Hay for lining the birdhouses and beehives for bumblebees.
Amount sufficient for 2 birdhouses or smaller beehives for bumblebees or for 1 larger beehive for bumblebees (type T1)

Why hay?

Before hanging the birdhouses, pour a bit of sawdust into them. They are meant to replace the rot found in every natural hollow. Without this, the birds may be less willing to colonize the boxes. This applies especially to those species that do not cover the nests. The sawdust layer should have a thickness of 2-3 cm. Instead of sawdust, peat or a mixture of peat and sawdust can be used.

Cleaning the nests after the season

Due to the fact that the birds do not clean the nests themselves, a lot of dirt collects in the interior, in which parasites multiply. In the uncleaned houses, the old nests are piling up one above the other, making it impossible to set up new breeding sites over time. Cleaning the boxes usually does not cause any trouble. All types of boxes should be cleaned only from August to the end of February, making sure that the box is not inhabited. Cleaning properly made does not leave any old nests or dust in the house. Before closing the box, one must remember about putting a new layer of sawdust, peat or hay on the bottom.

The protection of natural and cultural heritage is an important sphere of the Farm's activities, and one of the basic goals is to preserve biodiversity and breeding useful organisms that can be used in agriculture and horticulture.

Since 1989, we have been implementing a program for implementing of bumblebees and solitary bees for horticulate practice and since 2012 the company has been running its own breeding of solitary bees on a commercial scale. By participating in the creation of biological progress, we respond to the high demands placed on by food consumers and our customers in the field of high quality of offered products and the safety of their use.

The farm is part of the regional biodiversity conservation center. In this area of engagement, it runs conservation collections of crops with high biological value (historical varieties of agricultural, vegetable and fruit plants). In cooperating organic farms, it also oversees collections of medicinal, herbal and melliferous plants. Similar works are carried out for the protection of rare and endangered plants.

The sphere of cultural heritage includes products decorated in a way characteristic for different cultural groups. The high quality of our products is appreciated by very demanding customers. Their valuable remarks make the farm's offer constantly replenished and the products are perfected.
