Really biological? Of course!

Venosta Valley trusts in the power of nature

Apples grow very well with purely natural farming techniques. This is demonstrated by our Val Venosta farmers every year when practicing biological agriculture and putting nature and environment protection in first place. By doing so, they not only take into account the EU guidelines, but also those of the Bioland or Demeter associations. The result is an aromatic apple which taste reflects the passion of our farmers for organic farming.
 
Traceability
Each step of production is controlled by accredited inspection bodies
Europe leading the way
We are one of the largest producers of organic apples in Europe.
Venosta Valley microclimate
The microclimate in the Venosta Valley is ideal for the farming of biological apples.

For the sake of biodiversity

Our organic farmers know that the biodiversity in their orchards is really important for the ecosystem. To promote it, they use only biological fertilizers and natural pesticides and thus maintain the ecological balance.
 
 
 
 

Really biological: Certifications

An apple can only be called "biological" if its farmer complies with strict regulations, for example, in the areas of product safety and environmental protection. Only then it will be certified, and it really deserves it after passing the strict controls!
 
 
 
 

Bioland: "Sustainable future for all"

Bioland Association members operate biologically in accordance with 7 established principles. Their use in Germany and South Tyrol promotes and protects soil fertility, biodiversity and weather.
 
 
 
 

Demeter: People and nature in harmony

Demeter is the oldest biological association in Germany. It follows strict biodynamic guidelines, which go back to the anthroposophical philosophy of Rudolf Steiner. Demeter is committed to soil sustainable management.
 
 
 
 

Biological from head to toe: Val Venosta vegetables

Much more than the fertile soil and sunny weather of the Venosta Valley do not need our vegetables. That's why we work without synthetic chemical aids and allow them to grow naturally. Simple and really biological.
