Our cooperative

Cooperation is the origin of our cooperative: farmers and market gardeners set up a cooperative together in order to make use of agricultural caretakers in the event of the farmer’s or market gardener’s incapacity for work. The cooperative ABflexkracht still exists today by and for members, with the main aim of offering its members and clients access to various services in the field of business continuity, flexible labour and knowledge.

The power of the cooperative

The ABflexkracht cooperative has a rich history. In the early 20th century, farmers in the same street started informal arrangements to look after each other’s livestock or land in case of incapacity for work. These informal arrangements grew into more formal agreements. In the 1960s, the first agricultural caretaking cooperative was formed, with farmers no longer just helping each other, but hiring staff. The professional farm help or agricultural caretaker was born.
