Guillaume and Stéphanie Visit an Organic Farm

Yesterday, Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie were in Hupperdange to visit the organic farm Schanck-Haff, which is run by Jos and Marlene Schanck and their son Alexander. The Hereditary Grand Ducal couple attended at the invitation of Bio-Lëtzebuerg and were accompanied by Fernand Etgen, the Minister of Agriculture, Viticulture and Consumer Protection.

Jos Schanck is the president of Bio-Lëtzebuerg, and he and his family have been active in supported organic farming activities in Luxembourg since 1980. The farm Schanck-Haff is a member of APFAPL (Association pour la promotion des fermes d’accueil et pédagogiques au Grand-Duché de Luxembourg) or the Association for the Promotion of Host Farms Teaching in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, which aims to educate people in Luxembourg, including school groups, about local agriculture.
