Schroeders herb factory

Herbal garden & workshop

In the municipality of Passail located in the heart of the Naturpark Almenland, the Schroeder family lovingly produces select herbal products from hand-picked herbs grown in their own garden. The fascinating, slow-growing garden is also open for visits by interested guests.

Chef Sven Schroeder is a qualified herbal educator who is happy to share his knowledge in his nature workshop for biodiversity:

  • Tips for everyday life
  • Raising awareness for a sustainable way of life
  • Boosting regional awareness
  • Creating an herb garden
  • Using your own herbs in the kitchen and home pharmacy

There is a farm store in the herb garden, offering a large selection of products for sale.
The “Tischlein Deck Dich” bicycle tour passes right by the show garden. All bikers are cordially invited to enjoy a free herbal juice from the self-serve bar as a small refreshment to make the climb easier!  Naturally you can also take a short break and visit the show garden. The offer is open until the late summer.
