German farmers egged on

A West German holiday club is offering farmers a weekend away from the farm -- for 300 eggs or 130 pounds of apples per person. Visitors can also pay in potatoes, hay, or oats, says the company, Ferienclub L"uneburger Heide.

The scheme is designed to attract farmers in the off-season and promises them a four-course meal, breakfast, and a Saturday night stay at the club in north Germany's L"uneburg moor area.

A spokesman said the plan appeared to be catching on with farmers and that the produce was used to feed the club's 60 horses -- and some of the vacationers.
