Nestled in Hirschbach im Mühlkreis, a municipality in northern Austria’s hill-scapes, Bergkräuter is one of the nation’s leading farmers’ cooperatives.

By pooling their agricultural land and know-how, and channelling their resources toward the cultivation and distribution of organic herbs, the farmers succeeded in securing their survival, penetrating new markets, and generating new business. Today, Bergkräuter comprises over 100 growers who supply the cooperative with a healthy mix of spices, teas, sugars and sweeteners, juices, personal care products, condiments
