Our “green” overnight concept - we respect nature Traveling broadens horizons, brings people together and is fun - but it also uses up a lot of resources. For us, stays of just one night not only consume water, energy, detergents and cleaning supplies, but also a lot of time to clean the rooms. That is why we reward longer overnight stays with lower prices. 2 - 4 nights: - 20% Discount 5 nights: pay only 4 nights
The farm to join in - discover nature with all your senses A farm is a true paradise for children, because new adventures await every day. Our farm is a real attraction, especially for children! Your children can take part and accompany us everywhere. We see bright children's eyes every time our little guests are allowed to stroke and feed a goat for the first time. We would be happy to take you and your children into the stable and explain the different steps. Every now and then we also reveal a real farmer's secret. And of course our animals also have to be petted, fed and cared for on a regular basis. We are always happy when we have a helpful hand to support us in our work. It can also happen that a goat goes on a journey and we all have to bring the escapee back home together. We like to take our time and explain the relationships between the communities on the farm, in the forest and on the meadows.

Our farm - a green circular economy to help create

We live in harmony with nature and use all resources in a circular economy - nothing is lost and almost nothing has to come from outside. On the contrary, we end up with more than we can use ourselves and can give something away. We live in harmony with nature and use all resources in a circular economy - nothing is lost and almost nothing has to come from outside. On the contrary, we end up with more than we can use ourselves and can give something away. We see our paradise as a lively place to see and experience for people who are interested in and want to get involved in sustainable and future-oriented development. We want to be a place for learning and experience and to create structures, resources and spaces for our own activities. The entire property offers a variety of opportunities to develop alternative design and cultivation methods. We would like to give our guests and visitors suggestions and impart knowledge so that they can become active themselves.

Workacation - Workshop weeks

SPECIAL OFFER 2024

“Dairy and animals” Milk comes from the cow – of course! and cheese is made from milk. But how does the milk get into the cow and how does it come out again? How does milk become cheese and is it the same for every cheese? Yoghurt, kefir, cottage cheese and butter are also made from milk... Let's tackle it together! You will get to know all the animals on our farm and take care of all their needs in order to be able to live in a species-appropriate manner - feeding and replenishing drinking water, mucking out the stables and adding litter again and also the further use of the stable manure as a basis for compost production. As a reward there are lots of eggs and milk. We'll show you the basics of animal husbandry and how much work it takes to get organic eggs and milk for further use. Alessa takes you into the versatility of milk and how you can preserve milk and even use its various positive properties for the body and digestion.

We'll take you on a journey through the peculiarities of our gardening and let you in on the secrets of Schlotty's Kitchen. You will learn tips, tricks and basics of gardening, as well as concepts and concrete implementation with a focus on growing healthy vegetables in a small area, be it in a raised bed, in the urban garden in front of the house or on the balcony. In order to keep costs as low as possible, we avoid buzzwords like permaculture or agroforestry and show you how you can provide a sustainable garden with an understanding of natural processes and connections.

Moose hunting in Latgale

5 travel days / 3 hunting days Season: September, October Our hunts are very "stressless" thanks to our comfortable accommodation, short journeys to the hunting territories and short game drives. In June, bucks can be hunted, also boars are drawn to the meadows. Only in this time you can see the rotts or individual boars early on the green areas. In September mooses and red deers can be hunted together with great success. Deer with up to 10 kg of antlers and European mooses can be found here. In the winter, the wolf and boar can be seen. For the hunt, we only need your hunting license, your European firearm passport and your ID, which we pass on for obtaining your Latvian hunting license.
