A modern agriculture and forestry on historic land
At Trolleholm's estate we conduct modern agriculture and forestry on historic land.
In forest glades and by fields are houses for tenants who want to live in the countryside. And high above the treetops rises the castle.
Trolleholm’s forests consist of about 1500 hectares of deciduous trees and 850 hectares of conifers.
Trolleholm’s own plant cultivation covers about 1,600 hectares of cultivated land.
It is important that the size of wildlife populations is under control, so that the other activities of the estate are not compromised.
Christmas trees & decorations
Over the past 25 years, Trolleholm has built up a large production of fir trees and ornamental greenery.
In 2009, a boiler plant was built to produce heat based on wood chips from the estate’s forest.
Trolleholm’s old school building now houses Trolleholm’s Trollungar, a preschool based on nature education.
Trolleholm through six centuries
The story begins in the 1420s when Cistercian monks at Herrevad Abbey erected buildings in a marshy transitional area called Kattisnabbe.
After the Reformation in the 1530s, the Danish Councillor Tage Ottesen Thott bought the estate and built Eriksholm Castle.
