Next step. We are also on the way to Planet Proof. This is an independent certification that proves you are buying a product that has been produced more sustainably, making it a better choice for nature, climate and animals, with a view to the capacity of our planet.
Step by step, we are trying to reduce the impact and increase the sustainability of the Earth. We do not have this seal of approval yet, but our production methods are increasingly focused on plant health and plant resilience based on the circular approach on our farm. Reuse of raw materials, dead plant material, and cultivation support tools are examples. Our production methods are now much more geared towards organic methods. Artificial fertiliser is used only to correct. Farmyard manure and compost are the basis of our newly planted plots. In the second growth year, we apply a slow-release organic-mineral fertiliser. This helps us achieve continuous growth without growth stagnation or growth spikes. The fertiliser contains 36% organic matter. This makes the soil life twice as active compared to traditional fertilisation. A better balance in the soil reduces disease in the trees. Continuous, even growth, less leaching, better soil life, fewer diseases and infestations are the result.
