Before entering politics, Häusling managed his family's 75 hectare organic farm near Kassel.[2] He was elected to the Landtag of Hesse in 2003, but he failed to retain his seat at the following election in 2008. Although he successfully stood at the subsequent early election in 2009, Häusling resigned his seat shortly afterwards when he was elected to the European Parliament.[3]
