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. This way, shoppers are in contact with the "producers", in spite of the size of the farm shop guarantees: What’s more: Around 30 suckler cows and several calves reside in the so-called cattle enclosure (depending on the season).Read on >
