Spring is the most beautiful time of the year at our farm. The birds are singing, nature is awakened from its winter slumber and the air has a lovely scent because the flowers blossom and the trees bring colour to our world. This season is the time for fertilizing meadows, ploughing fields, mending the fence, sowing crops and letting the cattle out of the stables.
Summer is the time when most of our time is spent mowing, harvesting grass and hay, but modern farming equipment makes our work a little bit easier. Due to some steep slopes we also have to do some of the before mentioned activities by hand. This is special; the work is done in a peaceful and quiet surrounding. Sometimes we enrich our experience with a song, loud cheer or just a word or two to make the work that more pleasant. Because our tourist farm is located on the top of a hill, it is never too hot due to a refreshing, cold summer breeze. The summer is the reason for many trips to our environment. The guests come from cities, valleys and from abroad to get a glimpse of our nature, peace and fresh air. We also treat them to a vide variety of homemade foods and drinks.
Autumn gives nature a special blend and wraps it in a delightful mix of colours. This is also the time when we harvest our crops, which were sown in the spring. Our guests are happy to give a helpful hand and pick the apples and other fruit from our orchards as well as pick potatoes, carrots, cabbage, beets and turnips from our fields. We extract 100% juice from our home-grown apples, which we offer to our guests all year long.
Winter is the time for pork and sausages from our pigs. The delicate smell of black pudding and sausages fill the air around the farm and the meat dryers are filled with different salamis, prosciuttos, pork necks and other dried meat products. Due to the high altitude on which the farm is located, winter also brings a lot of snow and it can create a true winter fairytale. The guests can ride with sleds, go ski touring, go cross-country skiing or just throw around some snowballs and make some snowmen.
