The Innovative Farmers of Europe Award went to mother and daughter from Poland
These ladies have earned their reputation
Where does the most innovative farmer in Europe come from? It is Magdalena Węgiel from Małopolska who, together with her daughter Agnieszka Sendor, successfully restored the tradition of brown trout farming in the Ojców National Park. It is thanks to this initiative that the Małopolska region has been recognized in Brussels, receiving an award for innovation for European farmers☀🌈🐟.
Smack in the middle of one of Poland’s national parks, Ojców National Park, their organic fish farm is making its mark on the organic food map of Europe. ☀
Pstrąg Ojcowski is a family business founded by the mother and daughter who decided to restore the splendor of the ponds located in the heart of the Ojców National Park. “Our goal is to renew brown trout farming, promote conscious and ethical breeding, and educate the community about the history of the region and culinary traditions.”
The trout ponds in Ojców owe their unique character to a picturesque location, natural microclimate and crystal clear and well-oxygenated water from the Młynówka stream. The combination of these factors and, as a result, the imitation of a mountain stream, i.e. the natural environment of brown trout, creates excellent conditions for breeding.☀🌈🐟🥇
Pstrąg Ojcowski is a traditional product from Małopolska, registered by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, and the company Pstrąg Ojcowski belongs to the European Network of Regional Culinary Heritage, uniting producers and restaurateurs, whose aim is to preserve and develop regional culinary traditions characteristic for given regions of the European Union.
Keep it up Ladies!! ☀🥇
