The project

Adopt a quince tree from the farm "Hof Birnstingl-Gottinger" in Hitzendorf (Austria) and receive your harvest in the form of Demeter organic quince juice at home. The Farmer Birgit will take care of your adoption and take its picture. Also, you will be able to download the adoption certificate and, if you wish, plan your visit to the farm. You do not enter into any long-term commitment: once you receive your harvest and you enjoyed the experience, you may decide to renew and extend the adoption.

What do you adopt?

Adopt a quince tree 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 The productive life of a quince tree 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 quince tree dies, we will replace it with no additional cost and assuring the delivery of your harvest from other trees. A quince tree from our farm produces an average of 30 l each season. You do not have to commit to the consumption of the whole harvest. Each season you may decide what quantity to reserve and pay the maintenance in accordance with the amount you reserve. This way you will only pay for what you consume and we can plan and sell the remaining harvest amount to others.

What will you receive?

During harvest season you can progressively receive the quantity of harvest that you reserve on the moment of adoption. You will be able to receive a minimum of 2 boxes, which can be increased up to 5 boxes according to your needs. Shipping format: __6 x Demeter organic quince juice (1l, reusable glass bottle)__ 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.

When will you receive it?

You may select the delivery date of your box as suggested by the Farmer at check-out.

Why should you adopt?
Know who, how and where your food is produced. Source your food in a conscious, direct and consistent manner.
Buying without intermediaries allows the producer to obtain better prices. This helps generate better jobs and social standards in rural areas.
When you adopt something, you allow the producer to ensure the sale at a fixed price and to produce on demand. This also avoids wasting food that is grown without being sold.
It supports producers who strive for environmentally friendly packaging and cultivation practices.
