  • Description


    We are Thomas (1983) Judith (1987) Klara (2014) and Flora (2016).
    We live on a hill with alltogether around 13 hectar organically farmed land. This includes our neighbourfarm and an old farm which we rent in the moment. parts of the land have not been farmed for the last years, which creates a biotop for birds and wild animals. In this way we host a fox in the forest, a lot of birds in the trees including huntingbirds and you can watch rabits, deer and woodpeckers from our window.

    Our main interest in life is to live close to nature and to stay in a truthful connection to other people.
    Our aim is to build up an appropriate environment for human, plants and animals, which is worth to live in.

    In the moment we grow lots of vegetables and all over we have different fruit- and nuttrees.
    Our newest members of the Farm is Martina with her two horses, who lives in the oldest part of the farmbuildings. Beside them there are five elegant cat ladys and a cock with his chickens living on our place surrondet by the hills and forests of south-east styria, a very mild and green corner of austria.

    We ourselve spend also lots of time traveling and learning from other farms and communitys, where we get lots of inspiration about permaculture, the connection between human and animals as well as to use nonviolent communication between humans.

    You are invited to visit us, learn from us and help us in a variety of tasks, also children are very welcome!

    Hope to see you someday,
    Judith and Thomas

    Around the cycle of the year, there are many different tasks where you can help and work with us. We are happy to include you concerning your interrests and wishes. A clear focus of our farm is the work with trees (fruit trees, woodmaking,....) but also the animals and the vegetables needs attention.
    Thomas wants to build a mongolian yourt, where also lots of work is to be done.
    But we are also happy about help in the kitchen and around the daily tasks in the household and garden.
    Soon we are going to make apple and grape juice.
