Knowledge about the power of trees
our female, KLEINARL lumberjack - without a chainsaw
At the LUMBERJACK, Christine Höller is our herb and forest expert and therefore the most important supplier for all ingredients of the dishes. Each station has a special offer like a recommendation of the house. The love for nature, especially for trees and bushes and the great interest in their energy and healing powers is fascinating for Christine. Christine collects fresh wild herbs and parts of plants by hand, almost all of them in Kleinarlertal, and processes them carefully and with a lot of love. In the LUMBERJACK project, she introduces all of her knowledge like the power of trees and her passion for processing tree buds and tops.
For further processing and preservation, Christine Kleinarler uses bee honey from her own beehive, Austrian organic beet sugar, energetic Urstein salt from the Zechstein era, natural apple cider vinegar made from untreated fruits, organic white wine from Burgenland and organic grain from Upper Austria for the stone pine schnapps.
Christines forest selection for the LUMBERJACK is wide and deep
The three Kleinarler vinegars with the ingredients from the wild harvesting are the basis for many dressings for salads at the Energy Station.
A vinegar extract form ash sprouts in cider vinegar refined with spruce bud honey. With lots of love and a minimum of 6 months of maturing, a high-quality product with a sensational forest taste is created.
Elderflower vinegar extract refined with Kleinarl bee honey. Not only immune-boosting but a fragrant, delicate elderflower taste also spoils the discerning palate.
SPRuce top honey
Spruce tops, carefully collected by hand, Austrian organic beet sugar, lots of love and patience while stirring. The result let all those with a sweet tooth float to the peak of pleasure. In salad dressings and as toppings with soft ice cream.
Spruce tops boiled down with Austrian organic preserving sugar. Fine harmonious taste. Served with a cheese snack on a board from Bio aus dem Tal.
The spruce tops are ground with organic Austrian beet sugar, the flavonoids and essential oils are absorbed by the sugar. Christine's forest sugar provides the basis for many creative desserts.
Spruce top butter
Spruce tops processed with organic butter from the milk dairy from Bio aus dem Tal on the Hirschleiten.
Ripe rowan berries with pears and apple in mustard seeds, natural apple cider vinegar, organic beet sugar and apple pectin combine a unique composition that goes particularly well with the “sleek Kleinarler” from the organic cheese dairy in the valley. Furthermore, the taste based on the sweet mustard goes well with fresh sausages.
Many different trees, leaves, flowers and seeds are refined in a balanced and energetic way in the energetic primal salt from the Zechstein era. (Ash, birch, linden, elm, spruce, larch, stone pine, poplar, walnut, maple, mountain pine, fir and alder)
Christine's alpine vermouth, the LUMBERJACK aperitif that delights everyone. Organic white wine from Burgenland refined with the finest alpine herbs, spices and organic beet sugar. Served with ice cubes and a lemon wedge - a pleasure.
Green pine cones, harvested at the perfect time in Kleinarl, made with high-quality organic grain from Upper Austria. Treat yourself to a glass at Brigitte's Cafe Latini at the schnapps bar.

The summer of 2022 was a chanterelle year in our region and the supply of frozen chanterelles previously sautéed in organic olive oil is correspondingly large - and then as a culinary highlight in the potato soup.
