We are what we eat!

We are very happy that we finished the process for our organic (BIO) certification! We’ve cooked bio before, but are entitled to refer to it as BIO now!

Which is why we serve healthy and balanced diets to our young guests at Schloss Leizen. Last week we went a level higher and finally got our official certification as an ORGANIC FOOD provider. We can now openly announce that almost all of our suppliers are organic certified (mostly German regional) companies. The two major exceptions are our long-term local partners that deliver excellent quality milk Van der Ham (from the nearby village Bollewick) and fish Die Müritzfischer (from Waren an der Müritz).
