Sustainability – a matter of the heart
Protecting the environment is a good business in the long term – not just for nature. So we at Mellomgården are happy to make an extra effort for a sustainable future.
As far as possible, we use locally produced ingredients, ranging from vegetables and fruits to milk and cream. Our cheese comes from well-known Sivans in Stora Levene, the beer and apple must from breweries in Falköping and Mariestad, the salmon from Lake Vänern, the wild boar meat from the Skaraborg forests – and so on. The buckwheat flour that is the main ingredient in our galettes comes from Värmland, where Sweden's only buckwheat mill is located – and it is also not very far away.
If there are organic or KRAV-labelled products, we choose them in the first place. And of course, our coffee and teas are Fairtrade branded!
Working in this way minimizes the carbon footprint, while the short transports give us fresh raw materials of the highest quality.
Our sustainability approach also includes minimising waste when planning our menus. And when it comes to energy, we are completely self-sufficient with renewable electricity for the entire farm, thanks to solar panels on the barn roof. In the parking lot there is a charging pole for electric cars – we offer the charging when the café is open!
