We have been farming with great commitment for four generations. The fifth generation is actively and joyfully helping out. Thus, three generations work hand in hand. Our farm of 11 hectares is surrounded by fruit trees in the Lindenwies area in Engelburg. As the Eicher-Tanner family, we run a dairy, fruit and forestry business.
Our cows and cattle graze on green meadows in summer and romp around in the snow in winter. In addition to a few rabbits and calves, happy chickens live on our farm. Our “white gold” is the milk and therefore our main branch of production. The cows move around in our bright free-range barn and thus produce the best quality milk. The feed trough, which is accessible around the clock, and clean water troughs also contribute to this. We deliver the milk to the milk collection centre in Rüti.
During the summer our biodiversity meadows thrive and offer a paradise for fauna and flora. In late summer the hay is harvested gently with a lot of manual labour and sweat. In autumn, in wind and weather, our unsprayed fruit is picked up by hand. Only clean and ripe fruit is used. And when it gets colder, our firewood delivery service is ready for a quick delivery to your home. In spring, the agricultural year begins anew with reforestation.
Our animals and the environment are treated with love and respect. The quality of our products is very important to us. Therefore, we hope that in the future we will continue to receive recognition and appreciation from our fellow human beings for our hard but most beautiful work.
