We wish to further develop sustainable food production for a better tomorrow.
Goodvalley began in 1980 when Danish farmer Tom Axelgaard questioned the logic of farming procedures at that time and their negative impact on the environment. He believed there had to be a way to produce high quality food and maintain a healthy natural environment.
From that idea, Goodvalley grew, focusing on a unique and sustainable approach to farming that had minimal environmental impact. The Goodvalley way is now synonymous with the belief in ensuring quality and environmental care from field to fork, and an opportunity to meet the demands of a growing global population sustainably.
Goodvalley began in 1994 with one man’s belief that there had to be a way to successfully farm with less impact on the environment.
We do this by:
From farming sustainably, to ensuring safe products and minimal impact on the environment, quality is at the heart of everything we do.
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.
