|Life on the farm|
Évkerék Ökotanya [Wheel of the Year Organic Farm], the name of our organic farm reflects our mission to follow the cycle of the seasons and live in harmony with nature. We find it especially important to produce organic and seasonal fruit and vegetables of the highest quality for our own family and many other local families.
The following three core values constitute our mission:
1. AMAP community-supported agriculture/ vegetable box system
We successfully operate our community-supported agriculture (CSA) venture, delivering boxes of organic vegetables grown in our organic vegetable gardens of 1.5 hectares weekly to those 65 families living in Szeged who entered into an agreement with us.
2. Seed saving
There are 160 varieties of organic vegetables grown on the farm, including special foreign varieties as well as Hungarian regional varieties. We also deal with seed saving (for personal needs only), the organisation of seed swaps and the establishment of a Hungarian seed network of growers.
3.Local community building
With the help of some families living in the neighbourhood, the so-called “Szeri Ökotanyák Szövetsége” [Association of Organic Farms of the Szer Region] was established in order to promote self-sufficiency in farming at a local level and live from what we produce with our own hands by means of using the tools of organic farming.
