    Most of the work is on the farm - depending of the season. We need help reparing fences for the animals, cutting the grass, making hay, bringing the animals onto their fields and/or helping in the garden with the vegetables. There are many things to get to know.

    We also want to renovate a little bit our swimming pool - so if you have some ideas ...

    Viel Arbeit auf einem Bauernhof - je nach Jahreszeit. Sei es Zäune reparieren, Holz schneiden, mähen und Heu machen, Kühe, Schweine oder Ziegen auf die Weide bringen oder im Gemüsegarten helfen, es gibt viel kennenzulernen!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    On the farm, we are Monika, Thomas, the mother of Thomas, and our son Johannes (28), who is here from time by time, specially in summer, but not always, because he studies in Innsbruck.

    We mostly work together, with the animals, on the fields or in the house - also sometimes the apartments have to be cleaned. What else? We have neighbors on the farm above and below our farm, and the next village is 4 km away. In the evenings or on the weekends you can make walks, hiking or go to the lake to swim ...
    Our guests can help us with all things and come with us in the spare time - or they can spot the surrounding on their own, everyone as they want ...

    Wir sind Monika und Thomas, die Eltern von Thomas leben auch am Hof. Auch unser Sohn Johannes (26 ) ist immer wieder da, vor allem im Sommer, aber nicht immer ....
    Wir arbeiten überall meist gemeinsam, mit den Tieren, auf den Wiesen oder im Haus - auch die Ferienwohnungen sind mal zu putzen. Was gibt es noch zu sagen? Die nächsten Nachbarn sind ein Hof weiter unten und oben, bis zum nächsten Dorf Afritz sind es 4 km. Abends oder am Wochenende gibts die Möglichkeit für Spaziergänge, Wandern, Baden im Afritzer See ....
    Unsere Gäste können überall mithelfen und auch gern abends mitkommen - oder alleine unterwegs sein und die Umgebung erkunden, wie jeder möchte.
