Welcome to Agramonia!

Agramonia was founded in order to give the rural regions of Romania a sustainable perspective in line with local traditions. We work for the small farmer of tomorrow and try to make village life positive through digital infrastructure. On this website you can buy local products from the villagers, get an insight into their lives, plan activities and you’re your travel in the original Romania.

The Project

The Project

Most farms in the countryside are self-sufficient, producing mainly for their own needs. Due to a lack of income, many people are tempted to earn money in cities and abroad. Their own land is mostly unused as a result agricultural speculator are becoming increasingly widespread. 

Today, Romania's small farmer  is becoming an outdated model. Agramonia offers an alternative! 

Through rural idyll, local products and an open-minded atmosphere we create a space of well-being and a cultural discovery of Romania. 

Agriculture, harmony and Romania is what Agramonia stands for.

You can expect great views of idyllic landscapes that will delight you. You can look forward to traditional dishes made from fresh homemade ingredients and feel like a local while the charming Romanian culture welcomes you with open arms.

The Region

In Romanian Transylvania, between Sighisoara and Sibiu, off the beaten tourist tracks, lies the Harbachtal cultural landscape. The Harbach high valley is home to many traditional villages, almost all of which were built around a fortified church from the twelfth to the fifteenth century. Today's village life takes place next to these monumental fortified churches mostly in neighbourhoods, in which solidarity with each other is very important. 

The traditional way of farming allowed nature to flourish. The flora became particularly diverse. Many bird species are at home here. With small farms and affectionately kept animals, with gardens and small fields the local population protects and preserves the environment. The gentle hilly landscape is home to rare birds and animals.

Forest fruits, mushrooms and wild herbs can be found in abundance. The European gastronomy region is home to many good products, initiatives such as “hartibac cu drag” and Agramonia are trying to make use of this offer as well as keeping it in process.

Farmers

Farmers

In most of the villages all villagers keep animals and have their own garden; behind the farm buildings lies their own piece of land, on which they are working to feed the whole family. 

Many problems plague today's small farmers, but the lack of appreciation for their work is the most serious. 

With a visit on your part, you not only provide these families an additional income, but also show your appreciation for a very natural life.

Products

The Hartibaciu high valley convinces with good ingredients and even better products; behind every farm there is a family secret recipe and a local agriculture for the production of the ingredients. 

Some of the products are shippable and you can order them through this website and have them delivered to your home.

However, the best way is to visit the producer on site.

Many families are very happy to share their knowledge of the production process, and there is much more to discover and try during a visit.

By making an appointment to buy your product on site you can get in touch with the small farmers directly. When you want to see their products, go on Shop.

Team Stejarisu

Team Stejarisu

The home base of the project is the small village Stejarisu, where the story of Agramonia began. Here we are a  group with the same goal. We want to improve the lives of our families and the village. We have realized that we have to learn from each other and support each other daily. 

Project manager and initiator of Agramonia is Julius Fabini, he catches a lot of enthusiasm about the country and over time developed this project. 

Rodica Gottschling is our kitchen manager. She learned how to cook for larger groups while cooking for the neighbourhood association. She loves to take on responsibility and is an essential pillar of the pension in Stejarisu. She brings with her ten years of professional owner of the pension. 

Alicee takes care of the garden, buys fruits and produces jams. She knows all the herbs and their healing properties. She is the good spirit of the house and the one who listens to the music at maximum volume.

Nelu attended only one class at school, but he is strong as an ox and knows every installation. He has improvisation for everything. As soon as there is a problem somewhere, everyone screams "NEEELUU!!!".

There are many more supporters and helpers who accompany us in our daily business. Especially Kamlesh Pambhar, the guy responsible for our digital development. Together we look forward to a promising future!

Our philosophy

"We do not dominate nature, but we belong to it, we stand in it. But let us not flatter ourselves so much with our human victories over nature. For every such victory she takes revenge on us. ... with every step we are reminded that we do not dominate nature at all, like a conqueror dominates a foreign people, like someone who stands outside nature ... Man is a part of nature." 

- Friedrich Engels "The Dialectic of Nature

In almost all modern societies, man is detached from the surrounding nature. The natural tranquillity increasingly falls victim to an acceleration triggered by technology. The alienation of man from his nature triggerscauses profound ecological, economic and psychological problems. A lot of the inhabitants of rural Transylvania are at the beginning of such alienation due to the necessity to accept jobs in surrounding factories or abroad. Many are no longer able to run their traditional agriculture. -   Tthey have to give up a centuries-old lifestyle, while simultaneously elsewhere  people from somewhere else want to break out of the "technotope" and long toand long to return to their lost nature.

An ever more technology-based world requires ever higher skills from its inhabitants, which are impossible for a large part of Romania's rural population to reach. Migration as migrant workers to cities or abroad too often leads to a dead enddead ends too..

Due to a lack oflittle economic opportunities, Transylvania often has a largely intactunscathed environment that many Western Europeans long forwould be attracted to. Why abandon the sustainable lifestyle that has linked man and nature for centuries? 

Doesn't the country have a chance to further develop village culture, make it competitive, maintain the link between people and products, oppose monocultures to diversity and create the opportunity to live everyday life in harmony with nature? 

Adventurers and culturally interested people who are looking for the "miracle of nature, tradition and culture" can join us on a journey into a time of peace and originality that has long since passed in Western Europe. Under the motto "being a guest among friends" we would like to welcome and offer you a very individual and eventful holiday with deep insights into the village traditions. is a good place to free your mind from stressful everyday life and suffocating thoughts to learn to live in the moment. 

Agramonia is to become a place of cultural exchange: making the most of the modern and the traditional, giving hope to people in a region marked by a lack of prospects.

Crowdfunding

Crowdfunding

As we lack the resources this year to expand the fruit and vegetable processing as planned, but this step is more essential than ever in times of economic hardship in the village, we ask once again for your financial support.

The economic situation is very tense, many transfer payments from people working abroad are missing. Those working in the factory are in short-time work or have already been dismissed. The part of the village population living in precarious conditions (approx. 40%) does not run its own agriculture and works as day labourers in agriculture and on construction projects in the village. These employment relationships are increasingly coming under pressure as the better-off families postpone construction projects and work in agriculture with family members who previously worked in other jobs.

This crowdfunding serves to support day labourers and their families living in precarious conditions. By buying up forest fruits and herbs we can help these families to get over the difficult times.
