We are convinced that the majority of Austrian farmers could be organic farmers – even now, some twenty per cent of Austria’s entire area under cultivation is managed organically. And practising this with our own farm in the middle of the Mostviertel in the state of Niederösterreich simply goes with out saying.
We have some forty-five hectares in production, all of it organic. Here, there are rare and regional varieties of pear growing on the fruit meadows, and we cultivate protected varieties of grain such as hull-less oats and winter wheat. We have made a specialty of working with ancient varieties of grain, some of which otherwise long forgotten. The Mostviertel Damson plum, the mirabelle, the Bohnapfel, walnuts and elderberries are growing in back of our foursquare farmstead.
Here, 100% of the grains and fruit from our own cultivation are processed in our distillery.
