Farm to table – fresh & cool

Experience nature at our restaurant. We create dishes and drinks from everything that’s growing and thriving at our organic farm. Enjoy organic food directly from our pastures and gardens in the middle of nature, featuring live cooking events and a large outside seating area next to our herb garden.

According to, the Öko-Essbar is likely the most sustainable restaurant in the country.

We grow and produce everything ourselves – bread, rolls and pastries at our farm bakery, flour at our grain mill, homemade pasta at our pasta manufactory, vegetables and herbs at our own herb gardens and veggie patches, meat and sausages from free range animals, raised and processed on our own farm.

Table reservations are currenlty not possible.

Meat from animals bred, raised and processed by us

100% of our meat comes from animals we raise ourselves at the Edible Zoo. They live and are cared for outside all year round at our organic farm, and they run around and graze right where the restaurant is situated.

At our new meat manufactory, we process the meat ourselves to create sublime meats, cuts and sausages, all of which you can taste at our Öko-Essbar.

You can now also buy some of our delicious Edible Zoo delicacies at our online shop and have them delivered to your home.
