Happy hens lay
the best eggs

What do chickens need to be happy?

Sufficient space, healthy feed, occupation, a good stable climate, a quiet nesting place, fresh water and the opportunity to scratch and peck for all they're worth. This and much more is what we offer our hens and roosters on the Schlattgut.

Our chickens can move freely in the hen house and in the winter garden with the sand belts and the straw run. Weather permitting, they have access to the chickens' run and the meadow. The chickens can bathe and groom themselves in the sand baths provided. The winter garden and the meadow offer the chickens variety. Here they can scratch and peck as much as they like. In addition to the roosters, the modern underfloor heating and the sophisticated ventilation system ensure a good indoor climate.


You can buy Schlattgut free-range eggs directly from us in the farm shop and convince yourself of their quality right away. We look forward to your visit to the Schlattgut.

In agriculture, it is essential to think in cycles and to follow them. This is evident in fodder cultivation as well as in manure management, but also at the end of the life cycle of our chickens. Here, too, it is important for us to consciously close the circle.

That is why we are a member of GalloCircle. This organisation specialises in the production of high-quality food from laying hens. Everything is done with ecology and animal welfare in mind. The chicken nuggets in our farm shop come from their production.

The Living Circle – is a hand-picked collection of first-class hotels and restaurants in incomparably beautiful locations, run by dedicated hosts. Rice, vegetables, fruit and a whole array of exquisite products – including wine, of course – is whisked fresh from our own farms directly to your table. That is how we define luxury. That is The Living Circle – luxury fed by nature.
