BIO Organic Producer - Niedereben
"Organic out of conviction and passion."

Elisabeth Magitteri lives in Rablà at the entrance of Val Venosta with her family. She and her husband Herbert are organic farmers out of conviction and grow varieties that are best able to integrate themselves into Val Venosta’s natural cycles.
She farms according to EU guidelines but also follows the Bioland association rules on top. They stipulate that only organic fertilizers may be used and insist on gentle farming methods for working the soil. Elisabeth says, “this is the only way that our apples can grow to be completely healthy and look good at the same time. The difference in taste is obvious as well”. Elisabeth Magitteri’s apples are intensely flavoured, especially crisp and juicy.
Elisabeth’s goal is to produce adequately and keep the natural world the way it is at the same time.
