Welcome to the organic farm Maurachgut in Gastein!

The bio farm Maurachgut is situated 1000 metres above sea level in Bad Hofgastein in the Gastein valley. Enjoy magnificent views of the Gastein's alpine world from our house. Both in summer and in winter time, the Gasteinertal offers you numerous recreational opportunities.

The farmhouse is the perfect location for spending your holidays - it is away from all the through-roads, surrounded by fields and pure nature, although you can reach the village centre of Bad Hofgastein within a few minutes by car (about 1,8 km). In winter you can ski directly to our house, provided the bottom ski runs are opened. In summer there are walking tracks passing directly our organic farm.

Our family is now in its 4th generation as owners of the Maurachgut, which dates back about 1350. We are an organic farm with a great variety of farm animals: dairy cattle, sheep, goats, horses, hens and of course cats. We also raise calves. Which means, when you stay with us, you will be enjoying an authentic farmhouse vacation. Especially popular with our guests are our fresh organic milk and eggs from happy hens as well as all the other homemade products.

Holidays on our organic farm


Animals on the farm

Maurachgut is a family owned working organic dairy farm with several kinds of animals. In summer, the dairy cows and some calves are staying at our farm. The young cattle and older calves as well as our horses, sheep and goats head up to our alpine pastures on the Leidalm. During the winter, they are kept in the barn and fed good-quality, healthy hay and silage from our own fields. Cats and chicken are also at our farm. The hens have free access to the great outdoors and can scratch and peck in the soil, which is their natural behaviour. They also have plenty of space on the perch and plenty of nesting boxes to lay their eggs in.

Organic farming - farming in harmony with nature

Organic agriculture is a sustainable way of farming. It means producing healthy food whilst leaving the goodness in the land for future generations. Organic farming was developed more than 60 years ago by several persons, in order to offer an alternative to conventional farming methods. The task of a farm is to produce healthy, and above all high-quality foods, and to do so in harmony with the cycles of nature. And so it was that organic farming became an attractive alternative both for farmers and consumers.

Beginning in the year 1959, the first organic associations were founded in Austria, the predecessors of what would later become Bio Austria. The switch from conventional to organic farming at our own farm took place in 1993. The aim was to run our farm as closely to nature as possible. Strict standards define what organic farms can and can't do and place a strong emphasis on protecting the environment. Our animals are kept in species-appropriate conditions, including regular outdoor exercise (in winter, too) and they always receive fragrant, healthy hay and silage from our organic farm. In the process, we keep our fields and pastures vibrant, the water clean, whilst also preserving a habitat for people, animals and plants. Organic stands for ethics and extends far beyond healthy food.


Self-made products

As we are a traditional farmhouse, we produce lots of things by ourselves at our farm. Fresh produce, local specialities, slow food, home baking, homemade products such as jam, juice from apples, wild fruits and herbs, cheese, bread, herbal teas, butter, creams, soaps, schnapps, liqueurs... - you will find all these things and more directly at our farm. Our tasty products are real and genuine.

If you book B&B, a plentiful rich breakfast with also some home-made products of our organic farm (such as milk, bread, cheese, butter, jam, juice, herbal tea) is included. Also guests of the apartment can buy at our house the farm's own produce. Enjoy a breakfast of purely health ingredients.
