  • Description


    Hello :)
    We are Elisabeth and Reinhard and have 3 children named Johanna (6), Victoria (3) and Magdalena (8 months).
    For 2 years we live on this farm. The owners stopped farming with animals here years ago and especially Elisabeth enjoys chickens. We currently have 2 geese, 40 broiler chickens, 20 laying hens and a few other great chickens. This livestock should increase over the years :)
    Reinhard works as a construction machine technician.
