Welcome to Switzerland's foremost alpine farming community
From 28 August to 9 September 2017, our winner will live and work at the Alp Hösel alpine farm. At around 1,500 meters above sea level, the farm looks far down on the picturesque Diemtigtal valley and commands breathtaking views of the characteristic Stockhorn mountain range.
The boss of the alpine farm, Res, will take personal charge of training our intern, whose development goals will include learning how to make cheese and acquiring the professional skills involved in keeping farm animals – which means getting up close to cows, calves and goats.
The Mecca of alpine farming excellence
It was no accident that we chose Diemtigtal as the location. With over 107 farms, where around 8,000 cattle graze on the meadows in summer, it is Switzerland's largest alpine farming community.
