Apart from complying with minimum organic standards according to the EU Council Regulation (EC) No. 834/2007 for organic farming we are constantly seeking to improve our farming methods as to minimize their negative impact on the environment. We know the soil we work and its needs. By developing and implementing farming practices such as mulching and composting we improve soil fertility. We have also found a method how to use the plant residue which remains after distillation as a natural fertiliser for our crops.
By searching for ways to avoid artificial fertilizers and pest control chemicals, reducing tillage to a minimum, and planting genetically diverse crops we are putting a major effort in preserving biodiversity on and around all our fields. We also put in place ecosystem services through bees pollination and provision of habitats for birds and beneficial insects.
