A day at the farm

at the Tragler organic farm

Ein Tag am Bauernhof


The fifth farm day in this series is all about laying hens and arable farming and takes us to one of the oldest organic farms in the region, Biohof Tragler.

Robert farms 20 hectares of rounded arable land and produces almost everything his 1,800 laying hens need to feed themselves. He sells 90% of his eggs to wholesalers and the rest of his products to neighbouring organic shops and selected FoodCoops. In his constant endeavour to refine his farming methods in terms of agroecology, Robert took the step a few years ago to switch to Turiel dam culture 

What is dam culture? What do laying hens eat to do well? Why fewer branches is sometimes more? We can answer these and other questions together with Robert on 4 May.
