Our gourmet forge is located in a building full of history and stories. In the chronicle you can see when who took over the forge, as well as interesting details about the respective time periods. It was built in 1682 by Andreas Falckenbacher and taken over by Balthasar Falckenbacher in 1709. In 1722 it was the turn of Schmidt Faltenbacher, who took over the house and 1/16 of the farm. The Pirk altar boy Martin Faltenbacher succeeded him in 1794. In 1812 a novelty: a woman, Elisabetha Wittib, Matthias Faltenbacher's wife, took over the forge as a master farrier. In 1840 the business went back to a man, Elisabetha's son Martin, who owned an empty house, a house, a stable, a barn, a blacksmith's workshop, a courtyard and a grass garden. Other owners were: Gregor (1852), Georg (1864) and Jakob Faltenbacher (1888). In 1928, Josef Faltenbacher, mayor of Pirk and namesake of the Pirk school, took over the forge before another Josef followed in his footsteps in 1966. In 1992 he made room for the 3rd Josef Faltenbacher, who transformed the forge into a steel construction company and is also responsible for the transformation from the old forge into the gourmet forge.
