In front of our farm house we have two orchards full of apples and pears that are typical for this region (Rosenäpfel, Salzburger, Kronzels, Rote Pichl Birnen, Eigelsbacher Birnen, Wasserbirnen), plums, mirabelles, blue elderberry and rowan berry.

Part of our apples is made into naturally cloudy apple juice (about 500 litres), which you can try in our farm house or in the Penzinghof.

The remaining fruit gets mashed and mixed with yeast and enzymes and then put into 200 litre barrels to ferment. In autumn we use the fruit to make schnapps in our 100 litre water bath distillation of Eduard Holstein. The home-made schnapps remains stored for a few months in order to mature before it gets bottled (0,5 litres), labeled and sealed.
