04 At the Farm at Egg, Bregenzerwald
Some years ago the Metzler family in Egg opened Vorarlberg‘s first walk-in farm. Alongside the dairy-school and the new building cum visitors’ gallery in which the Metzler family processes whey into beauty products, holidaymakers can have a look at the impressive cattle pen and a goat house from the visitors’ gallery. The small pet cuddle area has a special draw for the little ones. The adjoining farm shop stocks a wide assortment of farm products, from cream cheese to whey products.
With this project which runs under the name of NATURHAUTNAH (nature close-up), the Metzler family has created a place of energy-efficient and sustainable farming, where visitors can learn about farming processes hands-on. The project has won several national and international awards.Learn more
