From early 2017, visitors to the Metzler family farm in Egg will be able not only to observe animals such as cows and goats, but also watch how natural beauty products are made. From the open visitors’ gallery in the new building, they can witness with all their senses how whey, medicinal plants and high-grade essences are turned into beauty products. The Metzler family uses whey as the base product for a skin care line and has developed a range of top-quality natural beauty products in cooperation with Susanne Kaufmann from Hotel Post Bezau.
Another visitor attraction is the closed-circuit system the Metzler family relies on: a thermal solar system encompassing a large-scale gravel heat sink placed under the new building’s baseplate supplies electricity. Everything – from the grass the animals eat to the silage-free milk and cheese to the whey used as the basis for the cosmetic products – is being processed, presented, and offered up for tasting and sale on site, with nothing being hidden behind closed doors.
Whey body care products and soft drinks
Ingo Metzler produces fine personal hygiene products and powder to be made into drinks from whey. These products are also available online.
Susanne Kaufmann Spa Cosmetics
A clear look and essences from Bregenzerwald nature determine the products. They are available in the Hotel Post and in the online shop.
