How did it all start?
Maria’s knowledge as the owner of Ideafarm date back to her childhood, where her grandmother taught her how to use herbs. In countryside we always live in harmony with nature and first medical help was always found from nature, based on folk medicine!
First she started to make apple vinegar and syrups at home and soon opened a factory shop in Orissaare, Põripõllu village in Saaremaa (open workdays 9:00-16:00), where all the farm products can be found.
Sustainable business is important to Maria: “Nature offers us different plants in different stages of the year. In this way, it is possible to engage in production all year round without exhausting yourself and nature. ” We allso reuse as much as we can.
Most of the plants are harvested together with family members and acquaintances on the farm’s 13 ha of land. The farm also has its own rose, big herb and appletree garden. Jam, jelly, vinegar and syrups are made from rose petals. Thus, most of the raw materials come from Kalda Farm and the help of nearby farms is also used.
Thanks to our production of apple vinegar and wine large nearby apple orchards have been preserved. Blossoming season at island is a wonderful experience!
