WelcomeWe are working to finish our english site and webshop and in the meantime you may read about us, the sea buckthorn berries and be inspired on this page.
HØSTET means HARVESTED and everything at HØSTET spins around sea buckthorn and about knowing as much as possible about these berries and to exploit their full potential. We grow, harvest and process our own organic sea buckthorn on our farm at Bornholm, overlooking the Baltic sea.
We would like to take you all the way into the universe of sea buckthorn and all the possibilities these berries offers. At HØSTET it's all about the good taste and the use of high quality raw materials and then it's important for us, to use up as many parts of the plant as possible. Our plantation is organic and we have started to study the possibilities that comes with Biodynamic agriculture.
We sell our berries, 100% juice and dried flakes to restaurants and other producers, please contact Mads: +45-53542124 / firstname.lastname@example.org
Visit us:Our farmshop and plantation are open on weekdays between 3 and 5 pm. and if you see the big flag by our road-sign during a weekend, it also means that we are open. Out side these hours, we are busy in the kitchen or the plantation, but we receive bigger groups for tours and tastings when they are booked in advance.
Most of our products are produces by hand in our own kitchen on the farm. But we also have interesting coorporations with other producers, who have developed beer, aquavit and soap, using our berries.
Sea buckthorn marmelade:Our first product was the marmelade, it's cooked without the skin and seeds and has fine balance, between the sour and the sweetness. Only 3 weeks after we started cooking it, we won the productprice at 'Sol over Gudhjems - cookingcompetition'. We use the marmelade with cheese and bread, but also for desserts.
Dried sea buckthorn flakes:
The skin of the sea buckthorn has a beautifull colour and a fine acidity, we dry them at 40 degrees to preserve the colour, taste and as many of the vitamins and antioxidants as possible. Use them to sprinkle on breakfast, salads, desserts or be creative and use them in your own way.
