Look at the organic show farm

On show farms, visitors can experience first-hand the harmonious everyday life on an organic farm. 29 organic farms open their doors and gates and invite guests to ask questions, to discover and to join in. Not only the little organic fans find this time out on the organic farm an exciting experience, but also the big ones get stuck in and when the work is finished, the organic food served in front of the house tastes even better. Especially, when the old farmer tells his stories of yesteryear and knows to report: “actually we have always worked this way” Today it’s called organic but for us it has always gone without saying.” The authenticity and the joy of working is ever present here. However, that is not enough. Whoever wants to be a real organic farmer in the Salzburger Organic Paradise, must meet the strict certification criteria of the Bio-Austria.

Tauern rye, mountain cheese and more

On a Farmhouse Holiday you can just taste it when the breakfast egg comes from happy hens and when milk comes from cows whose summer residence is the lush green pastures high above SalzburgerLand. Also, when the Tauern rye bread is made from a traditional recipe and comes straight from the wood-fired oven. This is when you know why organic does so good. Regional products are also served in the selected organic hotels and organic restaurants.

Organic cooking

On an Organic Farmhouse Holiday, your hosts serve fine delicacies. For all those who want to take the fine ideas home with them, there are the organic recipes. Some organic farmers invite you to get involved and show how the organic food is best prepared in the kitchen. The close collaboration of producers and chefs is one of the secrets behind the pleasure in SalzburgerLand. This co-operation is characterised by exchanging ideas and the development of mutual support and requests. When the ingredients for the wonderful dishes come from sustainable farming, then this is even better.
