Solawi Halde, a community-based cooperative in Altendorf on Lake Zurich, has been working as a veganic operation since it started in 2018. On 60 acres, the small farm grows various vegetables, berries, fruit trees and flowers through manual labour. Heavy machinery and tractors are deliberately avoided to give the soil as much care as possible.
The farm works according to the principles of market gardening. Solawi Halde sells its vegetables through vegetable subscriptions, self-harvesting passes, farm shops, online shops, and restaurant sales.
The farm is preparing for biocyclic vegan certification.
