Family holidays on the farm

Hey, kids! This is what a typical summer day on our farm is like:

Our animals get up early in the morning. When they do, they are already very hungry and look forward to a big helping of fragrant hay from the meadow. Afterwards, they are ready for milking and sure to produce their very best milk. And so that they are happy to return to their cowshed in the evening, we spread out a fresh bed of straw for them.

With the arrival of summer, the day comes when our animals are in for a huge treat – when they are finally let out onto our lush meadows. Literally leaping for joy, the cows, ponies, sheep and goats trot out towards the field. Once there, they can spend all day long frolicking and munching on the juicy grass and herbs. Just to make sure that none of the animals stray off on their way there, it’s really important that you help me to keep them heading in the right direction.

After a long day outside, the ponies, cows, sheep and goats are already looking forward to their comfy stable and a big serving of hay. The cows are milked one more time, so that our guests can enjoy fresh milk in the morning with their breakfast yet again.

In the evening, too, we have lots going on. After dinner, we head out on pony rides, hikes by lantern light, or gather around a cozy campfire to roast something we call “stick bread” over the flames. The weather will often determine what we do together in the evening. If you still have plenty of energy left over after a day full of activity, you might want to join your friends who are jumping into the hay or see how nimble you are on the climbing wall. If you feel the “need for speed”, you might prefer to clock a few laps around the farm on a go-cart (incidentally, no evening activity program on Thursday or Sunday).
