Orchard meadows


Preserving valuable biotope through economic use

Orchard meadows are an important part of our cultivated landscape and have developed into a habitat that offers a niche for the survival of a large number of animals due to its ecological structures. Unfortunately, the traditional management of the fruit orchards remains a somewhat profitable business, as the production of must and juice makes only low profits possible. Many orchards must therefore be abandoned by their owners. Today, natural and carefully dried meadow fruit is once again a sought-after food - a traditional pleasure for in between, for hikers or during the winter season. Dried in a modern dryer under hygienic conditions and energy-saving, specialities such as apple rings, pear slices and prunes appeal to new customers in markets, farm shops or delicatessen shops and thus enable the economic use of fruit from the fields.

Agriculture must pay off again

The drying systems developed in close cooperation with the University of Hohenheim are specially sized for agricultural use, are easy to operate and dry the fruits laid out on the trays evenly and particularly gently. In this way, vitamins are largely preserved and make dried fruit a valuable foodstuff. The special quality of the dried fruit produced permits profitable marketing and thus a high level of profitability of the plant. Nature and culture shake hands in our orchards. For decades, they have shaped our landscape and provide a variety of natural pleasures and much more with tasty apples, pears and plums. Orchard meadows are not only wonderful adventure landscapes, but also home to the Little Owl, Redstart, Hedgehog and Weasel, making them one of the most valuable habitats in our cultural landscape. However, ecology alone is of little use if the economy is not right. That is why orchards must remain profitable for their owners.
