THE TIME OF STRONG WOMENStrong women enjoy a long tradition at Geyerhof. Ilse Maier’s grandmother and great-grandmother took over the estate from their parents. The estate was then not only turned into a classic mixed farm with vineyards, crops, dairy cows and pigs, but also received an inn. Around the year 1900, Geyerhof was mainly destined for mining and a brickyard. First on the surface, and later underground, Oberfucha experienced three centuries of clay and loam mining in and around the village.
