Our farm

The History of our Farm

In 2008 we decided to leave Budapest behind and, to continue family traditions, to establish our own bio farm. Since 2009 we have been certified bio farmers.

At first we bedded out fruit trees and soon our orchard had schooled hundreds of tiny walnut, plum and pear saplings. The orchard blended in to the landscape just beautifully. We laid lawn among the trees that supported habitat for many species of birds and insects, and of course, as a result we would also enjoy a stroll in the orchard even more. 

We received our first long-wooled sheep as a birthday gift in 2012, and we brought three more so they wouldn’t feel lonely. We immediately grew fond of them since they had been really gentle and gorgeous animals. Also, shepherding them on the grazing grounds had been an absolute joy for both the kids and for us. We extended the herd with twenty more ewes (female sheep) in 2017 and as of Spring 2018, including the lambs, already 40 long-wooled sheep have been grazing the pasture surrounded by the orchard.

The farm in numbers

Our farm is situated on a field of 15 acres which includes a ploughland of 10 acres, an orchard of approximately 3 acres and a meadow of 2 acres. In our orchard there are more than 30 different fruit species. Those include 250 plum-trees, approx. 50 pear-trees and above 400 pieces of nut-tree.

Ecological diversity and our philosophy

It’s important for us to adjust our farm to the nature and environment. So can we work in harmony with nature. That’s why is here a rich variety of insects and birds. Every year we have a new bird who find home by us.

We think it is important that children get to know rackas and their surroundings from a small distance. Therefore children, either in groups or with their parents, are always welcome on our farm.
Here they can be little shepherds for a couple of hours or a whole day. They learn how to mind the sheep and can help to look after them.
It is well-known that activities like minding sheep, going for walks in the countryside etc. can give people a feeling of happiness. On pastureland children can find such pleasant effects. There they can watch birds quietly in the shadow of a pear tree, they can roll down a hill or they can make a shepherd´s stick. While doing this children hum or sing instinctively, strengthening their feeling of happiness.
