Farm tour and visit to the herds At the organic sheep farm Elpons in Bildein, Krainer stone sheep have been bred for over 10 years. At present, about 350-400 animals, including about 130 ewes, live on the farm. The flocks graze meadows in the nature park, which are mostly too steep, too uneven, too small or with many old fruit trees to be mowed by machine. Anyone who would like to get to know the hard-working "landscape keepers" of the nature park meadows better can learn a lot of interesting facts about sheep farming, working with herding dogs, old, endangered breeds of farm animals and lamb products during guided tours of the farm and the pastures. With a bit of luck you can also take part in a short walk with sheep and dogs to the next pasture. If you wish, you can taste the organic lamb sausage assortment and enjoy the scattered fruit and apple juice! We will gladly arrange a suitable program for you.
