In 1967 a small group of Biodynamic farmers started to deliver industrial vegetables such as carrots and beetroot to processors.
In 1971 the producer co-operative for Demeter field vegetables was founded (Erzeugergemeinschaft für Demeter-Feldgemüse e.V. (EGDF)) as the first co-operative of Demeter farmers worldwide.
The aims remain the same now as they were then: the pooling of goods on offer, and the collective delivery of products from Biodynamic production to the processing industry and the trade.
In 1992 the limited liability company, Demeter-Felderzeugnisse GmbH, was registered in order to develop and professionalise the marketing of products produced by members outside the region.
The producer co-operative has developed into a modern trade organisation which integrates production and distribution, and which with its Demeter and organic products, offers an ecological and sustainable alternative.
