The StadtFarm is the Berlin-Lichtenberg Company of the Year 2021 in the category “Innovation and creative approaches to solutions in the context of the challenges of the pandemic”. This award means a lot to the StadtFarm, especially in these (for everyone) difficult past two years where one challenge followed the next. With creativity and agility, the StadtFarm adapted its business model to the changes in the market and was thus able – accompanied by BE Solutions – to find a way to successfully navigate through the pandemic. The concept of AquaTerraPonik is and was constantly continued and StadtFarm customers were also able to enjoy the local and sustainable products throughout the whole pandemic. The entire StadtFarm team is very proud of the award, which recognises and rewards the commitment and hard work put in during this time! You can read more about the award ceremony in this article from the Lichtenberg Business Portal (German article).
As advisors to the StadtFarm, we set an impulse during the summer which is already bearing fruit. The StadtFarm is developing its business model further and will emphasise its social focus even more in the near future. From October onwards, the value chains and the community of the StadtFarm will be even more strongly integrated into the business model: The StadtFarm is oriented towards the principles of solidarity-based agriculture (Solawi) and is also taking a closer look at its educational offerings. From October onwards, the Solawi community can be involved in the processes and cultivation planning of the StadtFarm and vegetable yields will be shared among the members. However, customers can still order the sustainably and locally produced fish in subscription boxes or visit the farm shop. More information about the new concept can be found on the StadtFarm’s website, Facebook or Instagram profile.
