The miracle berry

The aronia berry is a very old fruit that has been rediscovered in recent decades. With its ingredients, it has an extremely positive effect on the health of every individual. Hermi and Edi Ponsold have dedicated themselves to this miracle berry for several years. In 2014 the planting took place on two hectares with 8,000 bushes. The company is located at 820 m above sea level in Hohenau an der Raab, in the middle of the Almenland Nature Park. In addition to the aronia berries, herbs thrive on the farm and ALMO oxen graze on the home pastures.

The aronia product range is very large: Aronia original juice, syrup, tea, fruit spreads, dried berries, chocolate, liqueur, vinegar and much more!

Aronia farm shop:
The farm shop is open every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. all year round.
