Family Clostermann and the Neuhollandshof

For generations we have been a fruit-growing family in the Lower Rhineland. We now farm our 20ha large fruit orchard according to biodynamic methods based on Rudolf Steiner's agricultural principles. Pioneering spirit and innovative power carry the since 1867 family-owned farm into the future with every new generation.

After the great-grandfather established a modern orchard in 1927, we as the fourth and fifth generation consequently shifted towards organic farming in 1982. The reorganisation of the whole orchard was finally completed in the beginning of the 1990's.

Our orchard undergoes an annual certification process by the Demeter Association.

Today, the orchard has developed towards a many-sided business. With the subsequent processing of our own bio-dynamically grown apples and peas into our own products, we could add a new, sustainable line of business to our farm.

The market leader in our assortment is, next to further variations in this segment, our Appléritif. This sparkling beverages has been awarded the "Pomme D' Or" as best non-alcoholic cider.

No apples without bees!

Because of this, several bee hives are situated at the Neuhollandshof. A group of apiarists takes care of the bees and the apicultural work.

We are looking forward to your visit!
