Changing Faces of Paech’s Fachwerk Barn on Beerenberg Strawberry Farm

Commencing at St Paul’s Lutheran Church the story behind the Lutheran’s escape from Prussian across the world to South Australia will be explained.

You will then be guided on a 10min picturesque walk to the recently restored fachwerk Barn. Expert, Chris Hein will share architecture and archaeology of the barn and matriarch Carol Paech, its changing usage on their Beerenberg Family Farm.

The distinctive fachwerk barn is one of Carl Faehrmann’s masterpieces. Roomy, with a threshing floor also used for bagging grain, the barn was built by a real craftsman, unlike the very early buildings of Hahndorf erected by families desperate for immediate shelter.

Visitors will then go to the Beerenberg Farm Shop where tastings will take place. Stay on at the Farm or return to the village with your guide.

A couple of special surprises included.
