Nestled in the rolling green landscapes of Denmark, light airy barns with deep straw bedding provide shelter and warmth to our calves in our cooler climate, where they are fed on natural raw feed including grain.

Naturally, our calves are given everything they need to grow and thrive - and our veal is a testament to the best of Danish nature.

From often locally produced feed to attentive creature comfort, our calves get all their behavioural needs met by passionate farmers who respect both animal and nature in their quest to create higher welfare, excellent tasting, better quality veal.

With Danish Veal we think it’s important that you know where your food originates and how it has been cared for. With Danish Veal, you always know where we’re coming from.
