As you enter the Wiesmüllerhof farm, two dogs rush excitedly to meet you. Behind them some chickens cluck and the farm’s seven horses neigh impatiently.

Life at the Florian family is rich in variety. In addition to their 2 hectares of apple orchards and vineyards, the couple now run an equestrian centre with holiday apartments. At the same time, Evi and Armin produce honey, wine, apple juice and vinegar. Gala, Golden Delicious, Red Delicious, Granny Smith and Pink Lady® grow on the Wiesmüllerhof farm.

The dream of running your own farm

Evi had actually dreamed of becoming a qualified florist, while Florian aspired to be a chef, but they both grew up on a farm with farming in their blood. At some point they decided they wanted to run their own farm, a dream they realised when they took over the Wiesmüllerhof farm. Even though working in agriculture is a strenuous, full-time job 7 days a week, they’ve never regretted it.
