The pasture barn needs to be replaced

Mountain farmers in Uri have to build a new grazing barn because it is outdated and not very animal-friendly. This requires support, as the farmers' own funds are not sufficient to finance the project. An ideal project that we at Landjä are happy to support.

Together with his wife, the farmer runs a farm with Swiss Brown Swiss cattle and a few sheep. The proactive farmer from Uri has continuously expanded the farm. He keeps the cattle in an animal-friendly playpen. In summer, the animals are on the alp. He shares the barn and machinery with his brother, which massively reduces operating costs. The farmers have three children of school age. With a little extra income, they earn important additional income. The farm buildings also include a grazing barn, where young animals are kept for a few weeks each spring and fall to graze the surrounding meadows. However, the tethered barn is dilapidated and no longer meets the requirements for animal welfare. The mountain farmers have to act. As renovation is hardly cheaper, they want to demolish the building and rebuild it. In addition to an animal-friendly playpen, a shed is to be integrated to provide space for machinery and equipment. This is precisely what the home farm lacks. Using wood from their own forest, sustainable materials are to be used for the functional building. However, the people of Uri cannot realize the project with their own funds. Support makes the sensible replacement building possible.

Here is the letter of thanks from the Brand-Jnderbitzin family, we wish you continued success and hope you can complete the project soon.
