600-Year-Old Traditional German Farm Becomes Biocyclic and Vegan ­− Vegconomist September 2022

The Gottschallerhof, a family-owned German farm that has been operating since 1435, has switched to biocyclic and vegan management methods.

The farm stopped rearing livestock in 2000, when farmer Nikodemus Gottschaller became uncomfortable with slaughtering animals. Five years ago, he stopped eating meat altogether and now has a mostly vegan diet. The farm currently produces mainly pumpkin products and grains.
