Seed Exchange is a two days festival at the Farm of Ideas in Lejre on 19-20th August, celebrating the meeting between gastronomy and agriculture.

Admission is free and open for everyone. Family friendly.

Christian F. Puglisi and his team are very proud and happy to welcome an impressive lineup of high profiled local and international names that will come and exchange seeds, share their practice, cook and join the party:

 ★ Sean Brock, Husk (US) ★ Matt Orlando, Amass (DK) ★ Esben Holmboe Bang, Maaemo (Norway) ★ Jock Zonfrillo, Orana (Australia) ★ Carlo Petrini, Slow Food (Italy) ★ Claus Meyer, Agern (DK) ★ Camilla Plum, Fuglebjerggaard (DK) ★ Frank Erichsen, Bonderøven (DK) ★ + many more!

For this celebration, Puglisi brings people and seeds together from near and afar. There will be a real exchange of seeds, but also in transferred sense. It's an opportunity for inspiration for new sustainable practices in the meeting of local farmers, producers, seed collectors and international star chefs and enthusiasts. All of it taking place in a casual and festive atmosphere at the farm.

The heart of the festival is the actual Seed Swap cabin where you can go and exchange seeds. In the Workshop Tent there will be practical Workshops for free. At the open Lake Stage there will both days be inspiring debates on the farm-to-table approach and sustainable practices in the meeting between farmers and chefs. Around at the festival site, you'll find plenty of food stalls selling organic food and drinks and last but not least there will be a lively Marketplace where local organic producers are selling their produce. There will be guided Farm Walks through the day and also fun kids Play Areas. Check out the detailed daily program here:


In addition to the free program, there will be special dining events where space is limited and you have to purchase a ticket in advance: Practical workshops, BÆST Farm pop-up banquets, an outstanding gastronomic Harvest Picnic out amidst the fields and the weekend will be concluded with the long table dinner The First Supper cooked by international top chefs in the Hay Barn. 


Marketplace with local producers

There will be a lively marketplace where a wide range of local producers come and sell their outstanding organic produce and tell the story behind. Come explore everything from flowerseeds and plants to fresh eggs and handmade chocolate!.
