Feasts and Traditions in the Farmer's Kitchen

A Farm Holiday in Austria Tastes Like This

From the steppe lake to the glacier - Austria is a country of diverse landscapes and diverse historical traditions. Local customs are still an important part of life, especially in rural areas. Apart from celebrating Christian holidays, there’s also a number of cultural events that are unique to a certain region.

No matter if it’s a kirmess or a pumpkin festival: there’s no celebration without a feast! A unique set of culinary traditions has evolved in every region. This cultural heritage is probably most firmly rooted in the kitchens on Austria’s family farms. That doesn’t come as a surprise. After all, this is the place where the food comes from. Grain is grown here and turned into bread later on. Cows are raised here and their milk is transformed into delicious cheese. On the farm, old and treasured recipes are still passed down from one generation to the next. Traditional dishes with a modern twist or classic recipes just like Grandma used to make them - the basis are the same: fresh, locally grown ingredients and a good sense of tradition. 

Would you like to know how Easter or Christmas tastes like? Come to a family farm in Austria, then!

A lot of our guests stay on our farm because they want to show their kids where their food comes from. They want to make them understand that it's a lot of work and effort to produce food. Often, they remember what their grandma has taught them long ago.
