Jaglea Family Farm, Romania
"Reinventing ecological peasant farming at the crossroad of tradition and innovation"

This organic farm, located near Sibiu in the Carpatians, illustrates a new kind of farm in Romania, where tradition and innovation meet to form an emerging "new peasantry". The Jaglea family practice a low-input, largely manual agriculture, which is certified organic and which seeks way to be economically, socially and environmentally sustainable. They process and market all their products directly and took part in the creation of the first organic producers’ cooperative shop in Romania. One obstacle that they face in seeking to expand their activity is gaining access to more land in the vicinity of the farm.
