    The Juckerhof is also very famous for its annual stunning pumpkin exhibitions. In fact, the Jucker family invites to discover these artistic autumn displays at all of their farms in Seegräben, Jona, Rafz and Kloten in Switzerland, and Ludwigsburg in Germany. This year’s topic in Switzerland: Pumpkin Jungle and Romans (at the Römerhof).
    And the theme in Ludwigsburg: Underwater. You can enjoy these extraordinary creations along with pumpkin carving workshops from the end of August until the end of October.

    IT IS MORE THAN A FARM – IT’S AN ADVENTURE FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY

    Jucker Farm is a place of recreation in the countryside. Besides the pumpkin festival, the farm has a farm market with seasonal fruits, vegetables and in-house made goods. You can also enjoy a rich seasonal buffet at the farm restaurant and bakery. Furthermore, kids would undoubtedly love a goat enclosure, a straw castle, blueberries for self-picking and a giant apple maze.

    Another unique attraction at the farm is a barefoot experience. You can walk on over ten different textures based on foot reflex zones to stimulate pressure points and bring relaxation.

    Good to know:

    • Getting there: 

    The Jucker Farm address: Dorfstrasse 23, 8607 Seegräben.
