    Nature all around - Mühlviertel region

    Green as far as the eye can see! Our farm is set adjacent to the "European Green Belt", not far from the Lipno reservoir (swimming & water sports).

    About Us

    Would you like to take some time off, relax, unwind, ground yourself and find inner peace?

    At our farm Biberhof, your body and soul will find the oasis of peace and comfort that you’ve been longing for! Let yourself in for the gifts of nature while forest bathing or walking through the herb garden. Enjoy the colours, take in the scent and feel the healing effect of relaxation. Take some time to enjoy a cup of tea from the herb garden, perhaps reading a book, with the sweet smell of the beehive in the bee parlour.

    The Biberhof, run by the Friesenecker family, has been adhering to organic farming principles since 1995. It is nestled in the rolling hills of the Mühlviertel region at 800 metres above sea level, north of Freistadt on the edge of the European Green Belt.

    The Biberhof - a diverse organic farm

    The farm is run by us, Leo and Franziska Friesenecker, together with our children. Due to our personal interests and inner conviction that natural farming can only work by ensuring a well-balanced diversity, a set of economic activities and organic food products have been developed at our farm Biberhof in recent years.

    The products from Biberhof are therefore as diverse as nature itself. Our agricultural activities are:

    • the cultivation of various herbs,
    • the cultivation and processing of spelt, emmer and naked oats,
    • the cultivation of various oilseeds such as hemp, flax and mustard,
    • which are pressed into edible oil directly on the farm,
    • as well as the cultivation of strawberries that consumers can harvest themselves,
    • the cultivation of potatoes that consumers can dig themselves and
    • the production of mustards in various flavours. The now well-known and popular "farmer's caviar" was created by us and is produced on the farm.

    Sustainability in practice - 100% organic since 1995 - natural food from Biberhof

    Our greatest endeavour is to work in a family friendly and environmentally friendly way, so that not only we can enjoy the gifts of nature, but also our children can enjoy the precious fruits of the Earth.

    • Pick and smell - herbs from the garden to pick yourself
