There are economic awards in BHU


Regional or nationwide prices and a lot of media hype have existed since 1998.

The first steps towards nature conservation and the renaturation of Hellmoor were made in the early 1990s. Biotope-shaping measures such as creating hedgerows, leaving natural refuge as fallow land and flower strips at the field edges were started with the conversion to organic farming in 1990. Encouraged by social recognition, sometimes despite mockery, the Lämmerhof persistently continued on its way.

In November 2017, the Lämmerhof was honored by the Loki Schmidt Foundation.
The "silver plant" is an environmental prize that has been awarded since 1977 to actors who care about nature conservation and who have distinguished themselves in particular by preserving the habitats of native plant species. "The award went to Detlef Hack, whose Lämmerhof characterizes organic farming and nature conservation in one. Flowing transitions and structures on the farm areas ensure the survival of many wild herbs by networking the habitats or offer animals living space."

The Demeter e.V. awards the Land-Wirtschafts-Kultur-Preis 2012 to the Lämmerhof in Panten for extraordinary social achievements in the field of agriculture and fairness.

"Detlef Hack has been managing the Lämmerhof in Panten according to organic criteria for around 22 years, and according to Demeter guidelines since 2004. On Saturday, the farm community invited to" sow the future ". At the same time, the company was awarded the" Land Wirtschafts Kultur Preis 2012 "by Demeter excellent.

Around 50 guests gathered in the courtyard's greenhouse to attend the award ceremony. Those present were initially visited by a "cow from the neighboring pasture". Margret Zimmermann from the Demeter Board of Directors of the North West German Agricultural Society looked back on the history of the Lämmerhof, disguised as a cow. In 1989, Detlef Hack switched his parents' farm, which had previously been conventionally operated, step by step to organic farming. Those were crazy ideas back then, says Margret Zimmermann. "He traded good farmland for moorland". But that was one of his visions for young people. The Lämmerhof wanted to let life arise, not produce it. The community not only focused on the natural cultivation of crops and animal welfare, but also on the protection of the landscape and the preservation of biodiversity. Agriculture and nature conservation go hand in hand at the Lämmerhof.
Today around 16 people live and work on the Lämmerhof. The economic focus is arable farming on own and leased land as well as fields of the cooperation partners. In 1990 the farm shop was opened in Mannhagen, which is run by co-owner Christian Brüggemann. In 1997 the trading company Lämmerhof was added, which sells the grain to organic bakeries.

After the laudation, Demeter board member Jan-Uwe Klee presented the "Land Wirtschaft Kultur Preis 2012" to the farm community. The Land Wirtschaft Kultur Prize is more than recognition for the best biodynamic work. Demeter honors companies that provide socially effective impulses. The award shows that, in addition to the production of valuable food, there is also voluntary, socio-cultural, qualitative and ecological commitment. The courtyards awarded the prize follow their own concerns and are not based on minimum standards. They give more back to nature and society than they take from them. The Land Wirtschaft Kultur Preis honors their enthusiasm and commitment. Such exemplary courts can inspire others. "The intact nature is the farm's capital," explains Detlef Hack, "and the occurrence of native, wild species is an indicator of the state of health of our landscape. This has a very direct effect on the quality of our products."
After the award ceremony, the visitors were asked to symbolically cultivate a field of rye. This "sow the future" campaign is intended to underline the demand for GMO-free agriculture. "
