What can one farm do?
Kollreid has shown us that living a good life does not have to be at the expense of the coming generations.
Our mission is to take an active role in preserving biodiversity and to implement circular solutions in our business that contribute to the wellbeing of humans and animals without harming our planet. For instance, we only use renewable sources of energy coming from wood and solar panels. The latter is a great solution up here since we live on the southern slopes and have plenty of sunny days all year round. We practise alpine transhumance on our pastures. Instead of intensive farming we manage these in a circular way that keeps our soil healthy and promotes biodiversity including a variation of different plants which in turn is insect friendly. Our farm animals play an important part of this circularity by grazing on the pastures and providing manure. Moreover, we plant a variation of different kinds of trees to fight against monoculture in our forests.
We promote areas such as healthy, natural food and an active lifestyle. The guests at our farm have the possibility to co-learn and contribute in our mission to preserve biodiversity – because we all play a part in this. Whether it is by helping us to make hay or giving a hand in the garden, we appreciate your help.
We wish that Kollreider Hof can raise some awareness of the impacts of our modern lifestyles and inspire people to find a closer connection to themselves and the nature.
