About us

Synergy Village is a non-profit association that manages and runs the property in Feldbach, Kanton Zurich. The former traditional farm is a meeting place for local and international visitors. In our beautiful surroundings, visitors can explore the magical grotto with waterfall, idyllic gardens with secluded lounges and the lookout at the top of the property. In Synergy Village we rent out accommodation and function rooms in the traditional farm houses, and organise public events. The property also includes the KREIS-Haus research project – an almost self-sufficient tiny house that is operated as a field lab in collaboration with the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW). For the operation and maintenance of the property, we work with international volunteers and our association members. In doing so, we follow our principles of a future-oriented and sustainable way of working and living.


Welcoming the world

Creating synergies

Our History

The property of Synergy Village, also called “Bühler-Farm”, has been owned by the family Bühler for almost 600 years. The farm was run as a traditional farm for fruit-growing and livestock farming up to the seventies. After traditional farm was closed, the property was run by an alternative-minded community of family members and friends. After the community was fell apart around the year 2000, the property was poorly maintained and was more and more neglected for many years. Finally, the two siblings Devi and Ezra Bühler, the youngest generation of the Bühler family, could take over the property in 2014 and bring back new life to the place. In the first years of Synergy Village, Devi and Ezra invested their energy and heart into the restoration of the property, supported by numerous helpers. They renovated the buildings, took care of the gardens and built up the guesthouse and event location. Since 2019, the property is collaboratively managed by the Synergy Village Association. Up until today, the traditional buildings and artworks on the property are testimony of the long family history.
