Modulhof der Tappeiner Paulina

BIO Organic Producer – Modulhof

“I count on nature.“

My story

Modul farm is in Ciardes on a sunny scree cone at the foot of the Monte Sole Mountain in Val Venosta. The Ladurner family has owned and run it for three generations and Paulina, with her husband and son, grows Gala, Golden Delicious, Red Delicious and Pinova in the area around her farm. Continuing education courses are particularly important for her because they deepen her understanding of natural interrelationships. Paulina sets great store in nature's ability to provide good things. She produces apple juice and organic wine from her own grapes, and organic cherries are her next project. The Ladurners have farmed organically for a good 15 years. "Actually," says Paulina, "organic farming was always my thing because I think that nature should not be too influenced by agriculture." That was the reason why Paulina converted her business to organics in 1996. Long conversations with other experienced farmers also convinced her. Now she is completely happy with her decision. "Because I am making a contribution to keeping nature healthy for the long term."
