25 years of BEO farmers’ initiative

Natur puer vun der Our

25 years ago the agricultural initiative for the Ösling and the Our nature park (BEO) was founded.

Its objectives were and still are:

  • The representation and defence of agricultural interests in the Our nature park
  • Improving the image of local agriculture
  • Improving income through the creation of local niche products
  • The foundation of small agricultural associations

Up to now, we have four associations that produce, develop and market regional niche products:

Beola – Ueliggenossenschaft Éisleck an Naturpark Ourdall

The first association founded in this framework in 1997.

      

BEOLA produces five different vegetable oils by first cold pressure from rapeseed, sunflower, hemp, flax and poppy seeds. The six varieties of buckwheat pasta, one of which is gluten-free, as well as the brand new range of gluten-free seeds and flours are also very popular.

Ourdaller

Is a cooperative society founded in 1999.

It produces six different tastes of “Ourdaller” Mustard based exclusively on seeds originating from the Our natural park. The mustard is sweetened only with honey supplied by the beekeepers of the canton of Clervaux.

The Ourdaller company is also responsible for the marketing and distribution of all “Ourdaller” products.
