Organic – Our Way of Life
Rest & Recharge: Body, Mind and Soul – ORGANIC life.
Our working farm has a total of 50 ha forest area, 17 ha pastures, and a total of 115 ha. Our meadows are mowed twice a year to produce our own organic hay for our cattle. Our cows are milked twice per day. We use the milk produce to further process into yoghurt and curd cheese. Since 2020 we have further been producing cheese, the Kalsertaler Cheese and Camembert. All surplus milk is picked up on the second day for further processing by the Tirol-Milch company.
During summer, our cows spend the hot summer months up at the "Alm" alpine hut in the Dorfertal. The lush alpine meadows with natural herbs, milder climate, and freedom to roam in safety are the secrets to our excellent milk and milk produce.
The young cattle enjoy the alpine meadows at the Teischnitztal at the foot of the Großglockner mountain.
Our resident pigs stay at home at the Taurer stables during summer. They always delight at visits from all our young guests and even more when they are being fed by them. During winter, the cows & calves return back to the stables. There is plenty of work to ensure our animals are cared for.
Older children can lend us a helping hand to learn more about farm work. Simply ask farmer Hans or farmer Martin and they will be delighted to show you around.
