Mads Helms family is the 4th generation of milk producers in the historical and beautiful place in Denmark known as Sommerbjerg. Edvard Helms, who was his great grandfather was the first to farm the moorland surrounding Denmark ́s biggest forests. Many stories can be told from more than a century of lives devoted to milk farming. Some may be forgotten while some will live on with future generations continuing the dream from 1884 of being a trusted supplier of high quality Danish milk. Sommerbjerg is also an original founder of Them cooperative dairy, which is also know as the Dairy of 1888, and Sommerbjerg enjoys the respect of being a well known brand in its own right Sommerbjerg®
‘As a pregnant mother I cared much about everything that would go into me and my baby. Joy and worry coexist when you are expecting your child. Your really want to give yourself and the new life the safest and purest nutrition. Out of the respect to life, I choose organic products and to be an organic mom. This also to share my values on the importance of animal welfare and sustainable production for respecting every life on Earth.
My name is Ingeborg and I am the mother of 3 strong sons being the 4th generation of Sommerbjerg organic farm in Denmark’.
Organic cows in Denmark must have access to free pasture from April 15th to November 1st. Even in the wintertime, the cows must go to open-air areas for exercise. Besides, the feed for cows must be 100% organic, and a major part of the feed must be rough-age coming from the farm´s own pasture.
When the cow gives birth to the calf, the baby calf must be given the opportunity to satisfy its suckling need during the lactation period of 3 months.
If an organic cow is treated with veterinary medicine, the withdrawal period at our dairy is twice of non-organic milking cows.
The cows are carefully milked on our own farms and thoroughly tested on a zero-tolerance basis for antibiotics and thermo bacteria on farm level on every single milk collection. By any trace of antibiotics all the milk is rejected and send to waste.
The milk is transported in our own controlled milk tankers directly to our dairy. We are the only dairy in Denmark performing systematic testing for thermo bacteria on our tankers delivering the fresh milk to the Dairy.
The milk is freshly pasteurized using the newest and best technology to ensure a natural, rich and fresh organic taste. When spray drying our milk is gently processed and monitored all the way to keep taste and nutrients.
All our milk is immediately packed and delivered. We do not keep stock but produce in small series so we ensure only fresh milk is delivered to you. All products must pass the full test before release.
Denmark is the ideal country for dairy production with a climate and soil that provides optimum conditions for dairy farming. We are dedicated to keep it that way and Denmark is a world acknowledged frontrunner in environmental protection.
