The Pankrazhofer

The Pankrazhofer Vierkant farm has been in existence for several centuries and is owned by the Eder family. Eva and Norbert have been running their farm as an organic farm with a Schaumosterei for several years now. With a great deal of passion and commitment, they have been able to combine tradition and modernity. In addition to their main occupation, cider and juice production, they also produce vinegar, keep suckler cows and grow old arable crops such as spelt and linseed.

Norbert Eder - a passionate cider maker

Cider making has a long tradition in Upper Austria and in the Mühlviertel, our home region. At Pankrazhofer in Tragwein, they have been coaxing the best out of orchard fruit with the press for generations.

Norbert Eder finds it difficult to stand still, so his passion for good, high-quality food has driven him to further develop well-known traditions. Fruit varieties that ripen side by side in the Mühlviertel orchards go into the press separately and as single varieties in order to unite in harmony to form a new whole after fermentation. They cannot and will not deny their terroir - their Mühlviertel homeland.

As a cider maker with close ties to nature, Norbert Eder processes the fruit using the latest technology to preserve its flavour. That's why the Eder family takes a lot from nature: the harvest is different every year, as is the Pankrazhof cider and juice range.

Eva Eder and the organic vinegar makers

A wish became reality - Eva Eder from Pankrazhofer and Barbara Peterseil from Bioobstbau Peterseil had the dream of making their own vinegar.

Due to the vinegar bacteria, the must makers did not want to produce vinegar on their own farms, so another solution had to be found. This is how Birgit Stutz-Prückl from the Dambachler distillery came into the picture.

Together they formed the Organic Vinegar Makers and dedicated themselves to the ancient art of vinegar production. The basis for the high-quality vinegar matures in the cellars of the two companies Pankrazhofer and Peterseil: the best apple and pear must. The must is then transformed into fine vinegar in the Mühlviertel vinegar factory Dambachler and finally further refined in the cider houses. This results in 4 types of genuine fermented vinegar. The vinegar makers do this with a great deal of love and passion.

Cider, juice, vinegar and much more

The entire Pankrazhof product range is available in the farm shop. In addition to organic cider, organic juice and organic vinegar, there is also an organic frizzante, Hugo with cider, brandies and liqueurs as well as organic linseed and organic spelt from the farm's own cultivation.
The products can also be individually gift-wrapped on request.

Experience Pankrazhofer - guided tour & tasting

If you want to gain an insight into the world of organic cider, juice and vinegar production, Pankrazhofer is the right place for you. Guided tours with tastings can be booked for groups on request. Dates are also available for individual visitors: www.pankrazhofer.at/erleben/fuehrungen/

On our guided tours, we take you on a journey from the orchard, through the juicer and cellar to savouring the finished products and their special characteristics. Under the mighty cider pear trees, you will discover everything that is now grown and produced on the farm. In the Schaumosterei you can see the equipment used to process fruit into juice, cider and brandy. Eva has been passionate about vinegar production for several years. Together with two colleagues from Mühlviertel businesses, they have joined forces to form the "Organic Vinegar Makers". The best way to find out how this came about is for Eva to tell you herself while you savour the taste of the musts, frizzante, vinegars, mustards, etc.

approx. 1.5 hours incl. 3 tastings (frizzante, must), free vinegar tasting, free mustard tasting and subsequent opportunity to shop in the farm shop
