Pet the Goats or Pitch Right In
Doing nothing is an important part of a good holiday. But after a while, lounging in the hammock and watching the clouds go by gets boring.
If you love broadening your horizon and getting to know a different way of life during the most delightful time of the year, a farm holiday is the right choice. On a lot of family farms in Lower Austria, you’re welcome to lend the farmers a hand. You’ll learn something new and gain interesting insights. You’ll get outside, get moving and get some fresh, healthy air.
And later on, you’ll take home unforgettable memories.
Healthier with Every Breath You Take
You’ve probably read or heard that before: The air in a barn is healthy. It’s no coincidence that farm kids have fewer allergies than kids who have grown up in the city. This is not despite but rather because of the fact that they dig in the ground and stroke every animal they see. It’s because they cuddle with the dog or the kitten that has just crawled out from the pile of hay. In fact, the large amount of good bacteria has a positive effect on the human body. What does that mean for you and your family? Well, it means that apart from tasty food, fun and a good night’s sleep, there’s one more reason for spending your holiday on a farm: your health.
For Amateur Winemakers & Grape Snackers
Winemaking is more than science. It’s an art. Poetry in a bottle. From planting to harvest to bottle - making wine is a long, slow process that involves a lot of work. It also involves hopes and worries. Is it going to hail? How much sunlight will the vines receive this summer? Winegrowers live and work with the seasons. There’s always some work to be done. The first taste of this year’s wine will tell if the harvest was good. A vineyard stay in Lower Austria allows you to relax in the vineyard-covered countryside, but also to cycle, walk and enjoy the silence. You will gain interesting insights into the production, the challenges and the techniques involved in winemaking. And the annual grape harvest! A once-in-a-lifetime experience! Would you like to take care of your “own” grapevine, press and craft your “personal” wine? Everything’s possible.
Simply ask your hosts on the vineyard.
For Herbalists & Pastry Chefs
After the kids have collected the eggs from the henhouse, the farmer shows you how she makes a fluffy pancake. Perhaps you’d like to bake bread together? There’s a wood-fired stove in the garden behind the farmhouse. Let the farmer tell you which herbs grow in her garden. That’s really interesting! Do I need to pick, tear or cut the herbs? Every plant is different. Once you’ve collected the herbs, the farmer will show you how she makes a spread using home-made quark. Yes, the one that you had for breakfast. So delicious! Would you like to try? The local cuisine in Lower Austria is diverse and healthy. At the end of your farm holiday in Lower Austria, you’re not only fully relaxed but you also have a bunch of great recipes to take home.
For Hay Lovers & Tractor Co-Pilots
In summer, it’s time to bring in the hay. Let’s get the work done before a storm begins to brew. Right now, the sun is shining brightly. Quick! Everyone who’d like to lend a hand is welcome.
Are you in? Helping with the harvest is an adventure in nature. At the same time, it’s a really good workout. Plus, it’s an experience that will live on in your memory. It’s been a while since you laughed that much! Both, afternoon snack and dinner in the farmer’s kitchen taste even better after this physical activity. You’ve got something very meaningful done!
For Sleepy Heads & Dream Catchers
It’s the combination of fresh air, good food and outdoor activities: On the farm, you’ll flop into bed at the end of the day, tired and happy. Look forward - you’ll sleep very well!
No traffic noise. In fact, there’s not a sound to hear. Only a few crickets are chirping next to your window. At night, the cat goes for a wander on the roof. Low murmuring sounds fill the air in the early morning. The hens are having a chat.
On the farm, you’ll start the day full of energy. Enjoy an ample breakfast and embark on a new, exciting adventure!
