MILK SHEEP

The East Friesian milk sheep at the Bungerthof enjoy the fresh air all year round in Berg am Irchel and in the surrounding pasture grounds. Every spring a public sheep shearing takes place. Between May and October, after the lambs stop drinking their mothers’ milk and use the grassland which is rich in herbs, cream cheese is produced.

HERB AND WILD PLANT GARDEN

The plants and vegetables from the Bungerthof garden are used to make various products such as herbal salts, syrup and tea. Plums, apples and pears grow on the farm’s standard fruit trees. People of all ages can also go on a discovery tour of the garden and explore the various smells of the plants.
