    About Us

    Our farm “Sturm-Archehof” is set in a beautiful natural landscape, only a 20 minutes’ walk from the village centre. You can start cross-country skiing on the 12 km trail that runs directly past our farm. There’s a small toboggan run next our farm. Children love to play and have fun in the snow there in the afternoon. They build snowmen and snow caves. An ice rink and a 2 km toboggan run are only a 10 minutes’ walk from our farm. There are places for ice climbing, snowshoeing, ... Immerse yourself in a winter wonderland!

    A winter like in the good old days. Moments of unrivalled beauty.

    Speeding down a street on the sledge at New Year’s Eve with the full moon glowing in the sky. Go skiing with the sun, a clear blue sky and mild temperatures as a backdrop. And finally, enjoy welcoming the new year with fireworks again.

    Winter’s over - it’s hard to say goodbye. But the memories fill your heart with joy.


    The artisan shop on our farm “Sturm-Archehof” is called “button-maker’s workshop”. Everything that’s for sale is handcrafted from natural materials on the farm.

    Since 1994, Hubert manufactures buttons. Slowly but steadily, he’s got familiar with this old type of craftsmanship.

    That’s why our artisan shop is called “button-maker’s workshop” (or “Knopfmacherstube” in German) - because it has all started with buttons.

    Although apart from buttons made of buckhorn, cow’s horn, wood, porcelain and stone, you can also purchase a range of other handcrafted souvenirs and products such as bowls, desk organisers, pens, books written by farmer Angelina Pucher, gift cards, felt slippers, ...

    Every piece of furniture that you can see in the holiday apartment was manufactured in button-maker Hubert Pucher’s workshop. Not only the bed made of Austrian stone pine or the frames but also the doors, the toilet-roll holders and the lampshades.

    Everything on our farm is handmade.

    That’s what we’re especially proud of.

    On our farm “Sturm-Archehof”, we keep animals that are threatened by extinction.

    Animals that have names, that are individuals and fellow creatures.

    Our sheep (a rare breed called “Braunes Bergschaf”) have beautiful names, for example Arthemisia, Athena, Anastasia, Marischka, Mariella, ...

    Tassilo, the billy goat, is the head of our herd. The goat breed “Tauernschecken” has become rare. We also have native goose (“Österreichische Landgans”) and chicken breeds (“Sulmtaler”), rare rabbits (“Blaue Wiener Kaninchen”) and turkeys (“Cröllwitzer Pute”), bees, fish, cats, dogs, ...

    Almost all of our animals are allowed to roam freely on our premises. An idyllic scenery that you can hardly see anywhere else.
