Adopt a cow of our flock "Bauer Freigeist" in Gardelegen (Tyskland) and receive your harvest in the form of Demeter organic cow cheese at home. The Farmer Linda 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. As the production coming from one cow is big, the adoption is shared among various people. If you wish to have a bigger share, you may adopt more than once.
You adopt a cow from our farm in Gardelegen (Tyskland). The livestock farming and the produce have both been certified as organic by the European Union since 2016, and as Demeter since 2021. A dairy cow (Holstein, Jersey, Fleckvieh and crosses of these three breeds) can be adopted. Each cow produces an average of 8000 liters of milk each season. With this amount we can produce around 800kg of Demeter organic cow cheese. Each cow is adopted by 100 CrowdFarmers who receive a box with 1.2 kg of Demeter organic cow cheese. Our herd counts about 300 dairy cows of different breeds: Holstein, Jersey, Fleckvieh and crossbreeds run on our pastures, and 8 cows are already part of this CrowdFarming project. The organic orientation of arable farming and dairy farming is a central part of our philosophy and our milk has been certified with the EU Organic Seal since 2017. We want to build a bridge between ecology and economy. We actively face the challenges of a future-oriented, sustainable agriculture with an ecological character. We are dairy farmers with all our heart and, since 2019, organic cheesemakers by conviction. All our products are traditionally manufactured and reflect the art of cheesemaking. Each cheese is unique and passes through our hands several times. All our products are made from our own organic milk. Only selected organic herbs are used. Our small farm dairy 'Bauer Freigeist' is part of the family business. You can download the corresponding certificate in the section of seals below.
The box we will send you contains: 2 x __handmade Demeter organic Camembert__, pasteurised milk (approx. 200g, in parchment paper): a natural, handmade soft cheese with a slightly spicy note, 14-18 ripening days. It has been turned and turned for 7 days with care and fondness before maturing for another week so that it is evenly covered with mould under perfect conditions. It can be stored for several weeks. If you have an appropriate cool & dry place, the cheese can even be stored outside the fridge (always separate from other cheeses) and should anyways not be consumed cold, as it develops its best aroma at room temperature. 1 x __Demeter organic “Hausmarke”__, pasteurised milk (approx. 800g in total, in wax paper or in biodegradable film): our house brand, 2 or 3 pieces of semi-hard cheese rubbed with red cheese culture, with organic herbs, seeds&nuts and spices, spicy and creamy in taste, at least 40 ripening days. We have developed our own brand according to our taste: salt content, degree of ripeness, rind and red culture are synchronized in our recipe. Every day during the minimum 40-day ripening period, the cheese loaf is turned and rubbed with red cheese culture. Natural rind without wax, everything can be eaten. Separated from the camembert it is best stored in an airtight container and in the fridge for several weeks. You may also freeze it in smaller portions. No plastic packaging: We do not use plastic for our packaging: The cheese is wrapped in parchment paper, like your sandwich used to be, and the label is made of stone paper. Our innovative insulating box from Landpack is made of straw and can even be composted or upcycled. The cheese consists only of our pasteurised organic milk, original animal rennet, cheese culture, salt and the red smear rind. You will receive your harvest personalized with the name you chose in the adoption process.
