  • Description

    Description

    We moved out from the city to the Austrian Alps to set up a Regenerative farm with the philosophy of Permaculture. We are a film producer documenting the process, and a professional Chef who is fulfilling a dream to set up a "from Farm to Table Restaurant". We are learning by doing!!! Our main aim is to live from the farm by 2030, and share our experiences with anyone who wants to know!
