Gufler Martin

BIO Organic Producer – Moarntorgglhof

„Let's live the present like we wish our children to live the future.“

My story

The Moarntorggl farm is in Silandro, the sun-drenched administrative centre of the Val Venosta. This is a family business which Martin Gufler's father managed before him. The apple orchard has rows of Golden Delicious, Gala, Pinova, Braeburn, Red Delicious, Fuji and Topaz and is truly exceptional because it is made up of terrace after terrace which climb up the steep slope. These steps in the mountain are supported by impressive natural stone walls, which provide a habitat for many natural organisms. Martin started to experiment with organic farming back in 1989. In the beginning he started with half a hectare and because the results were completely convincing, he converted the entire farm four years later. "I wanted to work in a more sustainable and more considerate way. And I wanted to leave something for the next generation which they can still use." His chestnut grove is a perfect illustration of his take on life: it is a natural buffer zone which is completely left to its own devices.
