Biodiversity

We support projects to protect insects and healthy soil.

We have given our backing to the "Wild and Cultivated" project to conserve flowering meadows, and we keep two bee colonies on our premises, which we look after ourselves. We have also developed a regional flowering mix to enrich grassland environments in cooperation with the UNESCO Berchtesgadener Land Biosphere Reserve.

Animal health

The good health and well-being of cattle is crucial for our dairy products.

We regularly provide courses for all farmers. These offer tips on animal care, alternative medicine, exercise and feed. Since 2017, we have paid a free range bonus for each kilogram of milk.
