„We create the best conditions for a colorful variety of flora and fauna.“

My story

You only have to spend a few minutes at our farm at Naturno’s Monte Tramontana in all quietness and you will immediately see that diversity is at home here. My wife has more than 100 different medicinal and aromatic plants to make teas and tinctures. They attract many different insects with their scent: Not only bright butterflies or humming bees feel at ease at the Neuforsthof farm. We sometimes also discover insects that we have never seen before. You suddenly spot them between the lupins and clary sage or in the hedges of different heights that offer a nesting place to different bird species. Birds can find tasty berries in the elder trees, unless they have already had sea buckthorn, barberry or blueberries before.

Our large ginkgo tree seems to grow out of nowhere and protects the great diversity at the farm. It can become up to 1,000 years old and is almost a living fossil.

Our organic apple orchards are all situated around our farm. We do everything to guarantee soil fertility. We make seedings for wonderful flower strips between the rows, alternate mowing to allow insects to slowly move from the mowed row to the next one and accept that the harvest might not be that rich. But biodiversity is worth it for us. We also perceive this wealth in a cocktail of scents when apricots, peaches, magnolias and almonds blossom simultaneously or successively. Diversity attracts diversity. This is the only way to have an almond scent in the apple orchard and an apple scent at the organic farm. We are firmly convinced of that.
