The farm

The Danish climate, with its cool summers and mild winters, is ideal for fur animals. Replete with the resources for providing the best fresh, nutritious feed due to the availability of the ingredients such as fish. Denmark also has a longstanding tradition of animal husbandry. As a result, some fur farmers have additional types of agriculture, including other animals and crops.

In order to breed the healthiest animals in the most appropriate way, Kopenhagen Fur has made substantial investments to continually optimise the environmental conditions on fur farms We have worked in tandem with the Danish Animal Welfare Society (Dyrenes Beskyttelse) to establish the most suitable way for raising mink. In fact, the two organisations jointly recommended a set of rules for the proper farming of mink, which they submitted to the Ministry of Justice. These rules were adopted in January 2007.  

Additionally, Danish fur farmers use the latest IT advancements regarding management, control, breeding and analysis. These tools also give the farmer the best possible overview of the genetic progress of the herd, which ultimately contributes to a higher quality fur.
