Jucker Farm: the company
My name is Nik Fehlmann. I am responsible for the development of new products and I am quality controller at our food processing area at Jucker Farm. The company itself is owned by the two Jucker brothers, Martin and Beat.
Jucker Farm is a traditional farm that grows agricultural products such as cereals (like oat to name one), pumpkin, asparagus, chickpeas, berries and fruits. The latest product we put in the market is a plant-based milk alternative made from local oat. We are also famous for our pumpkin exhibition, events and restaurants in our farms.
In our small food production facilities, we transform these products into soups, jams, syrups and fruit purees.
Our production premises, located inside the old farm house, were built in compliance with the food standards.
We have about 14 to 16 people working in the production dept where the cooking process is carried out step by step by hand even in big amounts. Besides this, we have half-automatic filling machines and labelling machines.
Our products are sold both in our own stores in the farms as well as in retail and e-commerce.
The owners (the Jucker brothers) started their activity several years ago and became famous in Switzerland for growing their own pumpkins and displaying them in their farm.
Thanks to the combination of great food offers, events and their own farm shops they have grown a lot over the last years and have come a long way.
The challenge for Jucker Farm
Today the company runs 4 farms with shops, hosts events in each of them and has a food processing area for the production of various specialties prepared with our own raw materials. Therefore, we were looking for a multifunctional machine that would help us optimise our ever-growing demand.
We chose Firex because it offers a simple system which allows you to cook like you do “at home”, only in larger quantities. The unit with around 300L capacity was perfect for us, we find that the combination of cooking under pressure, roasting, cooking slowly ect.
Is very interesting and useful.
Our cooker can work in complete autonomy with no need of constant supervision thanks to the combination of mixer, temperature control probes and the Firex Touch Control control panel.
The advantages of Firex products: what the customers says
We would buy Firex equipment again for their excellent quality, fair prices and good customer service.
Cucimix helps us make our daily work more efficient because it allows us to cook of bigger amounts with no need of stirring thanks to the mixing-system. Holding temperature on precise level.
Cooking under pressure combined with stirring guarantees good mixing of the product therefore preventing it from burning and avoiding sticking to the bottom.
We have now been provided with a new mixer that increases the hygienic and food safety levels and we are quite satisfied with it.
