When you become a parent you don’t just decide on your life. The idea came from itself because, with two young children, my husband and I decided to leave the centre of Zagreb and bought a small property near Varaždin.
The imperative was to produce food that children could eat from their garden at any time without fear of residual chemical protective agents. Through careful market research, we have come to the conclusion that berries, and especially currants, areas poorly represented in our market as quince. Today we grow 185 quince trees and 1,100 currant bushes and vegetables on an area of 4500 m2.
Our intention is to create a fruit processing plant, first in fruit wines and later in high-quality fruit vinegar, valued as a true delicacy worldwide.
We have recognized boutique production as a model that can be served by a family that has control over and production of raw materials, and the process of processing and distribution of finished products.
Within our farm, we cooperate with primary schools and kindergartens, where through practical workshops we show the youngest how to grow food in a sustainable way using biodynamic methods – use biodynamic preparations, work according to the sowing manual, work in the garden and plantations in accordance with natural rhythms, etc..
