BIODIVERSITY

Nourishing the earth, feeding the future – our mission in every seed.

Transylvania is a biodiversity hotspot of international importance. Thousands of different species live in, on and around the farmlands of Transylvania (ex. 225 bird and 26 bat species, big carnivores like the European brown bear, wolves, Lynx), some extremely rare and under threat of extinction.
