HiPP model farm for biodiversity

HiPP model farm for biodiversity – because the preservation of biodiversity is very important to us.

The Ehrensberger Hof farm in Pfaffenhofen has been in the Hipp family since 1956 and has been managed as an organic grassland farm since that time.

In cooperation with scientists from the Technical University of Munich, the Leibniz University Hannover, Bioland and the Bavarian “Landesverbund für Vogelschutz”, HiPP conducts research on practical farming methods to promote organic farming and biodiversity. The findings are then put into practice on our 8,000+ HiPP organic farms. Simple measures allow us to create natural habitats with great biodiversity: red-backed shrike, yellow-bellied toad, eagle owl, barn owl, many bat species and countless insects, microorganisms and many native birds.

By rearing old breeds, we promote biodiversity. At the HiPP model farm we rear, for example, original Braunvieh cattle, of which there are only a few hundred animals left, as well as Appenzeller Spitzhauben chickens.
