Naturally good, highest quality

From seed to harvest to product

Schloss & Gut Wendlinghausen maintains a tradition of biologically responsible farm management. The fundamentals of organic farming are put into practice.

Our priority is to farm in the most environmentally friendly manner possible. It is our upmost goal to act responsibly in order to save natural soil and water resources. We believe in ensuring sustainability without the use of artificial fertilizers, chemicals or genetically modified technology. We choose to utilize natural fertilizers from neighbouring farms. Indeed, by implementing these methods we are able to yield the highest possible quality and the most authentic flavour.

Grains, in addition to the large assortment of vegetable like crops like carrots, potatoes, peas, radishes and beans, are also grown on the estate. Our high quality criteria can be tasted in every one of our products.

There is a herdsman on the property with over 600 sheep, horses and pedigree dogs also add to the distinctive diversity of the estate.

We are happy to offer a professionally guided tour of our organic farm when you visit our estate. Tours are available during any one of our many castle festivals or they can be arranged within the framework of our multiple cultural events that take place throughout the year. Come and experience it firsthand, you will be convinced of the importance and beauty of organic farming.

Bio-village plus fermentation plant: Using a combination of dung and clover from Schloss und Gut Wendlinghausen, in addition to raw materials from additional growers, a renewable raw materials (NaWaRo) fermentation plant is to be put into operation in order to provide heat and power to the village of Wendlinghausen. Those that are interested have the chance to purchase or build affordable energy efficient single-family homes next to the castle park.

Builders, companies and community contractors can set up a so-called "Ökokonto/ Energy account" to compensate eventual environmental damage. According to recent changes in laws impacting land development in OWL, it is important to look for ways to increase the ecological value and biotope network of all future projects.
