    About Us

    Welcome to our farm Sunnhof in Oberhofen am Irrsee!

    ... where you’ll arrive as a guest and leave as a friend.

    Are you looking for peace and relaxation in an informal, family-like setting? A comfortable accommodation surrounded by a beautiful, natural scenery? Then you’ve found the right place!

    Our farm is set in a stunning and quiet location featuring a view of Lake Irrsee, right at the heart of the holiday destination “Mondseeland”.

    Genuine hospitality is our utmost priority! We organise barbecue and campfire evenings and love to get together and have a chat. It’s not a rare occasion that our guests become long-lasting friends and return on a regular basis.

    Parents can bask in the sun while the kids have fun in the swimming pool or on the playground. Guests can use a private changing cubicle at the public beach “Strandbad Laiter” at Lake Irrsee.

    For breakfast, we serve primarily products from our farm. On Sundays, there’s home-made cake.

    We are looking forward to welcoming you here, in our home!
    Yours, the Gschwendtner family

    Take some time off with a great view.

    For breakfast, we serve home-made bread, rolls from the bakery “Obauer”, fresh milk from a neighbouring farm, butter, home-made jam, yoghurt, eggs from our free-range hens and home-made granola.

    We produce fruit spirits and fruit brandy in our own distillery.

    Since 2021, we have a mobile henhouse for our chicken.

    The tractor can move the mobile henhouse to different spots on the meadow. This way, our hens can always feed on fresh grass. 20 roosters are part of the flock and make sure everything’s safe and all right.

    The henhouse has everything a hen’s heart could possibly desire. They can lay the eggs in nests of soft spelt husk. Every day, we collect the eggs manually. This way, we can establish and maintain a good connection with our animals which is often not the case in egg farms.

    Chicken do normally not move further than 50 metres from their barn. That means that the grass on the meadow around the barn would be eaten within a short time. And that’s where the mobile henhouse comes in. Since we move the henhouse to different places, we provide our chicken with fresh grass and the soil always has enough time to recover.

    In total, our chicken have 15,000 m² for use. In winter (the henhouse is parked on gravel), they can range freely and scratch or go to the sand baths and hay racks inside the barn.

    Another positive side effect of the mobile henhouse: No surface has to be sealed and grassland can be maintained. It was important for us to make the best out of the farm in an economic sense without enlarging it and to create something sustainable for the future. We also wanted to make sure that all activities along the value chain are performed in Austria.

    Our eggs are produced in compliance with the regulations set by Agrarmarkt Austria (AMA), the Austrian Market Organisation - a seal of quality. They can be purchased in our farm shop “GlüXegg” - the brand name literally translates to “happy eggs”.
