Sönke Sweet Potatoes - Farmer by Passion

I am Sönke, an organic farmer from Bad Bevensen in the Lüneburg Heath in the North of Germany. In 2015, I took over our family farm.

I live and breathe agriculture and, together with my wife Anna, we discovered sweet potato for ourselves. Since 2016, we have been working hard to grow the sweet 'potato' on our own fields around our hometown Bad Bevensen.

We are very proud that we were able to market our first harvest in 2017 already in the regional retail trade. Our sweet potatoes are available in many supermarkets, organic stores, and zero-waste shops in the Lüneburg Heath area. Many markets are regularly supplied by us personally with goods - as long as the harvest of a year lasts.

Since 2018, we have been certified with the Bioland trademark, and we have been able to significantly increase the cultivation area and harvest quantities, so that the organic wholesale trade also distributes our sweet potatoes in the Lüneburg Heath, as well as the greater Bremen and Hamburg area. This allows even more customers to benefit from our organic sweet potatoes. You can find out exactly where to purchase the sweet potatoes here.

By the way, we are constantly working to expand our product portfolio. We keep you up to date on our social media channels.

Feel free to visit us!

This is what we stand for:


  • Regional cultivation in the Lüneburg Heath in Northern Germany

  • Ecological field management

  • Certification according to Bioland guidelines

  • Direct marketing in regional trade

  • Freshly harvested goods - from the region, for the region

Bio-Logical Farming



Since 2018, we, the Strampe Agrar GbR, have been members of the Bioland Association, the leading association for organic farming in Germany.

Our inspection body number is DE-ÖKO-006.

Together with Bioland, the goal of our daily work is to produce high-quality and healthy products, with a particular emphasis on regional marketing, especially in sweet potato production.

In accordance with Bioland guidelines, we aim to operate in harmony with nature and promote biodiversity and sustainability.

By choosing Bioland, we are also saying no to genetic engineering, chemical synthetic fertilizers, and pesticides because, as a Bioland farm, we operate and trade according to strict guidelines that go far beyond the legal minimum standard for organic food!

Our farmland, farm premises, and planted sweet potatoes undergo two inspections by an independent inspector, and the Bioland certification is obtained. For Sönke's sweet potatoes, this means they are 100% organic - and you can enjoy them with a clear conscience!




Best organic products
for our region


Together with many partners, we are part of the pilot project Öko-Modellregion Uelzen, a concept to support and promote organic farming in our region.


With over 50 organic farms and more than 3,600 hectares of organic land, the Öko-Modellregion Uelzen currently accounts for approximately 5% of the total land area. Together, we are working to increase this percentage.

Buying organic products from the Uelzen Heath region is encouraged, for example, by the new ÖKO-REGIONAL-REGAL, which was developed as part of the concept. You will surely encounter it soon in our region. We are proud to be part of it!
