Bleckwenn, Garmissen, Germany 2022

Garmissen is located in the Hildesheim Börde, where the soil is particularly fertile. On such soils, sugar beet, grain, maize and today also soya are grown, for human as well as animal consumption. McDonald is a constant customer for the potatoes, because the potatoes that grow here reach the desired length for French fries. To everyone's surprise, there was an excellent grain harvest this year despite the drought. When you sell grain, it must not exceed a certain moisture content. If it is drier, the same amount of grain weighs less and the proceeds are thus lower. That is the case this year.
