Our house with garden is 60km southeast from Kassel, in the friendly village Oberellenbach, we rented a stable for the horses on another bd farm in the village, our fields and meadows are spread around the village. This year we could double the number of our CSA members up to 90. On ca. 3 ha we grow 50 different sorts of vegetables and 18 different sorts of potatoes. We have no greenhouses yet. We work only by hand and with the horses. (2 of our horses are trained for work and You also can ride them.) We live in a very rural area, nevertheless there is big interest in our vegetables.
