The Halterhof lies at approx. 500 m above sea level. below the moss head (873m).It is one of the most remote farms in the Durbach Valley and about 7 km from the center. For centuries the remoteness of the courtyard required almost complete self-sufficiency and well-planned storage.
The structural change in the past decades has changed the farm forever. While grain, beets and potatoes were previously cultivated, sustainable forestry with Christmas tree crops is now practiced. Fruit growing with a noble distillery today contribute to the operating income in addition to the rental of holiday apartments. The "witty" mountain brandies can be purchased in a neat parlor and, of course, also tried.
To this day, working on the steep slopes (heaps) is very difficult. The use of machines is only possible to a very limited extent. A large vegetable garden and various animals make a holiday on the Halterhof in the middle of a wonderful hiking area around the moss an experience.
On this farm you live - in and with - nature, whether family, relatives, friends or holiday guests. Whoever loves nature is right here.
