    ErlebnisSennerei Zillertal Dairy & Show Farm

    What is made from milk and how does it get into the carton,...?
    Adults and children can experience the entire hay milk production path at the ErlebnisSennerei Zillertal Dairy. Children can see how cheese is made at the Show Dairy, where it matures and how it is looked after, how filling machines work and much more. 

    A film is screened in the Show Farm barn, which shows how milking functions and why hay milk is so valuable! But at the end of the day, discovering what the animals get up to in real life is even more interesting - and there is plenty of opportunity for doing just that. Cows, sheep, chickens and the goats in particular are inherently curious and will come and nuzzle visitors, hoping for some attention. Another film can be seen at the Bee Pavilion – over one million bees live at the Show Farm and love buzzing around the many flowers all around!
