Organic farming – sustainable from the beginning

The Association of Organic Food Producers (AÖL) celebrates its 30th anniversary this year and we would like to congratulate them! As a long-time member, we like to network with other producers and learn from each other. We would like to pass on the knowledge to you.

For organic farming, sustainability means in concrete terms: conserving limited sources of energy and raw materials, striving for closed material and energy cycles, and avoiding external means of production. Diverse crop rotations also ensure that the natural ecosystem can regulate itself as naturally as possible. Other measures, such as flower strips and hedges, encourage beneficial insects and provide appropriate habitats for wild animals and plants. The focus on diversity – so fundamental to organic farming – thus brings numerous positive benefits for nature and biodiversity conservation.
