Organic farm adventure
A special holiday for children
Every Tuesday from mid-June to October, all children are invited to go on an excursion to the Lahner family’s organic farm.
At 9:30 a.m. Farmer Christine picks up the children directly at Smaragdhotel Tauernblick. Together they take the Pinzgau train to Dorf bei Bramberg and walk the short distance to the farm.
Christine and her husband George live on their farm along with three children and lots of animals. Calves, chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs, sheep, goats, pot-bellied pigs, miniature Shetland ponies, a dog and an Icelandic pony. All the farm animals like to be petted!
In the morning, Christine bakes bread with the children. At noon they eat the homemade bread with sausages. In the afternoon, it’s time for arts and crafts and cooking: The children can make jam, hay hearts and keychains and take them home. In the meantime, the children can visit and pet the animals! At 3 p.m. Christine accompanies the children to the train and back to the hotel.
