Together with my daughter, I arrive at the Scheuber family farm. The 20 or so children and their parents are excited to see what there is to discover on the farm at the foot of the Rooster. A little girl is looking for "les vaches" - the cows - everywhere. In summer, of course, they are on the alpine pastures. Nevertheless, there is a lot to see and learn on the Winkel farm.
And we are lucky, Helena Scheuber can show us a baby calf. It is only a week old. The children stroke it, give it their finger to suckle and discover a little goat right next to it. Caramel is on holiday at Scheubers.
A hen is calmly laying an egg in the chicken coop. "We'll get it later so we can paint the plait," Helena announces. She has prepared dough that each child can make into a plait or dough animal.
While the little works of art are in the oven, everyone is free to move around the farm. They can visit the animals, throw cans, hammer in nails or just romp around. We parents enjoy the sun and watch the light-heartedness of the children. I don't have to describe this great experience in so many words: One family is already participating in this farm morning for the fourth time. There is hardly a greater compliment.
