Our Tyrolean Organic Farm

Our adventure and riding farm is a working organic farm. When staying with us, you and your children will have the opportunity to experience the seasonal farming work in Tyrol first-hand.

 

Our animals are like partners and friends to us. On our organic farm, we ensure that all our animals are fed with the hay we produce on our own farm under the strict guidelines for organic farming.

 

As concentrated feed, we use certified organic grain mixes. Annual inspections to check compliance with organic standards are mandatory.

 

The modern and spacious stable building has 18 boxes for our horses, ponies and petting zoo. The push rod manure removal system is the height of luxury. This system keeps the stable aisle clean and also makes light work of an otherwise labour-intensive job.

 

The llamas and Tyrolean mountain sheep spend the winter months at our farmstead in St. Georgen.

The hay for our animals comes from our alpine pastures around and above Serfaus.

 

We cultivate 19 hectares of grassland.

 

  • 10 hectares of double-cut meadows
  • 5 hectares of single-cut alpine meadows – the majority of these must be harvested manually
  • 4 hectares of pastures – these are largely used for grazing our horses

 

Connected to the stables is a spacious barn with two haystacks, one for the 1st cut (early hay) and one for the 2nd cut (aftermath), each with its own ventilation system. The hay crane that can operate at up to 7 metres is an indispensable helper for filling and emptying the haystacks.

 

Most of the hay harvested on our higher alpine meadows is still brought into the “Pilla” (small barn on the meadow itself) by hand.

 

We do not use any form of artificial fertiliser to fortify the soil, relying instead on natural manure.

As many of our alpine meadows are located on extremely steep slopes, we need to use lightweight, all-terrain and agile equipment that does not damage the soil. The extremely steep meadows are harvested manually with a mower.


For haymaking, we also have a Reform Metrac tractor and Muli transporter. The Metrac has various attachments including a rotary disc mower, tedder and belt rake, making it extremely versatile. It is also used as the "cart horse" in our arenas, making the floors nice and smooth.


We have various swap bodies (loader wagon for hay, manure spreader, loading platform) for our Muli, which makes the transporter a true all-rounder. To help us with the day-to-day work around the stable, we use a Lindner tractor.
