Matthias Posch-Obing

Matthias and Christine Posch took over their farm from Christine's parents in 1992 and ran it conventionally for ten years. During this time they came into contact with homeopathy and effective microorganisms, which completely changed their worldview. Shortly thereafter, the two decided to rearrange their farm.

"In 2002 we relocated our farm to a green meadow, built a new freestall barn according to organic guidelines and in 2004 we started to convert to organic. We have been a recognized organic farm since 2006," explains the Demeter farmer.

“On the field is winter barley, winter wheat, rye, spelt, malting barley, oats for Barnhouse, summer barley, oats, peas, grain maize and buckwheat. We are doing experiments with table mustard and winter rapeseed. All fruits are cultivated without a plough, using undersown crops and some camelina. Care is taken to keep the field always green in order to build up humus," explains Matthias.

In addition to farming, the family with four children also keeps animals. In addition to 20 nurse cows, they own 150 heifers to fatten Chiemgau natural meat.

They run the farm as a full-time business and, in addition to trainees, they often have interns on their farm. In addition, Waldorf students come to the farm every year for their agricultural internship, where Matthias and his family also offer spiritual lectures and seminars as well as healing methods. More information can be found on the farm's website.
