Today's Good IdeaStraight to the source: an organic market on the farm
Shopping on a farm is nothing new in principle, and has pre-existed and been appreciated for many years, especially by those who are conscious about what they serve on their tables. A farm shop concept viewed through an entirely new point-of-view, has now opened in Windhof. Farmer Guy Meyers has built a structure of at least 400 m² of retail space on his biodynamic farm, where consumers can purchase organic produce and dairy from Meyer’s farm, as well as other organic foods and organic cosmetics from Naturata thanks to a cooperation agreement. The "Naturata Bio Haff-Buttek Meyers Lagoon" is also host to baking bar and bistro area. A terrace with a children's playground is currently being completed. The highlight is the so-called "window to agriculture". The two large double windows were appropriately installed right next to the refrigerated display for dairy products.
