The ecological footprint is something almost everybody knows. Especially on long car drives or flights the feeling, that this ecological footprint is growing with every kilometre, is very strong. And quite rightly: a flight form Zurich to Cyprus for example produces one tonne of CO2. But even though this is bad, nobody wants to miss a vacation and most destination can only be reached by airplane or a long car drive. The pleasure of traveling without the hassle of pollution But there is a way to fight the guilty conscience against the environment: compensation payment. When you hear it for the first time, it might sound a little bit weird to you but actually it really does make sense. The way it works is really simple and logic: Users can calculate each flight or car drive with the correct distance and effect on the environment on a website. Then they can see what it costs to compensate for their emissions and have the chance to choose from different projects to support climate protection with their payments. Where to compensate? There is a variety of different companies, who offer compensations payment. One of them is called myclimate. The Swiss Non-Profit Organisation […]
Here comes the third regional supplier in our portrait-line: Biohof Fink, Grafendorf in the "Steiermark" Since 1975 the Biohof Fink is focussing on biological agriculture. The belief of the family-run farm in the region "Steiermark", to work in a completely organic way was already strong back then, when "biological agriculture" wasn't in the mindsets of other farmers in the region yet. The big vision behind is the production of natural food, which saves the ground, the water and the environment. Because the motto at Biohof Fink is: Healthy ground, healthy plants, healthy food, healthy people :) As a pioneer in biological agriculture the Biohof Fink doesn't only sell it's freshly harvested fruits and vegetables to wholesalers, markets, market driver and large kitchens, but you can also get seasonal fruits/ vegetables every 7 or 14 days for your private household in the Bio Power Box, which will be delivered directly to your home. Of course there are different sizes of the Bio Power Box available and it can be matched to the costumers' preferences. A particular specialty of the Biohof Fink are the self produced, crispy and unbelievably tasty apple chips. The fresh apples of the farm are dryed without any artificial [...]

Here comes the second portrait of our regional suppliers: Dorfkäserei Pötzelsberger, Adnet in Salzburger Land For 120 years already the Pötzelsberger family is producing organic cheese through traditional cheese dairy method exclusively from natural raw milk and organic additives. The family run business in the "Salzburger Land" is working closely together with the Adneter dairy farmers, who decided to manage their agriculture sustainable. What does it mean? Economize in harmony with nature and operate within the initial circulation of land, plants, animals and humans. Without chemical fertilizer or long transportation routes. And because of the species-appropriate animal-rearing and feeding of the dairy cows the raw milk has an enormous high nutritional value. And benefits the environment. With a lot of passion and cross-generational expertise the "Dorfkäserei Pötzelsberger" is producing more than 10 different cheese types, each one with an individual flavour. Starting from a "flowery" cheese through an exotic "spicy" one with chilli to the classic one "Magdalenenkäse" you will find not only kind employees in the "Kaslad'n" but also additional home-made natural products from the cheese dairy and different specialties from the agriculture of the Adnet farmers. So let's go to the village cheese dairy in Adnet and try all the different [...]
As promised we start this week with the portraits of our regional suppliers and start with: Trausners Genusswerkstatt in Mauterndorf, Lungau Salzburg Eva-Maria and Walter Trausner produce together with their team and endless passion in their own family-run business tasty jam, delicious fruit jelly cubes and their infamous Enzo-lemonade. Only ingredients which come from house gardens, selected fruit growers or directly from the harvest from the "Biosphärenpark Lungau" are used for the products of the "Genusswerkstatt". They themselves say: Our supplier? It's the nature. Those condiments are getting refined by beet sugar from Austria, so actually all used substances are regional procured. Since over 10 years, the Trausners Family and their team are doing what they love the most and what they know best: fabricate new creations with a lot of love, which are not only super tasty but also regionally and substainably produced. The goal of the family business is to work in accordance with the nature, to protect her and to spoil us with the most delicious creations. Starting from strawberry-lavender marmalade through gentian-syrup to peppermint fruit jelly cubes, the "genusswerkstatt" lives up to it's name. And didn't just capture our hearts but also our tummies :) For more information [...]
