SOFI Farm Shop

Pamper yourself with a trip to the countryside at this farm shop in a small village between Horsens and Skanderborg. At SOFI’s the shelves are full of applied art from all around the world. We guarantee that you can find new ornaments, gifts, and tempting specialities here.

Where old meets new

There are very few places where you can find such an authentic Danish rural atmosphere as at SOFI Farm Shop. SOFI, and its owner Helle Tholstrup, are located in peaceful surroundings in the village Dørup on the southside of Jutland’s biggest lake, Mossø. Dørup is on the countryside in beautiful nature, but still only a short drive away from Horsens, Skanderborg and Silkeborg.

The store is decorated with old wooden tables, closets, and bookshelves, classic kitchen utensils, and an old-fashioned coffee-grinder that all helps create the unique atmosphere from times past.

On the other hand, there are many modern ornaments, and arts and crafts for sale in the shop that are in sharp contrast to the old things. You can find modern glasses, cups, bowls, clothing, candles, jewelry, tablecloths, and a variety of ornaments. All products are carefully selected from manufacturers all over the world.


Tasty delicacies

In addition to the interesting arts and crafts, SOFI also offers a tempting selection of high-quality specialties. SOFI brews her own coffee of exclusive coffee beans on the store’s old grinder. You can also enjoy the coffee in the store’s own little café.

It is also possible to purchase delicious chocolate, spices, syrup, craft beer, wine, lobster soup, and much more.

The staff are happy to put together a gift basket based on your wishes with specialties, and other products from the shop. Feel free to contact Helle Tholstrup and order one or more gift baskets, and they will be ready when you arrive. There is also a selection of pre-made gift baskets available in the shop.
