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.
