Slovenians buying more produce directly from farmers
There was an increase in the sales of fruits and vegetables but a drop in poultry and eggs.
The sales of garden vegetables went up by 21% compared to 2014. The revenue generated in potato sales, on the other hand, was 24% lower than the year before due to lower prices and the fact that less potatoes had been sold.
The revenue from fruits was 16% higher year-on-year. While farmers made more with the sales of apples, pears, peaches and walnuts, there was a drop in the revenue from cherries and strawberries.
The sales of poultry and eggs, on the other hand, dropped in 2015 over 2014 despite higher prices. Revenue from milk and dairy was however higher than in 2014.
