Farm Shop, Urdorf, Switzerland

It looks like a playhouse for children

It may not all be from the one farm, other farmers can sell here

Our friends live in a small village north-west of Zürich.  There are many farms nearby so Saturday morning we went with them to the local farm shop.

A sheet of paper covers the fresh food

Here is what they sell, you select your food and leave the money, it is an honour system.

Photos of the bread so you know what they have under the paper

The special bread our friends like to buy on weekends - Bauernzopf. It literally means "Farmer's Plait" - a typical breakfast bread

We found the bread similiar to brioche but not quite as rich.

I can taste it

Several potato varieties to choose from

Refrigerated area has milk, fruit and juices and even locally smoked meat

Elderflower Syrup

I would be their best customer if I lived here

The chickens were free ranging out the back

Across the road from the farm shop -very twee but adds to the atmosphere

What a pleasure shopping here, no crowds, absolutely fresh food from the local growers to your table.

    This would be perfect for your neighborhood in Binalong Bay, Roz! It would sell out in hours!

      The real deal not like some farmers markets where people buy from wholesalers and pretend it is their own produce.

    Reminds me of my own vege garden in New Zealand, grown without any ‘additives’, picked and cooked within minutes. Nothing better!
    What a wonderful trip you are having. Safe return to Brissie.
