  • Description

    Description

    On our organic farm we work extensively, there are Lamas, Alpacas, gardening, vineyard and field work.

    Professionally we work with renewable raw materials for the production of food, cosmetics and building materials.
    On the farm we therefore often do workshops on how to use plants to cover the basic human needs of eating, building and clothing. Every 1-2 years a special textile project takes place where we produce yarns with old equipment, directly from the plants.

    The farm is in the Stelvio National Park with a magnificent view and great silence.

    Considering the climate crisis and the current economy, we want to build a better life in the seclusion, work with our hands again and cover essential basic needs ourselves
