Camomile and coriander. Rosemary and marigold. Thyme and daisy. What a pleasant fragrance! With every inhale you let go of the daily hassles. The herb farms in Austria cultivate and process medicinal herbs and spices. The farmer is an expert. She can not only tell you the names of the different plants but also shows you how to make use of their properties. Put your relaxation above everything else. Rebalance with a cup of tea or indulge in a soothing face mask.
NATURAL REMEDIES ON THE FARM HERZOGHOF
The vegetable and berry garden on the farm “Herzoghof” seems to be set right at the foot of the rugged Leogang Mountains in Salzburg. In the furthest corner, you can find what Anita’s life revolves around: a small but mighty herb garden. “Flu corner”, “wound healing” or “mood boosters” - in neat letters, these terms are written on boards that stick out of the black soil between valerian, nasturtium, thyme and St John’s wort.

With passion and knowledge, they take care of the core of the farmer’s garden: the herb garden. Using these botanical treasures, they prepare tea, delicious herb-infused syrups or tangy spirits. Watch and learn! They show you how it’s done: petals or stems, leaves or roots. Torn or pick, cut or chop. Press, dry, brew ... Get inspired!
Natural Health - Natural Beauty
Hildegard of Bingen was convinced that natural herbal remedies could cure any disease. Though, there may not be a cure for everything, herbs provide great health benefits for the body and mind indeed, provided that they are applied correctly. A cup of tea tastes good, it can help you heal, calm down and soothe. A herbal pillow sends you sweet dreams. And a pressed-flower bar soap makes your hair shine like summer on a foggy autumn day.
On the Herb Farm in Austria
Close to nature on the farm
Sitting on the bench next to the farmhouse, you’re enjoying the first rays of sunshine and watch the hens scratching the ground. The farm’s cat has just returned from a nocturnal adventure and is now weaving between your legs. The kids are splitting their sides on the adjacent meadow. Later on, you will all go on a hike. But now you want nothing more than to sit here. Take another sip of your tea or your refreshing lemonade made of wild herbs that you’ve collected yourself. You have arrived.
Guided Herb Walks
Sage reduces menopausal symptoms. Spruce or fir tip syrup is a natural cough remedy. Nature - what a treasure chest! During a guided walk focusing on herbs, you will discover its secrets. Learn about the practical application of its treasures first-hand. The certified herb farmers and botanists have vast knowledge that combines old traditions and new findings. Just ask your host on the farm for her favourite recipes and custom blends!
A home-made herbal pillow is more than just a nice souvenir for the ones at home. Its stuffing invites you to smell, dream and reminisce. It’s great fun to collect and use the herbs. Last but not least, a herbal pillow from the farm is one of the nicest ways to wrap up a dose of health.
