Plack Thomas

BIO Organic Producer – Lehengut

„Organic is my dream come true.“

My story

Thomas Plack's tenant farm is in the village of Colsano at the foot of the Monte Sole Mountain in Val Venosta. He took the reins here at the age of 19 after his father's untimely death. At the time he had already completed his training at the Laimburg technical college for fruit production, viticulture and horticulture in South Tyrol. Thomas now grows organic apples and makes organic wine on this family farm. He has chosen mainly red varieties in his orchards, which have been organic since 2006. Having a healthy product was a key consideration in converting the farm. "At the end of the day you want to be sure about what you're eating." That's what Thomas tirelessly works for all year round. He enjoys pruning the trees to manage structure and yield. He likes keeping an eye on his orchards and loves harvest time, work which is done entirely by hand. "When you see beautiful apples, you fill with pride."
