Philately Liechtenstein is continuing its popular series of self-adhesive definitive stamps on a 20-stamp sheet with four indigenous types of grain: “Oats” (value: CHF 0.85), “Barley” (value: CHF 1.00), “Maize” (value: CHF 1.50) and “Millet” (value: CHF 2.00) are grown in Liechtenstein and partly processed here too. Farming in Liechtenstein is autonomous and diverse with one third of the national territory used for farming. Apart from dairy and meat products, agriculture, horticulture and viticulture is carried out. In this context, grain accounts for a share of around six percent of the agricultural land spanning 5,234 hectares.
Maize, which was originally came from Mexico, is often grown in the Alpine state as a fodder plant. Ever since the 17th century, grain has also played an important role in the cultural and economic history of the region. Cornmeal is a basic ingredient of Ribel, a traditional regional dish. From the 18th until well into the 20th century, Ribel counted as one of the main foods of the smallholder farming population in the Rhine Valley and was usually eaten at breakfast time.
