Ingo Metzler family built the first walk-in farm in Vorarlberg, Austria. Here they produce high quality diary, with mainly goat milk. The whey is used to make very affordable high quality natural cosmetics of all kinds. If you are in Egg – Bregenz Forest Vorarlberg, you can visit the factory, have a guided tour, enjoy a different cheese tastings and also do some shopping at the factory’s shop.
Visiting Vorarlberg, was really curious to see also some cosmetics. So beside the Organic plants company Susanne Kaufmann, that I previously wrote about, we also visited the modern Ingo Metzler Factory in Egg.
So take a look at what how it was our:
Ingo Metzler Whey Cosmetics and Diary Factory And Farm Tour
First we met Magdalena, one of the daughters-in-law of the head of the family and also the founder of Ingo Metzler Company. I like family businesses. Mr. Metzler senior has four sons, each one involved in the business, in different fields: the farm, distribution and logistic, marketing, cosmetic factory. Magdalena is extremely dedicated and were also joined by her daughter a delightful toddler of only 2 years old. And we go!
First stop was in the farm, where we saw the animals. The small pet cuddle area has a special draw for the little ones.
Soon after we went to see how the cheese is made. We were explained each step of the process.
The farm is walk-in, energy-efficient and sustainable
With this project which runs under the name of NATURHAUTNAH (nature close-up), the Metzler family has created a place of energy-efficient and sustainable farming, where visitors can learn about farming processes hands-on. The project has won several national and international awards. www.molkeprodukte.com
Cosmetics factory: is spotless!
After visiting the diary lines, we went to the cosmetic factory and then to the warehouse. The cosmetics are not animal tasted and do not contain chemical or dyes. They are made from the whey produced after the milk is processed. The range is very wide, so you will find everything for hair, face, body and wellness.
What is also nice coming here is that you can do your shoppings in here. The cosmetics are in different pack size, bulk or travel. Beside cosmetics, you will find herea wide assortment of farm products, from cream cheese to whey products. And also products from other local producers: snaps, dried fruits etc.
