Our animals

Why should you not eat the animals which you have caressed?

Josef Zotter intends to breathe new life into old breeds of livestock. This means that not the most profitable animals but for a turn those animals whose meat tastes the most delicious will be raised here. Numerous old breeds of livestock have completely disappeared from the market. And this is due to the delusion of having to squeeze another litre milk out of the cow. All animals are kept in a species appropriate way because after all this is the purpose of this project. They stay the whole year outdoor. They are free to move in their subterranean stables whenever they want to.
