Regenerative Agriculture

Farming in Partnership with Nature
The foundation of human well-being lies in healthy soils and healthy food. The best indicators of ecological regeneration are improved soil quality and increased biodiversity. To achieve this, our farming practice includes groundwater management, reforestation,  enhancement of soil biome, agro-forestry and natural fire protection.
Our vegetable gardens will supply produce for the restaurants, including winter salad vegetables, squashes, pumpkins, corn and rye. The forest gardens and orchards will provide delicious fruits and nuts. The botanical gardens will supply medicinal plants for the apothecary and for a range of soaps and body care products.
