oh it´s been a while since my last blog post – well, i guess i was too lazy or maybe it had to do with summer outside. anyways: as i am sitting here on this rainy monday, having pumpkin soup on my stove at 10 in the morning (it´s never too early for pumpkin soup i guess) i am reminiscing about yesterdays trip to stadtflucht bergmühle where a group of people was invited by noan olive oil. oh and it was a great day with perfect food and weather, one of the last days of summer i guess.
so let me take you on a journey and show you how it looks 30 minutes outside of vienna:
at the train station we were picked up by a tractor. cause, we are on the countryside and thats how you get around here, obviously.
a big plus: you don´t have to do your hair cause it will get destroyed by the wind anyways.
the dog had fun on the tractor too i guess
after a quick ride, we arrived in front of the place. and this was the view. yes, there is an instagram filter on it, but as you can see it would be really pretty as well without it.
we went to some fields to do a little light harvesting. meaning, we could take stuff from the fields – which was not actual work of course.
back home, sometimes SOME PEOPLE steal corn from the fields – here we were allowed to do it. it was a little irritating at first but we soon got into the “children of the corn” mode
you see? corn is a perfect match to an outfit
we also went to a pumpkin field which reminded me of yayoi kusama
i got this pretty green baby
they also have vineyards with a lot of grapes on them. of course, all of that stuff is organic.
checking the green ones and the blue ones i opted for the blue ones. cause they were a little sweeter. (notice the new trend for fall/winter: a cob of corn worn as a bracelet)
after all that hard work it was time for a sip of – olive oil of course
we learned a little bit about how to taste olive oil by the founders of noan. side note: their kids, noah and anouk were the name givers of their product.
after the oil tasting it was time for more food tasting
in a very serene setting
food is ready when the bell rings. i could get used to that.
beans with hemp seeds from their garden
oh and there was more food like fish and boar and stuff but i was too busy eating and talking to take pictures. sorry for that.
after that it was time to head back to the train station
not with a tractor but with a convertible. good times!
