In the rolling foothills and rugged tops of the Carpathian mountains, our natural forests of mixed-species mesmerise its visitors, while our fertile farmland beyond the mountains continuously delivers on its promise of a rich harvest.
You can find our three farms a one-hour drive east of Timisoara, the third-largest city in Romania. And our three forests is a one-hour drive north-west of Bucharest.
We produce cereal and oilseed crops, including barley, canola, corn, sorghum, soy, wheat, beans, peas and lucerne. We also produce grass- and clover seeds and blueberries.
For land that isn’t suitable for crop production, we have chosen to integrate Aberdeen Angus. The cattle helps us diversify our operation and build organic matter in the soil.
Our forest management follows a long and proud tradition of sustainable forest management and is home to some of the most extensive mixed-species forests in Europe. This means that we have more than 19 different timber species in our Romanian forests, from softwood such as spruce, lime and fir, to hardwood species such as oak, beech, maple, hornbeam, cherry and ash.
Naturally delicious blueberries from Romania
On our farms in Romania, we grow 8 varieties, chosen to suit the Romanian climate and soils. Paired with excellent farming principles, we consistently produce large and tasty berries of high quality.
Amongst grey wolfs and wild cats
To manage parts of the largest expanses of mixed species forests in Europe is humbling. So, it goes without saying that we do not use intensive harvesting and never make clear cuts. Instead, we use cover forestry systems so the woods can regenerate as nature intended. We only remove the mature trees in a stand once it is fully populated with new young trees, a process that takes about 30 years.
