Where the good things come from
The Grüner Kreis operates five farms as part of its institutions in the Bucklige Welt, which are primarily dedicated to livestock breeding and forestry. Cattle, pigs, goats, poultry, horses, lamas and all kinds of small animals inhabit some 80 ha of agricultural and forestry areas.
Breeding of rare farm animals such as the "Porc Noir Gascon", a very old breed of pig from France, which not long ago faced extinction, and breeding the French Aubrac cattle is a matter of special pride. The animals are kept in the open all year round, lovingly cared for by the institution’s clients under specialist guidance and fed only on lush grass and cereals from our own farms.
