The tent story
For the Meister family and the Steigackerhof, in December 2018 we built a fully insulated yurt with a diameter of 7m. The floor was handmade by the customer himself.
In order to avoid as much moisture as possible, a ditch next to the yurt was taken into account, which they filled up with coarse gravel. So the water runs better and protects the outer shell. The interior has been furnished with great attention to detail. They have even painted our normal silver chimney frame retro style with black matt oven color, so that it also fits the old wood stove.
The yurt is used as a classroom and lounge on the organic farm. There was simply not enough space in the house for larger classes and the yurt also creates a demarcation from the private living area. The Steigackerhof offers playgroups, kindergartens, school classes, clubs and other interested groups, practical, age-appropriate lessons on the diverse, biological, holistic form of agriculture. The aim is to experience the organic farm and learn something for life at the same time.
The organic farm is run with love and passion. In a small shop you can also stock up on fresh vegetables, fine fruits and meat from our own production.
