Our farm

Location

Diosig is a settlement in West Transylvania, near to the Hungarian border, between Oradea and Debrecen. It is a famous wine-producing land which is also an excellent place for fruit-trees and keeping long-wooled sheep (racka).

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.

The inhabitants of the ranch

Zsófi, our cow. Thanks to her we are constantly served with fresh milk, therefore we can produce our own cheese and yogurt.

Our always curious mangalica-pigs.

Our special and delightful doves.

Our black racka-sheep of Hortobágy who are naturally “more than just sheep”.

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 don’t look at our farm like just an income source, but a harmonious place where we love to live. We would like to share this harmony.
