Farm Shops, Zoos, animal parks and enclosures

To experience the largest bird in the world up close is always a special experience. With us you will find large and small flocks on an 18 hectare site. But especially the ostrich chicks enchant young and old again and again in a very special way. These cavort from spring on lush pastures and perform their dances. You can find products around the ostrich in the farm store and in the online store

Our philosophy:Our animals run on generous unfertilized pastures and are fed ecologically without additives. The meat grows naturally and is therefore particularly valuable. The exoticism of the animals naturally leads many visitors to us. We make sure that both the people and the animals feel equally comfortable. This is possible due to the spaciousness of the premises.

Our way of working:In the beginning there is the ostrich egg - after 42 days a chick hatches, it is always a small miracle. With us this happens in the incubator. After three days it is already lively and starts to eat. The first six to eight weeks the beautiful chicks need a lot of care and attention, they are very sensitive. Later it becomes easier. The ostriches are outside the whole year. They are then fed once a day, the rest they have to find themselves in the pasture. At about 12-16 months the animals are ready for slaughter. We have the slaughtering done at an approved ostrich slaughterhouse.

We are ostrich farmers 7 days a week and that with heart and soul. Besides feeding, we have to set up and maintain the areas and the facility. Visitors have a thousand questions about this great bird.

Then there is the farm store, the heart of the farm. Here, guests are always impressed by what can be made from the ostrich and its products. A touch of Africa in the middle of Mecklenburg. The most dangerous part, however, remains the collection of the eggs. The rooster is so careful that it can quickly escape over the 1.80 m high fence. That is, to the ostrich breeding one must be also sporty.

During the season (April-October) the farm is open all day for a tour.
