SlowFood-CE project - Kecskemét field research

At present she runs her farm on an 1200-négyszögöl (1 négyszögöl = 3,57 sq m) area. All sorts of vegetables are to be found in her garden. She keeps hens which can scratch about freely. In her childhood the family run a 28-hold (1 hold = 0,57 hectares) farm, thus the children learned everything about farming. As so many others they, too, had a hard life. At that time it was a generally held opinion that a girl is allowed to get married only if she can bake bread. In those days children were born with the assistance of a midwife. At the beginning they started farming with her husband on a piece of land taken on lease. Later they worked on their own land, they had livestock, grew vegetables and they sold the produce on the market.

Slow Food Central Europe

Slow Food-CE is a transnational cooperation project that seeks to improve the capacities of local, public and private actors in order to safeguard and give value to their gastronomic cultural heritage as part of a vision that integrates economic, environmental and social sustainability. The project intends to create a transferable model that can give traditional foods their true value, through knowledge of their producers, plant varieties, animal breeds, traditional processing techniques, folklore, cultural landscape, and enhance the common food heritage of Central Europe, leading to a new alliance between five cities: Venice, Dubrovnik, Brno, Kecskemét and Krakow.
