How big is your farm today?
Twelve employees currently farm 250 hectares of land on which we grow organic chia. We harvest about 200 tonnes each year.
How is the partnership with Naturkost Übelhör set up?
We agree very fair contractual terms each year. Übelhör gives us the guarantees we need, so we know we will be able to sell everything we harvest. This is important because our production costs have increased significantly due to the organic farming methods we use. Naturkost Mexico, Übelhör’s subsidiary in Mexico, gives us advice on how to cultivate our crops organically and on new agricultural technologies and processes. Übelhör, in turn, can rely on us to work hard to ensure that the chia seeds are of a good organic quality and that we comply with the certification criteria. We follow appropriate crop rotation methods and work very conscientiously. We work completely side by side with Übelhör, but our relationship also goes beyond business. A friendship has developed between us and the employees at Naturkost Mexico and Naturkost Übelhör.
