Unconventional pig farming has failed. After 9 years, the farmer closes production

Niekonwencjonalny chów trzody nie powiódł się. Po 9 latach rolnik zamyka produkcję

The first distinguishing feature of the farm was free-range breeding of pigs, which is rare today. An old, unused orchard was designated for this purpose. The activity was also characterized by an unusual approach to the method of meat distribution. After slaughter, it was immediately portioned and sent to recipients via a courier company.

Unconventional breeding did not work in practice

However, it turns out that the unusual approach to pork production did not allow the company to survive market perturbations. As reported by Agrarheute Berliner Tagesspieleg, the company is currently insolvent, and on March 20 this year, the court in Potsdam commenced bankruptcy proceedings. The company's management does not want to comment on the reasons for its disastrous financial situation.

However, we know that the history of the company's problems goes back many years. Potsdamer Sauenhain was founded in 2015 and was intended to be a model example of pig breeding in conditions of increased welfare. However, already in 2019 it was said that the company had serious financial problems. To save the project, it was broadcast

500 shares worth EUR 200 each. As it turned out, this did not solve the company's problems.

The history of Potsdamer Sauenhain

As reported by Agrarheute, the company's founder Clemens Stromeyer resigned from his job as a geographer in 2015 and, together with his partner, founded a pig farm in a former apple orchard. The entrepreneur immediately focused on distribution via an online store.

However, the company did not have an ecological certificate. One reason for this was expensive organic feed. Pigs were slaughtered at a high slaughter weight (approx. 150 kg), and their growth lasted as long as a year. The production cycle was therefore more than twice as long as in conventional breeding. This certainly had an impact on the profitability of breeding and perhaps it was one of the reasons for the failure of the project.
