A trained farmer and exponent of the biodynamic method, David Jacobsen, together with his large team, manages the spectacularly situated Rheinau Estate “where the Rhine curves to embrace the landscape” in the very north of the canton of Zurich. David heads the Fine Vegetables Department and is responsible for marketing Rheinau Estate products. Anyone who shops in Zurich in a nutritionally and environmentally conscious manner has likely encountered one of the products he helps create. Because holistic thinking is applied at the Rheinau Estate, landscape development and research are part of everyday life. This naturally predestines David Jacobsen to be a great source of information at one of our down-to-earth talks.
