With great pleasure we‘ve traditionally awarded the best of our more than 500 farmers with the Weyermann® Brewing Barley Producer Award – Harvest 2021.
With this award, which was launched for the first time in 2012, we are recognizing the special achievements of our regional grain farmers for the tenth time in a row.
The promotion of regional grain cultivation in Upper Franconia is important to us. That is why we are developing our raw material location in Leesau into the most attractive grain collection location in the region. We have been investing continuously since the takeover in 2006.
In this way, we offer our local farmers security for cultivation of important types of grain such as brewing barley, brewing rye and brewing wheat, as well as the possibility of direct marketing without intermediaries.
This year we awarded the following: Mario Reiche (Thurnau), Maurus Taubmann (Kasendorf), Helmut Hacker (Wonsees), Reinhard Schmitt (Weismain) und Michael and Christoph Jurkat (Neuenmarkt).
Due to Corona, we chose to send the presents via mail.
Each farmer received a hand-made and hand-painted plate from the traditional pottery in Thurnau, a Weyermann® polo shirt embroidered with his name and a Weyermann® history, signed by Sabine Weyermann herself.
We are proud of the fruitful cooperation with our over 500 farmers – for us precious and loyal partners!
