Farm and farming
About Bolderhof farm and its history
Bolderhof farm was built in 1966. In 1996 Heinz Morgenegg, together with his wife Doris, took over the farm from his father. They started to farm organically straight away, and are very proud to be fully certified by the Swiss quality promiseBio Suisse.
So we are having our 20th anniversary in 2016. A lot has changed since the take over. We are not just a farming operation now, but have also become involved in tourism. We do not produce for a distributor any more, but sell our produce straight from our farm, through our shop on the premises or our online shop bionline.ch. This includes milk and meat from happy and healthy animals, as well as a great variety of seasonal vegetables (we also have ancient relict crops like Küttiger carrot, Pfälzer carrot, Chioggia beetroot). We deliver in some areas of Switzerland weekly ourselves, and the rest of the country is served by the courier service DPD.
We have also been able to enlarge our farm. Just across the border in Germany we have been able to lease some land, and we are now planning on how to best use these fields. Some water buffaloes have been moved there already.
