Ecologically. Regional. Sustainable: This is the motto of the first Hessian BioTage from September 10th to 19th.

With a new name, the days of action will take place across Hesse for the first time and invite you to experience the diverse range of organic and regional products with all your senses. Producers and processors open the gates of their businesses to the public and show what organic farming means in practice and how regional foods are made.

Events all over Hessen

A colorful and diverse program of events awaits visitors, inviting them to participate. From a day on the farm to cooking and baking workshops to cycling tours, there is a lot of variety on offer for young and old. For example, visitors can not only see what species-appropriate animal husbandry looks like or how cheese is made from milk. The Hessian BioTage also offers the opportunity to ask farmers directly questions that concern you as a consumer. The complete program of events is available at https://www.oekomodellregionen-hessen.de/veranstaltungen/hessische-biotage retrievable.

Visitors to Babenhausen can go behind the scenes of an organic farm: The Rottstedt organic farm invites you to a guided tour of its Kurogehnen farm, dates are planned for September 11th, 15th and 19th.

There is also a guided tour in the Hoxhohl vegetable garden in Modautal – from A for Asian salad to Z for sugar loaf there is a wide variety in Vivian Glover’s market garden.

On September 17th, we go to the field. The solidarity agriculture in Rüsselsheim, the “Bio SoLaWi Auf dem Acker eV”, invites you here.

The bread oven at Hofgut Oberfeld will be heated up on September 18th to participate. There is a workshop on bread here. Anyone can take part, the ingredients are brought along or provided for spontaneous people.

About the eco-model regions

The Hessian model regions are looking for ways to meet the increasing demand for organically produced food more from local agriculture and to raise consumer awareness of regional cycles and organically produced food. They are part of the Hessian eco-action plan and are the point of contact for farmers, regional producers, processors and retailers.
