Milking the blue cow

10 / 05 / 24 | Featured, Fun facts, Welcome

‘Milking the blue cow’ is an old saying here in the most westly of Denmark: In the 1800’s the dune farmers led harsh lives. The barren soil by the coastal line of The Northern Sea made it hard to survive. But the coastline was also treacherous water and back then shipwrecking was not uncommon.


Goods from shipwreck belonged to the crown, so the dune farmers had to sneak down on the beach in the dark of the night to salvage anything they could before the King’s shore officer arrived to compound it. They went to ‘milk the blue cow’. A salvage could mean the difference between survival or not. There are even stories about dune farmers, who lured ships too near the coast by walking up and down the dunes by nighttime with lanterns in hands, simulating a ship moving over waters.

We totally depend on qualified labor from all over the world to land on our coast. We depend on you coming here and if you are reading this, we have most probably already lured you to land here on our windy shores!
