Yesterday I visited together with the Miss Earth Switzerland organization and Sarah (Miss Earth Switzerland) the farm Muriboden at the beautiful place Riggisberg in the canton of Bern.
While bright sunshine, we arrived at the Muribodenhof of the family Böhlen and received a warmly welcome. After we had enjoyed the peaceful and natural environment.
Afterwards we went to the regional and delicious lunch for the flax field of the Böhlen family.
Sarah immediately joined and helped us weeding between the linseed plants. The Böhlen family produces linseed, which is extremely healthy and also very interesting as a plant. For the linseed plants bloom only about 10 days a year, every day at noon the plants bloom, then the petals fall to the ground. This every day. The linseeds can then be harvested at a later stage.

After the work, comes the pleasure. The dear Christine surprised us with a homemade strawberry cake made of fresh strawberries.
On the farm they are living happy animals like two donkeys (mother and daughter), cows and calves, two pigs, goats, birds that have built their nests and young kittens with their mommy. In the Muriboden you can sleep in the straw or in rooms, this is not only popular for school classes, also for families or pilgrims on the Way of St. Jakob.
After the eventful day at Muriboden, we were given a small wellness time as well. The barefoot trail is a force place. It is snail-shaped and barefoot runs over the various subsoils. This gives you a mechanical foot massage. According to the ritual, one should go inside the path of the path and think about the current day or the last time. Once you are in the middle, you have to admit the future and focus on your own thoughts before you go back.
After walking the barefoot path you can relax your feet in a beautiful flower foot bath. Afterwards, we were also allowed to try the self-made care cream by Christine.
Happy and well-nourished, we said good-bye to our cheerful hosts. Until next time, we will definitely come back.
