I’m Hooked on Local Farms & Want to Know More 

If these locations are a bit off your route, there’s 2 websites (in German) to help find the location closest to you:

Selber Pflücken shows location of fields, farms and gardens where you can pick up products yourself. You will be amazed of the large choice of places!

Stadt Zuerich shares a selection of farmers around Zurich with larger choices (eggs, milk, honey, etc…. ) to collect yourself or to buy directly
