Small farm shops for direct sale could promote sustainable, local food consumption and production

Type of project
  • Systemic changes

Due to the neoliberal industrialisation of agriculture, smaller farms have to close down. They are replaced by industrial agricultural production. The region of this project is characterised by agriculture and old half-timbered buildings. The modern relocated farm is located at the entrance of a small Swabian village.

The Milk House contributes to the rescue of this farm. Milk and other products, which are produced on the farm are sold directly to local residents. The house consists of a wooden framework, which corresponds to the local tradition of craftsmanship and was covered with cheap corrugated sheets, as they are used on the modern farm.

The Milk House mediates between the traditional village and the modern relocated farm built in the 1970s. It was realised with a very small budget. Additional Milk Houses could support even more local farmers and promote sustainable, local food consumption and production.
