The Bramlgut in Göriach was acquired by Christina and Johann in 2010. The economic basis of the farm is dairy production with its own breeding program. 14 dairy cows and 25 young cattle are housed in the new loose-house stable. Forestry is the third leg of the operation.
An important source of income is the rental of three high-quality furnished apartments. The quiet location on the outskirts in the Lungau Valley with hiking opportunities lends itself to this activity. In 2015, Christina Bauer began to share her passion for baking. Christina created a Facebook page “Easy baking and cooking with Christina” and supplied the reader with tried and tested, everyday recipes and images. In May, she completed her training to become a seminar farmer women (“Seminarbäuerin”) and started offering baking courses for consumers of all ages. Supporting her consumers over the Internet and holding courses at the farm can be very easily combines with the work on the farm and raising children at home. Mrs Bauer offers baking courses in her own kitchen on the farm. The application for participation in courses is done via Facebook and online. Each course participant shapes their own pastry to get a better feel for the dough. The baking is done with regional cereals and simple ingredients that are widely available. All the rolls specified in the recipe brochure are easy to make, clearly described and all important preparation stages are shown with step-by step instructions. The baking is done with common household appliances, so that everyone can replicate the baking at home.
The food blog “Baking with Christina” (http://backenmitchristina.at) serves as preparation and follow-up for the courses. By using regional cereals in the courses, the course participants are invited to purchase food products from the region. Thus, awareness of agricultural products is raised to influence buying and eating habits.
