THE ESTATE

Gut Oberstockstall - a living farm organism

We  live in a world driven by specialisation and efficiency. It had always been clear to me that this would not be my way of life. Therefore, I have been constantly striving for a sustainable farm that operates in a closed circuit: agriculture, lifestock and viticulture. Our cattle's manure is the best fertiliser and our fresh hay the best feed. Each part supports one another and eventually results in a circular economy based on a living farm-organism.  

 

Our vegetable garden and the project Fermentarium

Three hectares of our surface are dedicated to the cultivation of vegetables and are farmed by Rudi Hoheneder. Just like us, Rudi cultivates the fields according to biodynamic principles and Turiel's ridge-planting method. From summer to winter, he supplies the members of his community supported agriculture with fresh vegetables. Also, some of the vegetables are fermented and result in bottled and pickled specialities. 

Enhancing the diversity of species

Twenty years ago we realised that less and less birds were staying on our estate. So, we planted shelter belts of multiple trees and bushes to enhance the diversity and create natural nesting areas. However, those shelter belts were not only beneficial for all kinds of birds, they have also created new habitat for other species which has now led to an increased biodiversity in our agricultural fields, vineyards and around our farm.
