The goal of the “Ilzenbergas” Farm – to become a model of the community-supported biodynamic farm throughout Europe.
The priority of the “Ilzenbergas” Farm – to produce healthy, natural, lovingly grown food both to be consumed by the farm itself and supplied directly to a client.
The “Ilzenbergas” Farm, is a centuries-long aura, the farm operating within the manor, celebrating its 500th anniversary in 2015. This is not just a beautiful place – the manor is unique for the peace and good vibe settled here over the centuries; it is perfect to work and live, to grow and prosper. The farm is only one of the farm-within-manor kind not only in Lithuania, but also in all the Baltic countries.
On the basis of a closed natural circuit – soil, plant, animal, and human – of consistent work, without the use of any chemicals, the Agricultural Company “Ilzenbergas” will offer the widest range of food products:
- Varieties of natural-yeast bread baked solely of grain that has been biodynamically grown in our farm
- Poultry: hens, geese, and, of course, their eggs.
- Cattle meat from organic pasture lands: lamb, beef. Soon – game meat as well.
- Milk. As well as: butter, cheese, and curd.
- Carp and trout cultured and nursed in the pond fed by spring wells.
- Apples, pears, plums, cherries, currants, raspberries picked in the centuries-old garden that has recently been replanted.
- Early-spring vegetables from our greenhouses and kitchen gardens: varieties of lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, beets, carrots, cabbage, zucchini, pumpkin, eggplant, peas, onions, garlic, other culinary herbs, and strawberries.
- Bee honey from our maximally green meadows.
- In addition, a wide range of dried, pickled, and smoked products.
Foods grown in such a farm will be primarily different by the absence of artificial fertilizers, pesticides, or other additives: in fertilization using manure, mulch, natural rot, and silage. Secondly, the products differ in their composition: they will contain no preservatives, artificial colours, flavour enhancers, substitutes, or any other additives used for food sold in retails chains. Third, this food is energetic, man-produced with love and devotion.
