Wellenzohn Ägidius

BIO Organic Producer – Weißgarberhof

„People are like plants: this is why their diet is so important.“

My story

Glorenza is the smallest town in the Alps and home to Weißgarber farm, which harks back to times long past. It is located on the mediaeval Gerber lane and originally only tanners (known as Gerber in German) were permitted to ply their trade here. Ägidius Wellenzohn runs Weißgarber farm nowadays. He has a broad education, having attended agricultural high school; the South Tyrol technical college for fruit production, viticulture and horticulture; and tertiary level courses in agricultural economics in Innsbruck. He grows Topaz and Red Delicious apples, spelt, wheat, potatoes and vegetables. He also has a kitchen garden and a traditionally planted orchard with ancient trees grown from seed, and heritage apple varieties. The family bake their own bread and sell all their own products at their farm shop on site. Ägidius has grown a large customer base over the years. Perhaps it is because he manages without spraying anything at all. "Feeding," he says, "is the most important thing, the cornerstone of good health, and that applies to plants as well as to humans." That was the reason why Ägidius signed up to organic farming back in 1988. His own approach to caring for the soil, and his use of purely organic fertilizers are the building blocks he uses to grow natural products which really nourish people.
