The Majlert family, based in Marcelin-Tadzinek, has been occupied with agriculture since as early as the 19th century. With subsequent generations, the soil has been cultivated using the newest methods to maintain the culture of Polish vegetables. Today the farm focuses on providing fresh ingredients of forgotten Polish vegetables, such as kale, the brown mustard plant, watercress, lemon dill, edible flowers (see picture) and more.
What you get in their small farm shop are fresh seasonal ingredients – for the list of current products check their website in the tab Produkty / Products. During your shopping the shelves will be stocked a couple of times by, mostly, members of the family. This is one of my favourite places to shop for greens, since, by supporting them, you also support the conservation of traditional vegetables using new technologies. Yum at reasonable prices (i.e. edible flowers for 2.50 PLN = ca. 0,50€)!
On July 1st in the afternoon there will be their next “Obiad in the field” (obiad being Polish lunch) that gathers the family members and people interested in fine dining. The price is 75 PLN / person – please book in advance.
The place can be reached by bus from bus stop Smugowa 01. Careful: if trying to find the place on a map, mention “Ludwik Majlert Gospodarstwo Rolne” and not only the address. The address will lead you to some train tracks and fields ;).
