What do you adopt?

You adopt 7m² of a potato field from our farm in Crostwitz (Germany). The cultivation is certified as organic by the European Union as of 2014, and as Demeter as of 2022. The potato is an herbaceous plant (*Solanum tuberosum*) that originated in the Andes and began its triumph through Europe with the discovery of America. Today, we really wouldn’t want to miss out on having them in our kitchens. The Otolia variety comes from Germany, is very robust and a popular variety for organic potato cultivation. Its larger-than-average tubers set it apart from other potato varieties. We grow Otolia for you because, in addition to its excellent taste, it can be stored for a very long time. That way you can enjoy your harvest for longer! Harvest year after harvest year, we pay equal attention to care & variety in our selection. We invest a lot of effort in the cultivation and put all our love into the care of our potato tubers. The special varieties in our potato field are carefully selected, adapted to the location, and are simply delicious. We are guided by the many aspects of organic farming and rely on an optimal and natural cultivation strategy for our potatoes. This means that our potatoes grow and thrive free of synthetic chemical fertilisers and pesticides. We support natural growth by cultivating and fertilising according to the lunar cycle. The latter is done with lactic fermented red clover, herbs, grasses, as well as the natural manure of our own cows, the Glücksrinder (“lucky cows”). Potatoes are a great product and are one of the most sought-after crops in this country. We trust that the special effort we put into our potatoes is evident in the taste, and we look forward to your feedback. Each potato field produces an average of 10kg of mainly waxy Demeter organic potatoes per season.

What will you receive?

Each season we will send you a box with: __10 kg box of mainly waxy Demeter organic potatoes__ (loose in the box) * Otolia: tasty and above-average size, oval, juicy-yellow, predominantly waxy potato * Otolia is a great "all-purpose" potato and is perfect for everything the potato lover's heart desires - from mashed potatoes to fried potatoes, baked potatoes to the classic potato salad. It is very versatile and can be prepared peeled or washed with skin on * Organic cultivation, certified with the EU organic seal since 2014 * Biodynamic Farming, certified with the Demeter label since 2022 * Lovingly sorted by hand and packed in a cardboard box without plastic * Potatoes are a purely natural product that can vary in shape, colour, weight, or size from tuber to tuber * A kilo contains between 6 - 10 potatoes (in a box you will find between 60 and 100 pieces, depending on the size). * They are only roughly cleaned, not washed: the thin layer of soil/sand allows them to be stored for a longer period of time, which should be cool, dark and dry, for example in a clay pot Note: As the potato is a natural product and prepares for further propagation in spring, it forms small sprouts. You can simply flick these off by hand and the potato will go into winter dormancy again.

When will you receive it?

Potatoes are planted in spring and harvested in autumn. We therefore offer you delivery dates from November onwards. Thanks to the long shelf life of potatoes, we can supply you all year round.

Why should you adopt?
Know who, how and where your food is produced. Source your food in a conscious, direct and consistent manner.
Buying without intermediaries allows the producer to obtain better prices. This helps generate better jobs and social standards in rural areas.
When you adopt something, you allow the producer to ensure the sale at a fixed price and to produce on demand. This also avoids wasting food that is grown without being sold.
It supports producers who strive for environmentally friendly packaging and cultivation practices.
