About Us

About us Agramonia is composed of the terms agriculture, Romania and harmony. This project was launched in 2019 and pursues sustainable, social and ecological goals. Agramonia is working to support the endangered smallholder agricultural culture in Romania's rural areas and to embed it harmoniously in the country's changing landscape. The project activities are intended to strengthen the village community, combat poverty and thus limit migration, preserve the biodiversity of the region and, last but not least, preserve the Transylvanian Saxon cultural heritage. The structural change in the agricultural sector, which is characterised by monocultures, high capital expenditure and an ever decreasing need for human labour, is leading to difficult conditions in the smallholder villages of rural Transylvania. The increase of industrial agricultural products reduces the demand and the price of smallholder goods on the market. This makes it more difficult to maintain the traditional family agriculture. Many inhabitants no longer have the opportunity to earn enough money and are forced to move into bigger cities, to work in factories or even to leave their home country for several months in order to earn a living abroad. This can hardly be reconciled with the small traditional agriculture any more and thus the traditional structures decay. The Agramonia project consists of a restaurant with traditional Romanian dishes made from local products and a guesthouse with room for up to forty guests. Both are located in Stejarisu/Probstdorf, a village not far from Sibiu. The project is processing natural products and aims to create a sustainable tourism business. Likewise products of village inhabitants are sold over an onlineshop. A personal relationship between producer and end consumer is established through a online profile of the farm, see more under "Farmer". Using a QR code, the consumer can call up the farmer's profile, order products or book an adventure tour to get to know the individual farms better. With this project Agramonia wants to set impulses and strengthen the rural region in the long run.
