Søren Vestergaard Kristensen
Søren grew up on his parents’ pig farm near Kjellerup in Jutland, Denmark. Every year he helped collect rocks on the 400 hectare fields.
Already as a fifteen year old he wanted to find better ways of collecting rocks, than simply walking beside a tractor and picking them up by hand. Therefore, he started building the first prototypes.
The first few prototypes had to be discarded: “As a 15 year old I did not have the skills to build a proper machine that would work as desired, but it still believed in my idea” says Søren.
After finishing primary school Søren apprenticed as a blacksmith during his 5-year long EUX education, which is a mix between technical school and practical learning. The machine got perfected during these years, as Søren used his idea in every possible school project. He also used a lot of his spare time on drawing and building new prototypes of the ATV stone collector.
The sales of the machines started in the spring 2019, and have since rocketed. Today, Søren is working full-time on selling the machines.
