Many tasty dishes can be conjured up from local Swiss grains, vegetables, and fruit. It’s the season to enjoy fresh, crisp salads, juicy spring vegetables, and sweet fruits.

In a recent viral story, we meet a former engineer in telecommunications and oil & gas who recently left his corporate job in Malaysia but has since found success managing his own vegetable farm in Switzerland.

According to Berita Harian, Eryzal Zainal, a 41-year-old Malaysian originally from Ipoh, Perak, resides in Sorens. Alongside his Hungarian wife, Zsuzsanna, 40, and their 5-year-old daughter, Inez, they have been living in Switzerland since 2017.

After quitting his corporate job in 2014, he focused on conservation projects in Malaysia. Then, he and his wife travelled the world, volunteering on farms in different countries.

Seeking a deeper connection to nature, their journey began with a simple desire to understand the source of their food, evolving into a passion for sustainable farming.

Eryzal’s venture into agriculture started with a small plot beside his home, gradually expanding with the assistance of supportive neighbors.

Previously, he worked odd jobs in the village where he now lives. However, after being offered land for agricultural use, he made the decision to become a full-time farmer.

He revealed how they used whatever they had lying around, but as time went on, they upgraded their farming gear, and now they’re running the veggie plot with a little help from a two-wheeled tractor.

“With things the way they are now, we’re pulling in about 100 heads of different salad types and colours each week, along with 20kg of mixed salad, 50kg of red radishes, and 70kg of tomatoes. We sell the lot at the market.”

Eryzal and his wife regularly sell their produce at local markets each week, where they connect with customers who appreciate sustainable agriculture.

For Eryzal, farming means more than just growing crops. It’s about building friendships within the community, experiencing the joy of seeing his family enjoy the harvest, and learning valuable lessons in patience and resilience from nature.
