In the midst of the idyllically situated and yet easily accessible from Olpe, Attendorn, Finnentrop or Plettenberg, lies our part-time farm.
In addition to the many different types of animals such as pigs, chickens, geese, sheep, horses, the donkey Max and the farm dogs, the farm includes arable land for growing cereals, meadows, forest and a vegetable and potato field.
This results in many exciting projects and topics in the change of the seasons. Experiencing and helping out in wind, weather or even sunshine determine everyday life. Every year is different and has its own charm, special features and also worries. This living with the seasons is a focus of our work and also means that, for example, no two annual courses are the same.
There is always something going on with us - in addition to our own five children, we also house an outside residential group with nine children from the Olper Josefshaus.
Since 2018, we have been marketing our pigs together with the Kost butchery from Attendorn. There you can get homemade specialties such as blood sausage and liver sausage, Mettendchen and Dauerwurst, ham on the bone, delicious food for barbecuing and much more. These products are also suitable for allergy sufferers, as they are free of additives and preservatives. Because our pigs are raised older than in conventional marketing, the meat is more mature and tastier. By mixing the breeds with Duroc pigs in a special way, we achieve the highest quality of meat. The pigs are kept in small groups with plenty of space and get fresh straw every day. The short walk from the barn to the slaughter room of the farm offers the curious animals a special discovery tour, so they arrive without fear and stress. The daily contacts with the big and small visitors of the barn do not let the pigs get bored and promote a good relationship with humans. The feed for the pigs is mixed in-house, consists mostly of the farm's own grain and is guaranteed GMO-free.
The butcher's shop's central location in Attendorn's city center invites shopping during a stroll through town or at the weekly market.
