Experience the life cycle of high-quality food made from hay milk
On the SchauBauernhof (Show Farm) you will learn everything about the origins of real food: a natural, animal-appropriate environment. Here we have hay milk cows, sheep & goats, busy honeybees and happy hens. Additionally, informative films and cozy relaxation ones await you with a view of the breathtaking mountain world of the Zillertal Alps. The young (and the young-at-heart) can enjoy the mini tractor course, fun hay-jumping and what‘s probably the largest hay milk can in the world – our giant slide, complete with observation tower.
At the SchauSennerei (Show Alpine Dairy) you can then experience how the valuable hay milk is refined of into cheese, butter & co. At various stations along the „glass-house production“ you can take a look behind the scenes of how milk is processed and peek over the mastervcheesemaker‘s shoulder. No appointment is necessary to tour the farm, because audio guides help our guests enjoy the experience independently. For groups of 20 persons or more, we will be happy to organize a personal, guided tour if you make your reservation in advance.
At the GENUSSlöffel (DELIGHTFULspoon) at the end of the tour, you can be the judge of the taste and quality of fresh hay milk and a creamy variety of yogurts at 8 different tasting stations. Of course, you also have the opportunity to taste the most popular cheeses of the Zillertal ErlebnisSennerei (Alpine Dairy Experience) as part of a cheese tasting. If you’re really hungry, let our Alpine Dairy Kitchen that we call the “Sennereiküche,” satisfy you with naturally tasty, regional specialties. Last but not least, you will find all the region‘s diversity in the Ab-Hof Shop. For enjoyment you can take with you, we have a wide selection of fine treats available – from the Zillertal Dairy Experience’s.
