ORGANIC FARMING

Glavna slika za - ORGANIC FARMING  Gradišnik farm is an organic (eco) farm. On our farm animals have enough space to move around and enjoy feed which meets their need.

A lot of effort is put into the plants that grow well and healthy.

We keep our soil clean, which in addition with water and manure is necessary to grow healthy food.

On our fields, which lie more on the steep terrain and are relatively small, we produce potatoes and some cereals. 

On the vegetable garden we have a wide choice of vegetables: various kinds of salads, parsley, celery, leeks, onions, garlic, carrots, beets, turnips, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, kale, Brussels sprouts, peas, pumpkins, turnips, beans, ...

Also herbs such as sage, tarragon, thyme, marjoram, lovage, basil, mint, lemon balm, chamomile, marigold, saffron, chives ...

In the hothouse grow tomatoes and peppers.

The forest around us is offering its fruits: blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, wild strawberries and mushrooms.

Quite a lot of chanterelles and umbrella mushrooms, in the autumn also boletus.

The orchard is planted with old varieties of fruit trees.

Mostly apples, followed by pears, cherries and plums, which in our country are called 'češplji', currant and aronia.

Best of all, when the fruits mature they can be eaten directly from a tree (from the tree into the mouth), because they are not sprayed.

Ohhh, how delicious, can you taste it?

Animals on our farm shall ensure that the circle of self-sufficiency on the farm is closed.
