Nørre Broby, or simply Broby, is a small town in southwest-central Funen, Denmark, to the northeast of Haarby. It was the seat of Broby Municipality between 1970 and 2006 until the municipality was dissolved and merged with Faaborg-Midtfyn Municipality. In January 2014 it had a population of 1444 people. It is home to Nørre Broby Church (kirke),[1] dated to around 1100. It also contains the Broby Library. It has a history of clover production, and farmers in the Nørre Broby area were already cultivating it in 1785.[2]
