Our organic farm in the Zillertal
Authentic Farm Holiday
Our family, Max and Elisabeth with children Christine, Maria, Eva, and Sebastian, have been running the Paulerhof for 3 generations, and we are an ORGANIC grassland farm with dairy cattle and calves.
In summer, the dairy cows, young cattle, and calves head up to our alpine pasture on the Wiedersbergerhorn in the Alpbachtal, and in winter, the animals return to the stables and are fed with good-quality, healthy hay from our meadows. We never use silage for our animals, only fresh, delightfully fragrant hay! A small part of our animals stay down in the valley in summer so that our guests, especially the children, can experience an authentic farm holiday here at the Paulerhof. You can help with work in the stables or even watch the birth of a calf!
Since November 2009, we have been a member of BIKO-Tirol, and we have been a member of BIO-AUSTRIA since April 2010.
BIO AUSTRIA's values: each organization must have defined values - regulate dealings with one another - be a community of shared values! The basis is ecology = the balance of nature. Organic farming is the key technology of the 21st century.
We, the organic farmers, look at the big picture, which means
Climate protection through the reduction of greenhouse gases
Farming on healthy soil
Protection of drinking water
Promotion of biodiversity
Healthy food from healthy plants and animals
Highest food quality with good yields
Creation of livable habitats
Organic control system for the greatest safety
In autumn 2010, we received the certification for "Farm Holidays".
We have always placed great importance on the use of natural materials with the interior decoration and facade of our farm. We also pay particular attention to waste sorting, and we try to pass this along to our guests. In our vacation apartments and in the wellness area, there are many different informative booklets and magazines on the topic of ORGANIC, and of course, our farm-fresh products are also very popular.
The entire interior decoration is designed with natural materials, and growing in our garden are many different herbs that guests are welcome to sample.
In the farm's own schnapps distillery, we put our heart and soul into making good, authentic, unadulterated pear schnapps, which guests are encouraged to sample.
At the Paulerhof, our guests can enjoy an active and authentic "Farm Holiday".
