At the beginning of September 2020, we visited a cattle farmer in Abtsgmünd, half an hour behind Schwäbisch Gmünd. He has his herd of Black Angus cattle in the Schlierbach Valley, a nature reserve there.
Outdoors all year round, only grass and the water from the Schlierbach as food, no fattening feed.
On the pasture we met strong-muscled, trusting cattle with shiny black coats.
That convinced us.
We gradually offer all parts of this beef on our menu in a wide variety of preparations.
The idea actually came overnight at the beginning of January. After we had started the new year as refreshed and relaxed as we have not been for years, our restaurant still has to remain closed and we are forced into inactivity – except for preparing the take-away menus – we would like to show our gratitude in this way that we are nevertheless doing well.
Since the second half of January, we have been cooking a hearty, delicious stew once a week, which the Salvation Army distributes to the needy and homeless under the King Charles Bridge.
Or Cafe 72, a day centre for people with and without housing, picks up the stew.
We are supported by our suppliers Francesco Armilotta and Omega Sorg.
