Meet our friends – the makers
Without our local farmers, foragers and small scale producers we wouldn’t survive.
Their products, from the forest, sea and fields, empower our dishes and combined with our own flowers and herbs – we reach for the stars.
In this section, we would like to introduce some of our friends that make Wicca possible.
Organic free grown chickens from Äntu in our dishes
Organic free grown chickens have more space in the hens and if they feel like they can nap on the wooden ladders. When the weather is warm they walk around the yard, thus they have considerably better living conditions than chickens grown in big factories.
On organic chicken farms, the chicken are fed organically grown food, produced right there on the Äntu manor house grounds. This food does not contain traces of fertilizers and is GMO free.
Free grown organic chickens live considerably longer than chickens in the factories.
Thanks to all the above the organic free grown chicken meat is culinary much more valuable and delicious.

As their farms are organic and the animals are fed only on grass – they created the state-certified grass-fed beef quality scheme. They found out that the grasslands of Estonia are amongst the richest natural grasslands in the world. All animals that are raised according to the scheme are living in their natural environment, grazing on pastures in summer and feeding on hay in the wintertime. Besides the fact that the animals are stress-free and happy, this way of managing the grasslands is also good for the environment. The meat from organic grass-fed beef is super tasty, it’s also very nutritious and rich in healthy fats and vitamins.
