Jordberga Gård - Skåne Län - Sweden
Situated in the South of Sweden, just one hour from Copenhagen airport, lies Jordberga farm. The beautiful Baroque inspired castle and its fertile environments create a great place for a guided tour, meeting, wedding or overnight stay.
The estate’s main business is agriculture. During the year you’ll see various crops grow on the farm, like wheat, sugar beet, rapeseed corn and grass-seed. Jordberga Gård's goal is to run a modern and efficient farm, making the most of the possibilities created by its location and fertile land. Thanks to the three windmills and solar panels the farm is self-sufficient in power generation. Next to the farm they have built a biogas installation on the old sugar factory in Lilla Jordberga.
History of Jordberga Gård
Jordberga Gård has been in the family for more than 275 years, with the original castle dating back to 1355. Sadly, it was destroyed by fire in 1644 and then rebuilt by its owner Ivar Krabbe. He built the large stone-barn that is still present on the estate. Carl-Adam von Nolcken, an important agricultural reformer and owner of Jordberga in 1840, redesigned the whole castle as well as the nearby church in Gothic style together with the famous Swedish architect Brunius.
The Baroque-style castle we see today dates from the early 1900’s, when the castle was re-modelled by the Danish architect Glaesel on behalf of Carl-Adam’s daughter Clara. The typical English-styled garden was formed thereafter and is a lovely place to wonder about.
Carl-Adam von Arnold is in charge of running the Jordberga farm and has been living here since 2016. He lives on the estate with his wife Marie and their three young children. Carl-Adam studied agriculture in Uppsala and has previously worked in renewable energy. Marie is the Managing Director of the hotel and event business.
