Organic Farm Žnideršič: Pioneering Sustainable Agriculture

Success Story

Organic Farm Žnideršič, led by Toni Žnideršič, exemplifies sustainable farming in Slovenia. Spanning 80 hectares, the farm focuses on regenerative practices for milk, meat, cereals, viticulture, and forestry.

Farm Žnideršič employs regenerative methods that limit soil interference, resulting in improved soil health over two decades. Utilizing circular harrows and a specialized loosener, the farm eschews plowing in favor of minimal cultivation. Winter crops like clover, corn, triticale, barley, and more are sown for greening and ground cover, forming a comprehensive rotation. Organic farming principles guide their fight against weeds through crop rotation, ensuring continuous vegetation cover that serves both animal feed and soil health. The farm's approach reduces costs, fosters environmental benefits, and sustains organic quality.

Toni Žnideršič's commitment to learning and innovation drives the farm's success. Challenges like mechanization gaps are met with persistence and observation. As a beacon of sustainable agriculture, Žnideršič harmonizes tradition and innovation for a promising farming future.
