Pohl Christian

BIO Organic Producer – Pohlhof

“Doing something good for nature is balm for your soul.”

My story

Christian Pohl's farm is in Tarres on an alluvial fan at the foot of the Tramontana Mountain. The Pohl farm used to have livestock and produce apricots. Now apples are the only crop. Christian works with his wife, Annelies, and his son and next-in-line, Tobias. Golden Delicious, Pinova, Red Delicious and Gala all ripen on the Pohl farm and in the future they will be supplemented by other red-skinned varieties. He was the first farmer in Tarres to convert to organics, back in 1997. With an education at South Tyrol's technical college for fruit production, viticulture and horticulture in Laimburg, Christian could never learn to love synthetic products, and he actually always rather liked weeds anyway. "We have to treat this earth well out of consideration for the generations to come!" The orchards are quite special. Christian creates sculptures out of natural materials and found objects. A sort of antenna takes care of "better reception of goodness from up above," and he has put a crown on top of his mother tree. There are full moon apples with extra energy which were harvested on a full moon night and there are also musical apples. They are especially pampered, with a soundtrack of Bach and Mozart during the growing season.
