After the long, cold and dark winter all organic cows in Denmark get to be out of their cowsheds for the very first time in months. Approximately 80 organic farms in the country join together for this national event so that everyone can assist and witness the spectacle given by the cheerful cows that run around as they see the green pasture once again.
This national event happens this year on the 15th of April from 10:00am to 2:00pm in selected farms along the entire territory. As stated in the official site of the Økodag (Organic Day) this occasion “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”. And it is indeed a remarkable day in this country, considering the high relevance organic produce has in the daily life of the residents of this country.
The Økodag aims at all visitors to have a memorable experience as they learn and have a great day together. The activities planned for this day are targeted at expanding the knowledge regarding organic farming, the products, its benefits and much more.
