Short descriptionFor various reasons the current location of the sheep farmers in Weiz will be abandoned in autumn 2017. Until then, a new business location will be built in Obergreith in the municipality of Mitterdorf. With the construction of the show and adventure cheese factory of the sheep farmers of Weiz an interactive, modern and experience-oriented sales area is created.
The show and experience area in the interior of the plant location conveys different key points on the topic "sheep" and provides insights into the production and ripening rooms of the products of the sheep farmers of Weiz.
The pleasure shop enables an interactive, sensory and experience-oriented purchase of the products.
At the end of the project, unique guided tours will be held and the sales area will be opened. Around 10,000 visitors are expected to visit the show and adventure cheese factory every year, offering them a unique experience.
