Farm stories: your hosts & the farm atmosphere

Farmers to our core!

Healthy, environmentally friendly and sustainable – that’s our philosophy, and that’s why we chose to be an organic farm. We attach great importance to approaching nature and animal husbandry in a mindful, responsible and sustainable manner.

Your host family

Hans-Peter, the farmer

… looks after the animals, the fields and woods – and is passionate about his work. One of his favourite occupations is “tinkering” with wood. He personally crafted various items of furniture and decorative features around the farm.

Hildegard, the farmer’s wife

… looks after the house, garden, flower beds – and our guests! She enjoys handicrafts and also loves pampering you, dear guests, with home-made cakes!

Johanna and Andreas

… are the two “grown-up” offspring, and both pitch in with the work.

If we ever have free time on our hands once the farm work is done, we enjoy hiking in our beautiful mountains.

Your new holiday home

Cosy atmosphere

When we built our farmhouse, we focussed strongly on environmentally-friendly aspects. It’s full of timber from our own woods, clay tiles and clay plaster, natural colours, solid wood furnishings and natural wood flooring, all of which combine to create a homely, feel-good atmosphere. We have wood-fired heating (using our own wood, processed in a fully automated wood chipper), and a photovoltaic system to supply us with the electricity we need.

Home-made and home-grown on the farm

We use the berries and fruits that grow on our farm to make jams and cordials. Our guests can enjoy fresh eggs from our hens, healthy garden herbs, vegetables (in season) and tasty organic potatoes in the autumn. We make teas and herbal salts with the herbs from our garden. Our busy bees produce various varieties of honey (blossom, alpine rose and honeydew). Hildegard, the farmer’s wife, loves crafts, crocheting and sewing (grain cushions, spelt cushions, hay hearts and much more besides). Browse through our crafts corner – you’ll be certain to find a special gift for yourself or a loved one!

Animal spirits!

As a “side-line”, we keep six cows and their calves, plus rabbits and hens. The farm also includes a potato field, a vegetable patch and a herb garden. Our beef is marketed under the Bio*Beef brand. We grow our crops and keep our animals along organic guidelines. Farmer Hans-Peter will be delighted to give you a tour of the farm and tell you more about how we live and work.
