Kobler Augustin

BIO Organic Producer – Etschhof

„An organic apple is the perfect link between man and nature.“

My story

Not far from the Stelvio Pass, in Prad, Augustin Kobler has an organic farm which he manages with his family. Organics are not just a farming or subsistence technique for him. "Being organic is a way of life which subsumes us into its own cycle," explains Augustin. And you can see what he means on his farm. He grows Gala, Topaz and Golden Delicious in his orchards, which are left to grow as nature intended. The farm also has sheep, cows and horses. The manure produced by the livestock is time-consumingly composted and processed so that it can be used in the orchards as a natural, organic fertilizer. Augustin converted to organic farming in 2005. It was the concept of the cycle which convinced him to make the move. For him, organics means closed, natural cycles. And the taste of his apples is testament to human and natural activity in perfect harmony.

My harvest

The elegant precocity
The tasty gala appears every summer in its reddish yellow shell and the new apple season begins.

The classic delicious
Golden Delicious is our main variety and, therefore, the queen of Val Venosta apples. That the most popular apple has a real quality, can be seen in its lovely red cheek. By the way, this is typical of fruits on a hillside.
