About us

Sieben Prinzipien Landschaft

Bioland is the leading association for organic farming in Germany. About 7300 farmers, gardeners, beekeepers and winegrowers produce according to the Bioland standards. In addition more than 1000 processors such as bakeries, dairies, butchers, restaurants and traders are also Bioland partners. Together they share common values that benefit people and environment.

For over 45 years Bioland members have developed an ecologically, economically and socially sound alternative to the intensive conventional farming system that depends on industry and outside investors. The aim of the daily work of farmers is the sustainable production of high quality and healthy food.

Working in balance with nature, supporting biodiversity and protecting our environment and climate will secure our livelihoods and a diverse cultural landscape. Organic farming means taking responsibility for the future. The Seven Bioland Principles for Agriculture in the Future form important cornerstones of this aim.

Bioland bears social responsibility by establishing sustainable jobs and maintaining a living culture in the country. This is accomplished by fair partnerships between farmers, manufacturers and retailers.

Fairer prices in these partnerships provide the economic basis for the sustainable development of independent farms and make organic farming an attractive profession for young people. Bioland constantly enhances the system of organic farming and thus the sustainability of agriculture as a whole.
Bioland is a registered association (in German "eingetragener Verein") and is a democratic grass roots organisation founded 1971. In representing the interest of its members and partners Bioland promotes societal values and is engaged in the next steps for the way forward.
Bioland develops solutions for current and future challenges such as adequate supply of healthy and gmo-free food, animal friendly farming and climate protection.

Bioland represents the future of agriculture.
