Come experience and celebrate when the organic cows come out into the open air for the first time after a long winter spent in the cowshed.
Look forward to Organic Day on April 16. 2023
Organic Day is a festive occasion! An overwhelming number of Danes bring their entire family to the countryside each year on a specific Sunday in April. They help welcome the organic cows out into the open air for the first time after a long winter spent in the cowshed.
The highlight of the day happens at noon when the organic farmer opens the doors to the many playful cows, eager to greet spring and freedom. Amid loud cheering from the many onlookers, the cows run, jump and dance on their way to the green pasture.
Organic Day is much more than the cows celebrating spring; through the years, it has become a day for the Danes to also celebrate spring. It is the biggest national organic event, currently attracting close to 250,000 Danes.
