  • Description


    We are a family of 6 people (we have 4 daughters who all have already made the experience of Workaway during their travels as well) and we live on an organic mountain farm in the middle of the Austrian Alps. We have milking cows and milking goats for making different kinds of raw-milk cheese, yoghurt and butter. Furthermore, we grow vegetables, fruits, grain and herbs for making a wide range of different product such as bred, tea, juice, jam, chutney, pesto,... We sell our cheese and some other products in our small farmshop, on the farmers' market and in the farmers' shop in the next town.

    We are engaged with the idea of "slow food" - regional, good quality and organic food. In general, we set a high value on self-sufficiency - we try to produce all the food which we need for our consumption ourselves.

    Through organisations like Workaway, we luckily got the chance to meet a lot of different people from all over the world and we are still very keen on hosting volunteers for some more cultural exchange.

    The surroundings of our farm give many opportunities for hiking in the mountains and we also have a dog which needs a lot of attention and walks :)
