The island of Barsø is situated across from Genner Fjord, about 11 km north-east of Aabenraa. The island has only 16 inhabitants. Søren Svennesen, the island’s only farmer, is one of them. Søren’s entire production process is organically certified. In fact, Barsø was the first island in the “Association of Small Danish Islands” to be certified 100% organic.
Søren has a large herd of free-range dairy cows that we are very fond of at Syttende. Because the herd includes the cows Mathilde and Søjde who supply our kitchen with raw milk every week. Thanks to these two beauties, and Søren of course, we probably make the best milk-based ice cream in the Kingdom of Denmark at Syttende.
