THE STORY of Chokeberry+

The Bermes family has been engaged in viticulture and arable farming since 1860. We have always been eager to look for new alternatives and ways of cultivation. So we were one of the pioneers for the use of machinery in the early 1930s concerns about the very early cultivation of sunflowers to the mechanization of the grape harvest in the 1980s. After the conversion of viticulture to organic farming in 1999, it is now time to restructure arable farming as well – the logical consequence of continuous development.

The idea of CHOKEBERRYANBAU (chokeberry) was born. After planting a test area of 6 hectares in 2016, we decided to make a complete switch from classic arable farming with cereal crops such as barley and wheat to an ecological farming method and to CHOKEBERRYANBAU (chokeberry). In the meantime, our chokeberry cultivation area of 108 hectares is the largest in the whole of Germany. (as of 2020)

After extensive research and the enthusiasm of the benefits of the berry, the Chokeberry+ idea was born. 100% mother juice bottled in innovative containers that can provide you with sufficient vitamins and also protect against diseases.

Where does the chokeberry originally come from?

At that time, chokeberry was discovered in North America. Later, the plant came to Europe through traders and was cultivated mainly in Poland and Ukraine. Accordingly, it was only a matter of time until the plant was also grown in Germany.
