Vending Machine Dispenses Urban Farm Eggs

Hamburg urban farm Hühnerhof der Motte has existed for almost 30 years. In an attempt to find new ways to sell their eggs to customers the farmers came up with a simple and very effective idea — a vending machine.

The public Egg-o-Mat — a streetside vending machine that provides 24/7 fresh eggs from their free-range chickens — supplies the local community. For just €2 you get six bio quality eggs without depending on shopping hours any more.

Amongst other sustainable ideas like Rent a Huhn — a chicken rental project — this initiative shows that inhabitants of big cities no longer have to miss out on good quality organic products that meet their own special needs.
