Everyone in the Permaculture scene has heard of, or studied the works of Sepp Holzer to some extent, if not, then their tunnel vision is testament to their level of research skill.

Sepp Holzer in Austria

Ever since I decided to buy Sepp’s main book ‘Holzer Permaculture’Ā from the Book Stand at the London Permaculture Festival 2015, I was truly captivated, this man Knows what he is doing and he was practicing Permaculture way before the word had even been coined!

Sepp Holzer, a short Bio :

Sepp Holzer (born July 24, 1942 in Ramingstein, Province of Salzburg, Austria) is a farmer, author, and an international consultant for natural agriculture. He took over his parents’ mountain farm business in 1962 and pioneered the use of ecological farming, or permaculture, techniques at high altitudes (1100 to 1500 meters above sea level) after being unsuccessful with regular farming methods.

Holzer was called the “rebel farmer” because he persisted, despite being fined and even threatened with prison, with practices such as not pruning his fruit trees (unpruned fruit trees survive snow loads that will break pruned trees). He has created some of the world’s best examples of using ponds as reflectors to increase solar gain for Passive solar heating of structures, and of using the microclimate created by rock outcrops to effectively change the hardiness zone for nearby plants. He has also done original work in the use of Hugelkultur and natural branch development instead of pruning to allow fruit trees to survive high altitudes and harsh winters.

Ponds and House at his 45ha Krameterhof Farm

His expanded farm – the Krameterhof – now spans over 45 hectares of forest gardens, including 70 ponds, and is said to be the most consistent example of permaculture worldwide.
In 2009 Sepp Holzer left the Krameterhof in the hands of his son Josef Andreas Holzer. Since 2013 Sepp Holzer lives on his new farm – the Holzerhof farm – in the Burgenland, Austria. He is currently conducting permaculture (“Holzer Permaculture”) seminars both at his Holzerhof farm and worldwide.

He is anĀ author of several books, works nationally as a permaculture-activist in the established agricultural industry, and works internationally as an adviser for ecological agriculture.
