For us, permaculture is a special form of organic agriculture with additional and certain key aspects. We try to better understand nature, to recognise and utilise its principles. For this, our focus lies on the promotion of plant and animal diversity, which mutually support each other, and in this way optimise production. For example, in a mixed culture, plants use different rooting levels and pests cannot spread as easily. Planted hedges serve, among other things, as wind protection or as a retreat for numerous beneficial organisms such as birds and insects. Soil protection is a particularly important point for us, and the development of soil fertility, in order to be able to produce healthy products in the long term.
The increase of humus until a certain percentage and a permanent cover with a diversity of plants and living roots are necessary preconditions for a sound soil biology and therefore soil fertility. The result counts.
“Permaculture is the creation of agricultural paradises. That is the natural future for our planet, our children and ourselves!” (Friedrich Lehmann)
We are convinced that permaculture is the way to better and more sustainable agriculture, and with it we want to bring about the following:
• Increase in flora and fauna diversity
• Sustainable protection of the soil and water retention
• Development of soil fertility
• Climate protection through humus as a CO2 store
• Stable yields instead of maximum yields (resilience)
• Intensive flavour of the products
• Independence from the agricultural industry

Goal: To reach optimal humus content depending on soil and climate
