Production line for herbs

Perhaps the most unusual place
to grow potted herbs?

In 2021, Mayer supplied a production line for potted herbs consisting of a potting machine, seeder, vermiculite spreader and irrigation tunnel to our partner ECF Farmsystems. Their subsidiary, Frisch vom Dach GmbH, produces basil potted herbs on the roof of a REWE supermarket – in the middle of the urban environment of Wiesbaden/Erbenheim. Every day, up to 2,300 potted herbs are packed and dispatched from there for the store itself and the surrounding region. “Our vision is to supply people with sustainably produced food. That’s why I’m delighted to be able to help realize the dream of a self-producing supermarket here in Wiesbaden,” says Nicolas Leschke, founder and Managing Director of ECF Farmsystems.

This pilot project demonstrates the synergy effects of aquaponics and is to be implemented as a standard for other new buildings. Read more here: 

Our sales manager Alexander Bergmann was on site himself last week to discuss the next steps in pot handling to make work processes more effective. We would like to thank ECF Farmsystems for their long-standing partnership and trust and wish them continued success in realizing this vision.
