Framework took part in an Austrian Agricultural Exposition to swap ideas and present the activities of our Burgenland Farmer Cluster...
WP3 Lead Gerid Hager from the International Institute of Systems Analysis and Framework members from project partner BOKU University Of Life Sciences, Vienna, attended Esterhazy Biofeldtage 2021.
The Biofeldtage runs organic field days that:
"...are a meeting point for professionals in the fields of organic and conventional agriculture, as well as for consumers interested in the sector.
Farmers can find out about the latest developments in land technology, plant cultivation, and animal husbandry, while consumers can trace the path of their food from field to plate and enjoy the wide variety of products available from regional organic farmers.
With a varied programme of fringe events, including presentations on machinery and techniques, an animal show, tips and tricks for organic gardeners, children’s events with their own dedicated zones, to name but a few, the Organic Field Days will be a sure-fire action-packed hit for young and old alike."
This year they report:
"More than 11,000 people (2018: approx. 8,000 people) - producers as well as consumers - met on the 6th and 7th August 2021 for the dialogue on organic agriculture at the Esterhazy organic estate in Donnerskirchen.
After intensive preparation time lasting several years, it is particularly pleased that the Biofeldtage 2021 could be organized in this form this year according to the motto "live instead of just virtual" with over 190 exhibitors (2018: 150) and thus successfully implemented machine demonstrations, variety show and a colorful supporting program.
As part of the two-day event, farms and interested consumers were invited to deepen and exchange their knowledge of organic farming on the approximately 70ha area. More than 160 event points as well as a unique cultural and variety show with a total of 180 show parcels inspired trade visitors and consumers. Under the motto: from the field to the plate there was an outdoor show kitchen, where knowledge was passed on by renowned chefs and bakers. Furthermore, there were live machine demonstrations with more than 100 agricultural machinery in practical use. The livestock breed show was heavily frequented: From "A" for Angus to "Z" for Zackelschaf. The varied and thematically coordinated children's program, in turn, inspired younger visitors."
