Tumler Eugen

BIO Organic Producer – Sennhof

“Healthy food in a healthy environment.“

My story

Senn farm belongs to the Tumler family and is in Covelano at the foot of the Tramontana Mountain. The highest marble quarry in Europe is here, at 2,250 metres above sea level. The Senn orchards are 1,500 metres below. This broad, flat landscape is criss-crossed by ancient irrigation channels called "Waals". Eugen Tumler has owned the family farm since 2007. Before the Second World War, apricot trees were planted here. Eugen has added kiwis, pears and plums, as well as Golden Delicious, Gala, Red Delicious, Pinova and Jonagold apples. His parents and his son help him in his work, which allows him time for his second job, as an organic fruit farming consultant. Eugen and his parents converted to organic farming back in 1999. Now he knows exactly how to deal with beneficial fauna and working the soil. He says that the sustainability of organic farming has got a lot to do with very strict monitoring. That is what ensures healthy food, and by extension, a healthy environment.

Golden Delicious
The classic delicious
Golden Delicious is our main variety and, therefore, the queen of Val Venosta apples. That the most popular apple has a real quality, can be seen in its lovely red cheek. By the way, this is typical of fruits on a hillside.

The Val Venosta resistant
The Pinova with its red vermilion-red skin is a typical apple of Val Venosta. Not only is it colourful, it also has a very balanced flavour. Thanks to its long durability, it offers you unlimited fruit enjoyment until the summer season.

Balanced proportion of sugar and acid
Apricots
The delicate provocateurs of the palate
The delicate fruits with soft shell and hard core love the temperate and dry weather of the highlands of Venosta Valley. That is why they can develop their unique aroma especially well there, and as they have an extra dose of beta-carotene they also ensure good vision, healthy skin and a strong defence against infections.
Availability
mid July - mid August
Appearance: 
round, slightly oblong, velvety orange to orange-red skin, 4-8 cm in diameter
Features: 
soft and juicy flesh
Taste: 
sweet, very aromatic
