Lystbæk Association

The Lystbæk Association is a support/friendship association that helps maintain traditional crafts.


According to the statutes §2, the aims of the association are:

  • To carry out non-commercial activities of a cultural character based on e.g. courses and lectures, the natural surroundings, including the moors, West Jutland local history, traditions, sheep and wool, "forgotten" crafts, etc.
  • To contribute to maintaining Lystbækgaardas a meeting place, so that the association’s activities can unfold in relation to this.


You can find the Lystbæk Association’s statutes here.


The Lystbæk Association began its activities at Lystbækgaard in 2000. The Lystbæk Association is, together with the owner of Lystbækgaard, BeritKiilerich, behind most of the farm’s courses, events, live workshops, and shepherd dog shows.


One of the Lystbæk Association’s most important tasks is to organise craft markets. Many things need to fall into place and the members of the association put in a huge and important amount of work to prepare and organise the craft markets.

The markets held are the Easter market, Harvest market, and Christmas market.
