Owner of Kiltsimäe organic farm
Margus Lille became a farmer for a very simple reason – he wanted a cleaner living environment for his family. So, they moved to live in the country in 2001, and thus had to find a suitable activity to bring bread to the table. Margus decided in favor of growing organic vegetables because twenty years ago he saw a market deficit in this area.
Today, the hard work has paid off, and the vegetables of the Kiltsimäe organic farm are on sale in almost all major retail chains. Also, Margus has actively contributed to the development of organic farming in Estonia. As a result of his input, more than half of Rimi’s stores have “Talu toidab” (The Farm Feeds) counters where you can get local organic and farm produce.
