Helping on the Farm
Yellow fields of rapeseed, high maize plants, countless potatoes in the ground. Cows, sheep and goats roam freely and graze on the lush green grass. The farmer took you along on his tractor. Together, you’re riding across the open fields and meadows.

Diverse Tasks on the Farm
Threshing, ploughing and bringing in the hay, followed by making silage and storing it for the upcoming winter. These are only some of the many tasks in the fields. That’s what farmers do for a living.
At home, there’s work in the barn to be done: mucking out, milking, feeding and repairing fences. The farmer’s wife takes care of the livestock, plants vegetables in beds and harvests apples. You can actively help and support her on the farm.
And the best thing is: after the work has been done, you’ll get a reward for your effort and hard work! Taste and enjoy the fantastic products from the farm. The hosts share their table with you and your family. Together, you savour everything that Upper Austria’s nature has to offer!
