Agricultural reorientation at the Huberhof

The ‘Huberhof’ farm neighbouring the hotel has always been a dairy farm. Senior boss Peter took over the farm from his father, who died very young, when he was just 19 years old.

For many years, Peter's passion for animals and dairy farming was his top priority. As early as the 1980s, however, he was able to build up a second mainstay alongside dairy farming with a small guesthouse.

The ‘farm milk’ chapter has now been a thing of the past since May 2024. We would like to thank Senior Manager Peter for his many years of work and look back on this part of the Huberhof's history with pride.

To this day, the farm adjoining the hotel is a special feature of the Huberhof and is particularly popular with families and our younger guests. The Huberhof stables are open to everyone and can be visited at any time by young and old with their chickens, horses, alpacas and goats. The breakfast eggs from the Huberhof are still at the top of the menu. Guests appreciate the O km origin of the breakfast eggs, which are prepared daily into a variety of egg dishes, such as omelettes, crépes, fried eggs or scrambled eggs.

GoodBYE Rosi, Welcome Safari!

‘Rosi’ as a synonym for our farm cow and ‘Safari’ as a synonym for all our alpacas

The decision to stop dairy farming and rearing alpacas and Haflinger horses was based on several considerations:

Whereas in the past farms mainly served to cover basic needs such as food or the livelihood of the family living there, today other motivations play a role in maintaining a farm: economic considerations, personal interests and local circumstances influence the considerations of a farmer, who now no longer sees himself as a ‘keeper of the family’ in the original sense, but as an entrepreneur. For Jonas, who is now taking over the Huberhof farm as well as the hotel business, there was never any question of giving up the farm due to the heavy labour requirements of dairy farming.

Rather, Jonas saw the Huberhof as an opportunity to create a better balance with the hotel in order to make the connection between farm and hotel an added value for guests. Alpaca breeding offers a number of advantages and can make an important contribution to tourism, as the needs and expectations of guests and visitors have also changed.

In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, many people are looking for peace and relaxation. Time in nature, time with animals, in our example with alpacas and horses, can help to relax the soul. Horses and alpacas have established themselves as effective therapy animals, especially in recent years. They are shy by nature, but very curious and often seek to get close to people. Alpaca treks and excursions with animals in the countryside are also very popular with tourists and can be easily combined with the interests of the hotel.

Alpaca wool products are also in great demand and will be available to buy at the Huberhof in future. Alpaca wool is highly valued for its softness, warmth and hypoallergenic properties and is a high-quality material for textiles. The fibre can be used to make a variety of products, including clothing, blankets and accessories.

We are looking forward with excitement and ambition to the new agricultural future at Huberhof and invite you to be curious too. We are already looking forward to the new challenge and to working with the new animals moving into the Huberhof.

A big thank you to Peter for his many years of dedication and love for the farm and the animals.
