If we are to preserve the incomparable beauty of our near-natural landscape, we have to make sure that the people in whose hands its active maintenance lies can earn their livelihood.
Eating regional products helps preserve our landscape, they are fresher and more natural – and you can taste it!
But for the farmer, sustainable farming is not only hard work, but his products, which are of an excellent quality, are facing hard competition with cheap mass-produced products from abroad, so that farming of these sometimes remote areas hardly pays at all. Because we want to continue eating sweet cherries or juicy apples from the orchards of the nature, because we want to have healthy beef, tasty goat cheese and really fresh milk on our tables in the future, we want to support our regional farmers. In addition, buying regional products avoids damage to the environment caused by long-distance transport.
