Dyk-Mill has been a Demeter partner for decades. We act for the Demeter community as a takeover & storage partner as well as a producer of Demeter flour milling products.
Demeter is the oldest association for organic agriculture and has a clear goal:
It serves the human being and promotes physical, mental and spiritual development in equal measure. Biodynamic products are a gift in their specialness and at the same time the result of consistent, loving work by people with conviction, knowledge and skill.

Ecological measures around production
ECOLOGICAL MEASURES AROUND PRODUCTION
We strive to use energy carefully and responsibly. Until 2015 we operated a small hydroelectric power station (Francis turbine) with a fish ladder, which covered about 30% of our electricity needs.
In 2014, we decided to build a new hydropower plant.
This double-regulated Kaplan turbine was put into operation in spring of 2017 and has three times the power output when the water level in the river Thaya is sufficient. In the course of this project, a flood protection (flap weir system) for the city center of Raabs/Thaya was also realized.
We also produce electricity by means of photovoltaics, this plant is to be expanded continuously.
POWER FUEL SET
For more than 15 years we have been offering owners of electric/hybrid vehicles the opportunity to charge their car with electricity from renewable energy.
Partner of E-Friends
Since February 2020 we have been selling our free electricity from the generation of our hydroelectric power plant to an organization called eFriends. eFriends makes it possible to share clean and regionally generated electricity with a revolutionary technology for everyone.
Our team is always engaged to deliver products of the highest quality and to meet our customers sincere, responsible and friendly. Over the years we got a lot of awards for our performance as a committed and sustainable commercial enterprise.
