's saw Vejrø slowly depopulated and finally left almost completely desolated.  It remained vacated and wild until 2005 when it came into private ownership.
