In Goodvalley, we are passionate about creating new ways to produce excellent quality food while having the utmost respect for nature. We do things our way. Ourselves. We believe it’s natural to cultivate our own land to grow our own crops. We harvest those crops to make our own feed and raise our own pigs to prepare our own meat. We do it this way to ensure quality all the way.
To us, it’s natural to treat our environment with respect by reusing what we borrow from nature and be a climate friendly producer. We believe this is the right way to farm. It’s the sustainable way. The Goodvalley way.
Listen to Goodvalley Founder Tom Axelgaard explaining the companys philosophy of farming sustainably.
Whatever our role at Goodvalley, each of us is united in our goal to practice and promote self-sufficient and sustainable full-circle production.
In Goodvalley we have our own feedmills where we prepare feed for our pigs. This way we can make sure our feed mix contains all of the natural components which are needed to keep our pigs healthy.
Our processed products are always witout any preservatives. Only by controlling all stages of the production, we can take full responsibility for the quality of our meat.
In Goodvalley we have 36.500 hectares of land. We grow our crops by using degassed manure from our biogas plants. This way we cultivate our soil while taking care of the environment. We have wheat, barley, rape, corn, rye, sunflower and soy.
Our animal welfare standards are certified by GLOBALG.A.P. (Good Agricultural Practice) and we make sure that our pigs have the necessary space, toys available and the right people, who, care for them at every stage.
In our biogas plants we use waste products from all steps of the production. This way we generate heat and energy for our units while we use the degassed minerals as a valuable fertilizer on our fields. This process makes our production less invasive towards the climate.
It is important for us to harvest our fields by ourselves. This way we can control the harvesting proces and by using modern technology and equipment our machines are less invasive and less damaging to the environment.
