This August 1, do it like the Swiss and book yourself a seat at a farmer’s brunch.
For those who live in the vicinity of Zürich, we would like to recommend a farm called Schlattgut. Located in sunny Herrliberg above Lake Zürich, this family run farm believes in the principles of sustainable farming. Alas, the Ledergerber family and their team operate a certified organic farm under the IP-SUISSE label.
Are you ready to meet the Schlattgut team?
The Schlattgut is considered a medium sized farm in Switzerland. There are a total of 40 cows, 35 cattle and calves, 160 hens and two donkeys. Oh, and don’t forget Maiko, the loyal farm dog! Of course, the Schlattgut has a lot of human helpers, too. They need all the help they can get because Schlattgut is the official supplier for the finest Swiss hotels. As part of The Living Circle umbrella, the Ledergerbers are in charge of producing whatever fresh products their partner hotels and restaurants require.
What’s included in the Farmer’s Brunch?
Be it bread from their own wheat, farm fresh eggs or dairy products: this August 1, we will all be able to taste the finest organic products as part of the Schlattgut Farmer’s Brunch. Here is a full rundown of what will be served on the all-inclusive buffet:
– Rösti potatoes
– Eggs sunny side up
– Ham and bacon
– Various breads, including the traditional Sunday “Zopf”
– Butter, homemade jams
– Cheese and deli meats
– Yogurts and Müesli
– Milk and milk shakes
– Apple juice
– (Wine, Prosecco, beer and sodas at an additional charge.)
While the adults are still munching away, the kids can run off into the hay or they can visit with the farm animals. Meanwhile, the Plauschörgeler vom Sunneufer trio will entertain us with typical Swiss folk music…
