Lechtal herb witches
The origin of our herb witches comes from a course by the Ländliches Fortbildungsinstitut, where all kinds of interesting facts about herbs and medicinal plants had to be learned. The Lechtaler Kräuterhexen (Lechtal herb witches) association was then created as part of the final project. Since then, the herb witches have been burning to pass on their profound knowledge to all nature lovers in courses, on herb walks through the region and in workshops. Today, a lot is mixed, tried out and passed on in the kitchens of the Lechtaler Kräuterhexen, which is why the products with the Lechtaler Kräuterhexen label attest to high and valuable quality.
