In the western part of Jutland we have the best products right at hand; what we breed in the stables, grow in the fields as well as nature's own herbs, fish and game. The products can be enjoyed raw and unrefined or processed and refined with technical subtlety.
Several of our small-scale producers are experiencing an exciting development at present. Until now, it has primarily been gourmet restaurants, near and far, that have been interested in what we produce, but the products from Western Jutland are now finding their way to quality- and taste conscious consumers, either through farm shops, the Internet or retailers.
Our strength is quality fish and shell fish from the North Sea and fjords. World famous Stauning Whisky and a variety of meat products from free range pigs, beef cattle, lamb and poultry – all bred in Western Jutland’s wonderful nature. Flour, hemp, fruit and vegetables, as well as beer from micro breweries, juices and herbal liqueurs. We even have a 100% Danish produced fish sauce.
Farming, forestry, fishing, industry and craftsmanship in a variety of trades make up the backbone of the area's economy. The food industry, including the industrialized production in high-tech dairies, slaughter houses and fish factories, as well as small-scale producers, is an important part of the area’s business sector.
Agriculture dominates both view and vision in our region, which is beautifully framed with the impressive hilly, glacial landscape and characterized by moors, fjords and coastal scenery along the North Sea. Part of our area is currently awaiting certification as a Global Geopark.
