    About Us

    Well-being - on a carefully maintained mountain farm - away from all the hustle and bustle - for young and old alike
    Let us pamper you with our farm's home-grown and home-made products with our "grandmother's style" full board.
    Enjoy relaxing massages from our daughter Michaela - a trained masseuse.
    On our hills, enjoy sack sledding, tobogganing, building snowmen, playing with Balou in the snow ... Come home to our cosy farmhouse parlour and a glass of mulled cider by the warm tiled stove - what more could a heart desire?
    All animals are now comfortably installed in the stables. They want to be fed, milked and stroked. Our ponies also love to be groomed and led around. Helping in the barn, milking certification, tractor rides, pony rides, a play cabin, lots of space to romp and play ... make your holiday an experience also in the winter.

    For the loved ones at home, there are liqueurs, schnapps, honey or fresh trout to take home with you.

    Here you will find all the animals that belong on a farm.

    Loving, respectful treatment of the animals is very important to us. This is certainly one reason why our animals are peacefully calm and trusting. As soon as the season begins, our dairy cows are let into the meadows around our farmyard. The heifers are out to pasture all summer. Our Highland cattle that live outdoors all year round are also very curious. Our guests can visit the "petting animals" at any time, and also in the stables. We only have two pigs during the summer and our sheep stays with our neighbour. Our ducks and chickens are not for petting, but nevertheless just as interesting.
    Not to be forgotten are the cats and our darling Bernese mountain dog, Balou. He loves children more than anything else and always has to be where the action is.
    In order not to discriminate against Balou - he's not allowed in the house - and also for additional reasons, we do not permit new guest dogs any more!
