Hand-crafted vegetable diversity
GRAND GARDEN is part of GRAND FARM, an organic research and demonstration farm of the Grand family in Absdorf, Lower Austria.
In the summer of 2019, we started to build this special garden here, thus reviving an almost lost European tradition from the 19th century. We work according to the concept of “Market Gardening”. The concept is based on the efficient use of small areas of land using manual labour and simply mechanised equipment – with the aim of achieving high yields per hectare and marketing a wide variety of high-quality organic vegetables directly.
We call this “hand-crafted vegetable diversity”. It is not about constantly expanding the size of the farm to produce more and remain competitive. On the contrary: the aim is to optimise the cultivation of these small areas in such a way that their maximum possible productivity can be achieved naturally.
