Our production
Our products are processed according to old family recipes. The fruit and vegetables that we use for our products come from the region. The dairy cows live in a box barn and have the opportunity to go to the pasture directly behind the barn in the Ellscheider and Mahnerter Bachtal nature reserve. A diverse crop rotation of grain, grass, legumes and maize is important to us. We deliver our milk to the Campina Friesland dairy. It is processed there in the “Landliebe Milch” product line. We grow fodder for our animals on our own fields. When it comes to purchased feed, we deliberately avoid using genetically modified feed.
