A YOUng FARMer's vision, Switzerland, Christoph Kappeler

In Switzerland the young farmer family, Christoph and Fabienne Kappeler with their two little kids, manage a leased farm in a mountain area, since January 2012. They mainly produce milk (30 LU’s) and the fodder for their cows on 20 ha of land. At the moment milk provides the main income of the family. The farm is managed according to organic guidelines.This video belongs to a series of 3 videos called “A YOUng FARMer’s vision”. The project aimed at producing three short films; each of them portrays a young farmer, giving an authentic and positive picture about their daily life and their visions. These were intiated and submitted for a students’ competition named “Engagier Dich!” (Get active!) carried out by the Mercator Foundation Switzerland.
