If there is one thing that all mountain bikers have in common is that the thought of food isn't a million miles away. The good news is that Austrians enjoy their food and plenty of it. At the farm we believe that the best food is homemade and sourced as locally as possible. To really enjoy the best of Austrian eating, we want to mix things up a bit. We'll have barbeques at the farm, eat out at local restaurants, cook over an open fire and enjoy mountain food whilst on the trails.
If you have any other requirements, please don't hesitate to drop us an email or give us a bell. Catering for vegetarians is not a problem.
Every year we harvest strawberries, apricots, raspberries, plums and redcurrants from the farm. Manu then makes some of the best jams I've ever tasted. Bread is either baked fresh at the farm or delivered daily from the local bakery. Austrians generally start breakfast with yoghurt (again homemade) and muesli, followed by bread with meats and cheese or jam. Fruit, herbal or good old English tea are available as well as gallons of coffee to wake you up. If you'd prefer to stay closer to your English roots then we'd recommended a bowl of porridge made with fresh milk from our cows that are only a stone's throw away, delicious!!
- all breakfasts are included in the price of your holiday
Depending on where we are going each day we'll eat at a mountain restaurant. Eating out is well priced in Austria, expect to pay between 8 and 10 for a hot meal and a drink. Often a hearty bowl of Goulash soup (beef, onions, red peppers, and paprika) is enough to keep you going through the day and this is only 3. We'd also recommend the dumpling soups and 'jausn' (equivalent to the English ploughmans). Packed lunches will also be available at a reasonable price - 4, if the group prefers.
- between 4 and 10 needed per day for lunch
On the 'plus' package - after a day in the saddle, sit down, relax and enjoy our three course evening meals. Large portions, with a mixture of home grown and locally sourced ingredients. We combine traditional tyrolean mountain cooking with a few twists. A healthy supply of red / white wine and beer is available during the meals. Or if you'd prefer we have homemade seasonal cordials. The evening meals are provided for five nights of your holiday.
Great food is also available within minutes from the farm, in the local villages. There are grill nights where you can eat as much as you can for 12, to top end 6-course cuisine for a very reasonable 30-40 per head. We have eaten out (extensively!) throughout the region and can recommend food for all our guests requirements. Some of the local specialities include, wiener schnitzel, kase spδtzle (cheese pasta/gnocchi) and venison stews. We'd also recommend trying one of the many types of schnapps that are on offer.

Had a great time, would recommend to anybody. Keith and family were very hospitable. Traditional Austrian cooking was great.
