Germany: It all ends up in the sauerkraut factory

Between Euenheim and Elsig the harvest of white cabbage is almost fully automated. German farmers, working on behalf of the firm Stollenwerk in Merzenich, are aided by a harvest machine that works the fields going 3 kilometres an hour.

It is well known that the Germans like their sauerkraut. This isn’t surprising, considering the vast expanse of fields covered with white cabbage. Almost all of the crop ends up in the neighbouring sauerkraut factory in Düren-Merzenich. After being processed there, they will head for shelves.

Right now, harvesters are clearing about 4 hectares a day. If the weather allows it, the entire Euenheim field could be clear in a week. Forecast snow isn’t likely to hit the area, so prospects are good in the German sauerkraut industry.
