The organic farm in Harduf
The organic farm in Harduf grows as much food as possible for our cows. All the dung from our cow-shed returns to our fields as compost. The cows eat food grown according to the organic Bio-Dynamic method, adhering to international standards and they do not get genetically-modified foods or hormones. They are treated using palliative and alternative medicine.The cows' food contains only plant-based ingredients and some minerals, no chemical medicaments are used.
There is an emphasis on providing improved living conditions for the cows and the calves.
