Zurich: home delivery of vegetables/fruits from farmers?

Hi!

has anyone looked into this and would have any specific farmer to reccomend?

I have seen a couple but am unsure...

I tried to search but did not find other threads so starting a new one!

Would love to hear your experiences in this!

Cheers,
K

We have eggs delivered weekly. For fruit and veg we go up the street to the local farmers house where they have the unmanned honour system. It's really good and they have home made icecream too.
You need to post your village or location to get results that will be relevant for you.

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

I know this does not help you in Zürich. However, I know this happens in Delémont. My swiss boyfriend has a good friend who pays 80CHF per month for a delivery of fresh various veg from a local farmer!

So, it is possible around Zürich....

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

I am in Zurich city, Wiedikon

Have seen a couple like for example Queer Beet etc but was wondering if anyone had first hand experience.

Am really looking for a delivery service as at this point of our life going to hand pick is not an option, but in the future I can see how that would work well

Cheers,
K

Where in Wadenswil is the one you go to? I'd love to start getting more fruits and veggies from the local farmers than the grocery store, but never know where they are!! And do they post suggested prices or is it one of those "you should know what to leave" places? I never know what to leave...

If you are in Richterswil, maybe you can get down to Pfaffikon? There is one near the lake, called Schlossgut, map below. They are a very friendly family and do fruits, milk, cheese, eggs, jam, wine and meats and probably some other things. Even showed us the cows being milked! Not exactly sure of the times. Open on Wednesday afternoons and Saturday mornings.

We sometimes go to the Haab's farmshop. It's just outside Waedenswil.



There's also a farm behind the football ground, up on Schoenegg (near the Schoenegg restaurant).

Both places are quite organised with weighing scales and prices clearly displayed.

The one near Schoenegg is quite pricey though.

There are others as well.

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

for you wädenswilers, richterswilers and other pfnüselküsterners there is a new veggie-coop-basket-service in the area:

http://www.waedichoerbli.ch/

you buy in to the genossenschaft for 300.-

then you get a yearly abonnement that gets you weekly produce baskets, seasonal, very local, organic.

it's a project started by ZHAW students, good people involved, this sort of thing needs all the support it can get.

But the basket subscription is 1300CHF part year for a small one per week for two people and 2600CHF for a family sized one.

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

sure enough, I forgot to mention that - but consider that it comes to about 15.-/person/week and it really isn't that expensive. The 300.- anteilsschein you get back when you leave.

i just enjoy the idea of giving my money directly to the producers, rather than migros/coop and their spanish agribusiness cohorts.

Do you use the service yourself?

What's the quality like?

In my post I should have also mentioned that the Saturday morning Waedenswil market has a few fruit/veg stalls from local farmers.

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

I'm afraid I'm too poor - or unable to save up the neccessary lump sum - pretty much living hand to mouth. Occasionally I'll treat myself to something nice from the farmers market, but I usually get the cheap stuff from denner. I know, it's kinda hypocritical considering my statement above, but these are economic necessities and idealized circumstances. If I could, I surely would. Also, waking up early on sat. morning and hoofing it down to the market isn't really my thing..

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.

Did you (or anyone else) order from there? How was the experience? Which one did you select?
