For four generations we have lived in the Rohnen in Feusisberg with a view of Lake Zurich. Not only my wife and I, our four children and my mother Rita live on the farm, but also 22 dairy cows and a few cats. We cultivate a lot of land and forest around our local mountain, the Etzel. Due to the numerous steep slopes we are always dependent on manpower and do a lot of manual work, because a part of our country is not passable with machines. So if you have had enough of weightlifting in the fitness centre, you are welcome to help us with raking for a day, including physical fitness in the fresh air!
Our fruits are true taste and vitamin bombs! You can buy old Swiss cherry varieties, apples, pears and plums from us. They all grow on tall trees, some of which are over a hundred years old. By the way, the shape of a tree allows you to tell from a distance whether it is an apple or pear tree. As soon as the fruits are ripe, we pick them directly from the tree and sell them. A large part of it is processed into fine Feusisberger juice.
We hope that we will be able to keep our magnificent high pedigrees in the future, because unfortunately the Asian cherry vinegar fly has spread rapidly in recent years and has caused total failures throughout Switzerland. Although many farmers have felled their trees as a consequence, we would like to leave our beautifully blooming high pedigrees standing and hope that a solution will soon be found.
With a tree sponsorship you can protect our existing trees (apples, pears, cherries, plums) and receive annually fresh Feusisberger fruits. Such a sponsorship is also very suitable as a gift for a child who grows with him and bears fruit after only a few years.
If you are interested in a tree sponsorship, fresh fruit, sweet must or milk production, please visit us.
We look forward to hearing from you!
