Forestry, research, cows and compost, agroforestry and agriculture - this is how we investigate and develop different forms of multifunctional land use.

Thinking from the ground up

Soil quality is the fundamental basis of all our work.
Here in Alt Madlitz, Brandenburg, we have the worst possible foundation for farming due to extremely low rainfalls and very sandy, low nutrient soil.
Nevertheless we believe that even in our climate, adopting adaptable land use models is the key to solving many of the most pressing problems – from climate change and biodiversity, as well as social issues  
This is why here in Alt madlitz, on our 3,000 hectares we are working on a variety of multifunctional farming methods to build healthy and resilient ecosystems: from holistic pasture management to composting, syntropic agroforestry, forest conversion, the development of new software and technology.

Join our team!

What unites us: our passion for agriculture and forestry. Do you share this passion? Then apply now for one of our open positions! We are currently looking for: Agroforestry manager, a crop farmer and interns!

Farm Dinner 26. August

A long table, under the open sky, in the middle of a field. We are very happy to invite you to Madlitz – for a summer dinner at the end of August with our friends from Restaurant Ember!

We will be grilling on an open fire with the best ingredients from our farm & the most beautiful vegetables from our neighbors Ackerpulco. Served up as a late summer 3 course meal. On the horizon the sunset & the wide pasture. It will be beautiful.


We love to welcome people at our farm, share our experiences and the beauty of our work with people. So this summer, for the first time, we’re offering public farm tours (in German language only) with our hay wagon on several weekends – several Saturdays at 11am! Click here to get more info
