The simple pleasures in nature…
A farm holiday with animals: A hit with young and old!
A stay on a farm with animals is a unique holiday experience! Many domestic and farm animals romp around in our barn – cows, hens, horses and donkeys, and we sometimes even have rabbits hopping around our outdoor enclosure. Our pet dog and cats have long since become much-loved family members. And of course your pet is very welcome here with prior arrangement! Farmer Herbert looks after our animal residents with great care. He will be pleased to introduce you to our colourful animal menagerie or show the children how to handle the animals.
Spend a farm holiday with our animals – it will be a memorable experience!
Living on a farm in South Tyrol
We are an ark farm
As an ark farm, we give a home to endangered animal breeds and ensure their survival. It is not only wild animals that are threatened with extinction – there are also many, mainly older breeds of domestic and farm animals that are under threat. If a breed that has been at home here for centuries were to disappear, then we would lose not only a valuable inheritance, but also a piece of living cultural history. As an ark farm we make an important contribution to the preservation of biodiversity – and you can get to know species such as the Pustertaler Sprinzen, a rare breed of cattle that you have probably never met before. Come and stay on our farm and be amazed by our animals!
Mountain biking: Saddle up!
Our young farmer Andreas is a qualified cycling guide. He can take you on guided rides and show you the best trails in the Pustertal valley; he also provides top-level cycle servicing directly at the farm.
