In harmony with nature
The Clavadetscher farm in Malans has been managed according to organic guidelines for two generations. Roman Clavadetscher, who took over the farm together with Valérie Cavin in 2004, also knows nothing else – for him it only works with nature. Extremely important to them in the cultivation of the products are healthy soils, so that they can produce the best quality food. The only challenge is the logistics to their customers, because the products should reach them fresh every day.
When raising animals, they take special care to cultivate a natural environment. An important part of this is being out in the fresh air on pasture as much as possible.

Products from Malans in the restaurant s’nani
At s’nani you will find some products from the Clavadetscher farm. Among other things, garlic, onions, fennel, beetroot, celery, cabbage, chilli and carrots are grown completely without pesticides, like all products on the farm.
In addition to the poulets and the soup chicken, the s’nani also offers the brother cocks from the Clavadetscher farm. The special thing about this is that these are the brothers of the laying hens, which would otherwise be killed on the first day of life in other farms.

Why is this a match?
S’nani understands that there are no summer vegetables in winter and adapts the menu to the seasons. The restaurant goes to great effort to serve guests with regional products. For us a reliable partner.
