An ambitious project around the ostrich bird
Stephan Schötz, the ostrich man, has set himself the goal of further establishing the farm animal ostrich as a meat supplier in Germany. At Straussenfritze, 60 - 100 ostriches live on about eight hectares, mainly in the outdoor area. The animals are kept in social herd groups. The feed consists of fresh grass, hay or grain. If you would like to learn more, you are always welcome to making an appointment for a guided tour through the farm.
With craftsmanship and patience to taste
Uwe Marschke supplies Brandenburg top restaurants and Berlin star restaurants.
Besides well known herbs such as chives or parsley, he grows highly aromatic bronze fennel, sorrel, chickweed, marigold. As in old times, he leaves each year one third of the cultivated area fallow. When the soil recovers in this way, no chemical fertilizer is needed to produce good harvests. He also dispenses with spraying agents.

Best beans. Traditional roasting on every day.
The Berliner Kaffeerösterei roasts fresh every day, according to clear rules, naturally gently in the drum roasting machine. The Berliner Kaffeerösterei company follows a clear purchasing philosophy: "Direct Trade". In contrast to "Fair Trade", the focus is on the direct relationship with the coffee farmer "at eye level". Roasting is not done short and hot like in big industry. Here, one takes the time to roast the beans by hand in a gentle low-temperature long-term batch roasting process for between 12 and 18 minutes, depending on the variety.
