THE FUTURE BELONGS TO OUR LUPINES
WE ARE CLEARLY ON THE RIGHT TRACK
“Butterflies in the stomach” is more than just an enjoyable sensation for those who have the pleasure of sampling the fine and delicious products from the organic farm shop run by the Klein family. The surprising range of white sweet lupine and German vetchling is amazing. Available for decades, they include the aromatic lupine coffee in delicate flavours, chocolate and, more recently, falafels, tapas and bolognese sauce, all of them made from these ‘butterfly plants’. More and more consumers are discovering the benefits as the popularity grows.
They are becoming increasingly accepted as the swing and trend towards conscious, regional and sustainable eating gathers pace. Also, because Fritz and Iris Klein’s farm is among the lupine pioneers. Awarded the Bioland mark in 1985, the farm started cultivating lupine in 1994 as the original ingredient in its lupine coffee. Honoured by the ZDF television station in its 2022 film Plan B and numbered among the most innovative farms in Germany, the Klein family just keeps on developing new food products and specialities together with son Matthias. The products are occasionally singled out as super foods or simply praised for their delicious taste – but whatever the context, they are always organic. It’s simply a good feeling in the stomach – and also when shopping. Customers can order online, which ensures that the farm shop is open all hours.
Here’s to gut instinct!
