Birkholm’s Bakery was founded by Carl “Cookie” Sr. and Charlotte Birkholm in 1950. Birkholm’s has been family owned, passed from generation to generation for over 60 years. In 1980, Carl Jr. and Elizabeth Birkholm stepped in to carry on the tradition of baking in Solvang. Carl continues to use the original Danish recipes that “Cookie” brought over from Denmark.
In 2011, our son Carl “Thomas” approached us wanting to learn and continue the business like his Grandfather “FarFar” and Father had done before him. Thomas is the 3rd generation of bakers in Solvang and with the Family, he is looking forward to a new beginning.
