In the village Bildein near to the Hungarian border the Elpons-family breeds ”Krainer Steinschafe”, an old, rare breed of sheep. Our flock is growing constantly, we have about 130 ewes plus offspring and rams. We graze meadows which are under nature protection in the vineyards with old scattered fruit trees, our sheep are in a stable only from December to March. Our daily chores are mainly taking care of the sheep on the paddocks (supported by our trained Border Collie), making fences and hay, sheering sheep and marketing meat. In addition we breed chicken, cultivate a big vegetable garden and produce apple juice and syrups. Part of our family are also the parents/in-laws, and two children (2010, 2012). As our guest you can help and learn everywhere on the farm, the house and the garden and relax in our swimming pond. Accomodation in your own room. The region invites you to go biking, for walks and trips to Hungary. In the evening you can try the great wines of the region in a Buschenschank.
