The farmers give you an insight into their daily lives. If you like, you can lend them a hand and pitch right in.
This way, you can be sure that you know where it comes from, the carrot that is served with some yoghurt sauce. Or which herbs make the tea in your mug have such a tangy smell. And you can be sure that the eggs used for the yellow sponge cake come from happy hens.

A Peek into the Farmer's Kitchen
Watch the beanstalks and sunflowers grow, they seem to compete with each other. Bright orange pumpkins are dotting the fields.
You have arrived on the farm, on your well-deserved holiday for food lovers. Lean back and relax. Watch the colourful butterflies land on the sweet-smelling flowers of lilac while you listen to the meditative sound of busy bees humming in the garden. Meanwhile, the friendly cow Lisa grazes nearby, keeping you company. Revel in the variety of options! A holiday for food lovers on a farm in Austria will be the highlight of your summer holidays.
If you feel like it, you can spend your morning in the fields or the vegetable and herb garden. Return to the farmer’s kitchen with a well-stocked basket. Be all ears when your host, the farmer, gives away her secret recipes! You will learn everything about the perfect ratio for baking bread. What it’s all about when they talk about crust and crumb. Or which herbs can be used for which purposes and in which combinations.
There’s a lot going on in the farmer's kitchen, also in winter. Peek over the farmer’s shoulder and look how she’s turning last year’s harvest, canned or dried fruit and vegetables, into wintry delights. A lot of these culinary treats have become an integral part of winter and Christmas traditions. Preparing these traditional dishes together with your farmer and host is something very special.
And let’s be honest: it’s extremely meditative to clean the freshly picked organic vegetables in the kitchen sink while you let your eyes wander, gazing out of the window at the open fields.
Energise on the Vineyard
Grapes find their way into the glass - and you find your way to a vineyard in Austria. The plains of Austria’s easternmost province Burgenland, the rocky terraces of the Wachau region in Lower Austria or the steep hills in Styria: they are all home to delightful vineyards.
Take a look behind the scenes and let the winegrowers show you how wine is produced. No matter if you just peek over the winegrower’s shoulder or if you help harvesting the grapes followed by the process of turning them into a fine wine: at the end of an exciting day, it’s time for a good glass of wine and a substantial snack with cold cuts, cheeses and spreads served with home-made bread with a crispy crust. That’s all part of your well-deserved holiday!
