What do you adopt?
Adopt {publicVariety} that we cultivate based on the Organic Farming and Demeter regulations of the European Union. During the process of adoption you can choose a name that we will engrave on a plaque and hang on your tree. Varieties: Mammut, Cydora Robusta, Vranja, Leskovac Each {variety} produces an average of {masterUnitsMax}l of {production} per season. The productive life of {publicVariety} is around 30-40 years. For as long as you want to keep it and we can continue taking care of it, you can renew your adoption year after year. If your {variety} dies, we will replace it with no additional cost and assuring the delivery of your harvest from other trees.
What will you receive?
Each season, when have harvested the quinces and have produced the {production], we will send you a box with: __6 x Demeter quince juice (1l reusable glass bottles)__ The juice is a selection from our orchards and each variety (Mammut, Cydora Robusta, Vranja, Leskovac) is picked and pressed at the ideal ripening point. The mixture of the varieties results in a refreshing, slightly tart and aromatic juice. We recommend it especially as a spritzer with mineral water, white wine and a dash of lime - a wonderful treat! The juices are bottled in reusable glass bottles and should not be stored above +30 °C or below 0 °C. Instead the apple juice should be stored in a cool place. Unopened, it can be kept for up to one year. Once the juice is opened, it is best to drink it within a few days.

My husband Stefan and I run our family business together with a lot of passion, fascination for nature and curiosity for new things. Stefan has already learned how to handle fruit trees on his parents' orchard in the southeast of Austria: How to plant trees, where each variety thrives best and what it takes to grow a tree and harvest tasty fruit. Working with nature and observing it in the different seasons fascinated and motivated me from an early age. I never met my great-grandfather, but what I heard and saw shaped me: his way of designing gardens meant wisdom and beauty to me. I remember my childhood and old big trees, some with two to three pear varieties and a variety of fruits that I can't find anywhere today. Inspired by this, I completed a degree in natural sciences, came to renewable energies and founded a company for sustainable development. Nevertheless, my husband Stefan and I still dedicate ourselves intensively to agriculture and since 2014 we have planted new apple-, quince-, and vineyards, which we not only design agronomically, but also aesthetically and cultivate biologically dynamically in the family business. A healthy soil is the basis for a healthy food to thrive on. A good indicator of food quality is the variety of microorganisms that can be found in and on it. We therefore cooperate closely with research projects that look at new approaches in agriculture. It has recently been discovered that our apples contain a completely different spectrum of microorganisms than conventional apples .

"I never knew my great-grandfather, but what I heard and saw shaped me: his way of designing gardens meant wisdom and beauty to me. Our orchards should appeal to all the senses, which is why we plant flowers, many roses and lavender between the trees and the vines. From an orchard we want to create an oasis of peace."

Our farm Birnstingl Gottinger in the "West Styrian hill country" has already 500 years of history and that can be seen in the ancient sacred figures and the statue of the turkish siege that reminds us of past time. When my family took over the farm about 300 years ago, our family tradition of viticulture and then fruit cultivation began. My great-grandfather Fritz was a botanist, very eager to experiment and plan orchards and an English garden, and we offered our fruit in a refined form in our Buschenschenke, a typical Styrian inn. Since 2003 we have been cultivating our land organically and in 2014 we decided to devote ourselves more intensively to fruit cultivation and planted new trees among the trees, some of which are 70 years old. Since then we have been working biodynamically (Demeter). Small trees stand between large fruit trees, roses and herbs mix in between and bring beauty and variety to our plantations. A lovely fragrance fills our gardens from spring till autumn. Our home, the " West Styrian hill country ", is characterised by a very varied landscape. The resulting very small-scale and diverse agriculture is often associated with a lot of manual work, so much more elaborate than on flat land. Our climate is ideal for cultivating fruit and wine: warm summers and cool autumn nights produce a beautiful red colour and a crisp, fresh aroma of apple and quince and, as a result, a harmonious sugar-acidity ratio in our juices. Only the fully ripened fruits of each variety are picked by hand in two to three harvesting steps and immediately processed into juice in a nearby fruit press to preserve taste and aroma as perfectly as possible. Until the harvest is complete, the juice is stored in a tank and then filled into the CrowdFarming bottles with personalised labels and sent to you. We look forward to welcoming you CrowdFarmers!
