Re: Zurich: home delivery of vegetables/fruits from farmers?

Lots of places suggested for Zurich area - I'm looking for something like this in Luzern - anyone have any suggestions? Doesn't have to be home delivery (although it'd be great), but a fixed rate per month/year of local produce.

no I did not - yet. I prefer summer fruit so I'll probably start ordering now the weather's better.

www.ortoloco.ch

This is a garden cooperative in Dietikon. My German is not good but I think its about 1100chf/year (2-3 people) and although they dont deliver there are depots around various parts of Zurich. I believe you have to do 5(?) hours work a year for them as well.
I have not used them and dont know anyone that has but would welcome any feedback.
I have shared an Ortoloco subscription with a friend of mine. It was really nice, good variation, all organic, some special veggies with fun colours etc.

You don't have to speak German that well to participate (good reason to practice!). We had a 2 person abbo and paid 50 CHF a month each, plus a 250 CHF fee to the genossenschaft but you get that back after you quit. You can pick which depot you prefer, they are in good locations (ours was Selnau).

The special thing with Ortoloco is that you have to 'help/work' 5 times in a year (per person, for a 2 person subscription). Usually these are 2-3 hour long tasks - delivering the veggies to the depots, packing the veggies in bags, cooking for group events.

I think I heard that they are planning to include cheese and dairy products in the abbo's soon

How about Farmy? https://www.farmy.ch/

I saw their booth in the Garmont Messe in Zurich and was so curious about it.

I am going to order something next week and will let you know if it goes well =)

Anymore thoughts about Farmy? Did you make your order Heyhey?
Trying to work out how their prices compare, but I get a bit lost.
