Götsch Gerhard

„I would like to offer a healthy product“

My story

TheKrebsbachhoffarm with its apple orchards is situated in sunny Ciardes at the foot of Val Venosta’s Sun Mountain. Gerhard Götschtook it over from his father. After graduating from the Laimburg technical college for fruit production, viticulture and horticulture in South Tyrol he manages the Krebsbachhoffarm alone, only needing the help of extra pairs of hands during very busy periods: In summer, for instance, when apples that are too small are eliminated from the tree so that the other apples can grow better. Or during the harvest season when Golden Delicious, Gala and Red Delicious are picked from the trees. Apple producer Gerhard had watched organic apple production for some time with great interest before he finally decided to produce his apples according to organic guidelines: „I would like to offer a healthy and natural product.“ Working in and with the nature is very exciting for Gerhard all around the year. And when all his apples are harvested in autumn, he can look back with satisfaction: „Then you can see the result of the work through the entire year.“ He is still in harmony with his decision to become organic „because in my view, the natural production is much healthier and more sustainable“.
