Nature

The estate stretches over 3 hectares of land and 2.8 hectares of timber. It is surrounded by natural meadows, groves and forests.

A vegetable garden and an organic orchard and Permaculture are used for food production and educational activities. Permaculture is an ethical design approach designed to build sustainable human habitats by mimicking the workings of nature.

In addition to a small dog, a cat and a rabbit, we also have 2 “company” ewes that are used to mow the grass and make children aware of the relationship to nature.

In order to promote biodiversity, we have installed nesting boxes, insect hotels and flower areas for bees.
