Family holidays on a farm – Our animals
At our farm, many different animals look forward to visits from our young and old guests. Here with us, you may personally experience everyday life on a farm with animals.
➤ Our eight kittens ("Mina") like to be the centre of attention and are happy to be cuddled, fed, and cared for.
➤ Our goats "Marta" and "Hugo" and their offspring are of special importance to us, as they were a present from the Easter Bunny to our girls. They love to be taken to pasture to enjoy the day in the sun.
➤ Our sheep "Selma" and "Luisa" - also an Easter bunny present - are very dominant animals and friends of our goats. We appreciate them very much because they provide us with precious wool that we need for felting, for our cottage garden and for wintering our plants.
➤ Our ducks "Max" and "Elsa" are a Mother's Day present from our children. They always fascinate us because of your loyalty to one another. All day long they are busy catching insects and keeping our garden free of snails.
➤ We particularly love our hard-working chickens, which unfortunately don't have names because there are simply too many. Every day they lay delicious eggs for us, which we use for breakfast and to prepare delicious dishes.
➤ The hardest working animals on our farm are our cows. They provide us with fresh and valuable milk every day, which we need for our health!
