The history of Wurzerlhofs is already hundreds of years old. But not always the Wurzerlhof the Wurzerlhof. Several generations ago, it is estimated between 18 and the 19th Century, the farm was purchased by our ancestors bought. Back then, the Court has the Vulgonamen "Muehlbauer".
But how it came to Wurzerlhof? My great-great grandfather collected efficient bark and roots and then dried on the pavement around the home. What he needed, but this, no one knows more about that decision and so the Vulgoname "Sempervivum".
In the following generations, the farm was run as a farm in the then usual form. 1965 on my parents took Francis and Mary Fürnschuß the yard. First focused on only one segment of agriculture and it has concentrated mainly on pig rearing and fattening pigs. 1988 my parents started to try out alternative crops, and so we worked until 1997 in the field of vegetable growing under plastic. But the polytunnel should not remain unused and we planted with raspberries.
The work on such alternative crops is very labor intensive and very difficult market. So we ended our "Himbeerära" 2002. But even then we were not idle. By the autumn of 1997, our yard course for the already widespread "Healthy school snacks" and many farmers followed our example. With pride, I want to emphasize that we were one of the first in Styria farms, who made his own cereal wholemeal pastry schools and our community supplied.
