We, that is Micha, Elisabeth and Kids ( Twin Girls born 2015, 2 boys born 2016 and 2018) plus Loki and Tess our herding dogs live on a rented farm in an area called Waldviertel in Lower Austria. We breed Texas Longhorn Cattle as first breeder in Austria which is quite challenging, as this includes quite a lot of visitors that have never seen this cattle race around here, quite a lot of intressted visitors that need a lot of information and lots. We also do pastured poultry in special "chicken tractors" that move daily and also started that type of project as first in Austria. Although we are not certified we carry the organic way in our hearts. No chemical fertilzer, hormones or antibiotics go into our animals. Micha is a former apprentice of Polyface Farms (Joel Salatin). We run a 24/7 shop with 55+ farmers that supply the area with products. Elisabeth works with Homeopathie on our animals and family a lot. We like to cook seasonal and regional incredients in international and local dishes. But we also like ordering Pizza every once in a while. ;-)

We speak English quite fluently and of course German. ;-) . We live in an interessting area and can give you ideas of what can be done around here besides being on the farm. We would take you with us when we do family trips.
We do quite some projects on our farm. So help is always needed and appreciated in areas like: Moving chickens out to pasture, moving chicken pens daily, check cows in barn and pasture, help in the garden (new ideas and inputs are highly appreciated), help with the kids and show them more about whats going on on a farm every day, house work, social networking on facebook and instagram, help building things here and there - we also have dogs that need some company, walking and playing ;-)
