BIO Organic Producer Management: Gerd Gurschler
„I believe in a better world for future generations.“
Ripe and ready for harvest
Assessing the size of the apples
Tscholl Peter’s organic apple orchard is situated in Coldrano in the municipality of Laces. Peter has entrusted his apple orchard to the expert hands of organic producer Gerd Gurschler who runs it together with his own farm. When he was younger, Gerd used to work as a mechanic but he was soon drawn back to working his own farm. He attended the Fürstenburg agricultural college as a mature student and converted his land to organic farming in 2002. These days he is helped out by his wife, father and grandfather who fully support the decision to convert. They see themselves as friends of nature with a duty to pass on a healthy and positive environment to the next generation.
