Care Farms in Austria
Relax in Nature and Recharge Your Batteries
Our care farms focus on helping people prevent and recover from burnout. They are an effective support for you to feel stronger and restore your vitality. The farmers on our certified care farms in Austria are trained and provide structured programmes that combine health care and farming-related activities.
In cooperation with the nine chambers of agriculture, the association Green Care Austria serves as a network who’s aim is to develop innovative services in the social sector and to put them into practice on working family farms in Austria.
The Art of Resting. Regain Your Health.
Well-being is a state of balance. A balance between exercise and relaxation, between mental efforts and light-hearted fun. Stress - in your job, your personal life or in the wake of an illness - can disrupt the healthy balance between effort and ease. Chronic stress will lead to health issues.
You will see: nature experiences on the farm will help you ground yourself in the present moment, restore your balance and recharge your batteries. The contact with animals is particularly beneficial. On the care farm, every corner of the farm plays a role in fostering your health and well-being.
FOREST BATHING, RECHARGING YOUR BATTERIES, GETTING INSPIRED
The organic farm Biohof Maurachgut is one of Austria’s first certified care farms. An oasis of tranquility, a secluded location, pristine nature, pure relaxation - that’s what guests find at the Maurachgut in Bad Hofgastein. In the nearby forest, they can recharge their batteries, get inspired and come up with new ideas.

Careful & safe
Your health is our utmost priority
The programme on our care farms in Austria comprises physical activities, a healthy diet, mental health care and much more. Group activities such as guided walks, painting, handicrafts, singing or farm work are a source of inspiration, strength and energy.
In structured conversations, you will gain new insights into healthy living with a focus on a healthy diet. Develop the necessary competencies to take better care of your health. This will encourage you to maintain a healthy lifestyle at home.
Self-awareness is the key to transformation. Have you ever been fully aware of the present moment and enjoyed the silence?
Wildlife watching and meditation on our care farms are great means to disconnect from the demands of your everyday life and help you find your inner peace. Practicing self-awareness will strengthen your personality and might even inspire you to break the mould. Would you like to discover the most energising places on the farm and in the surroundings? Perhaps you would like to find your very own favourite spot.
In any case, experiencing life on the farm, you will become aware of how a positive and healthy life can look like. On our care farms in Austria, mindfulness is more than just a word.
Can you think of a better spot to eat healthy than a farm, the place where our food comes from? Who else could know more about a healthy diet than a farmer? On our care farms in Austria, the farmers are experts on food and on how to prepare it. Many of them have a diploma in herbal medicine or are certified forest therapy guides. They are happy to share their experiences with you.
Have a good time restoring your vitality!
