The Wyrsch family and their Buiräbähnli
Together with his wife Anita and their two children, Max Wyrsch runs the organic mountain farm on Diegisbalm. They keep mother cows and goats. They deliver the goat milk to the cheese dairy in Dallenwil. In summer, the cows are distributed to the various alps in the neighborhood and the goats move to their summer residence in Erstfeld. Anita and Max invest a lot of time as well as energy in the farm. In 2014 they built a new barn and even now they have various projects. Neither of them are farmers' children, but they have spent five and ten summers respectively on an alp. Together, the couple from Schwyz and Uri cherished the dream of farming themselves.

On Diegisbalm there is no catering business available. On request, meat from the farm's own animals and honey are sold. The specialties from Diegisbalm are dried meat and house sausages. Interested parties are welcome and are asked to contact the Wyrsch family directly.
