The Natur Association

Since 1988 the Thönes Nature association has guaranteed very animal-friendly and environmentally friendly animal keeping, very humane slaughtering, fair prices for farmers and fair wages for employees. Our naturally produced meat tastes so good, because we let nature put the flavor in and because people can feel good about enjoying it. And this is not simply a matter of course. You can find out just how good it tastes at select butcher shops and our partners in grocery retail and food service. Our farmers and butchers aren’t suppliers and customers of ours in the traditional sense, but rather our partners for ensuring top quality. Ask about how exactly we do all this differently from our competitors and visit us in the Lower Rhine cultural landscape in Western Germany or the Müritz lake landscape near the gates of Berlin in Eastern Germany.
