Leiner is a family business located in the southern Pfalz region of Germany. For over 40 years their passion and dedication has kept them going. In 2005 they went fully Organic, and in 2011 they applied and received their Demeter certification for Biodynamics without a waiting period (no small feat! Most farms need a transition period to eliminate pesticides from the land etc but they were ready to go!).
