"Apple orchards with bubbling springs and rushing streams."
We especially take care of the bees, our helpers and pollinators.
I fix the nesting box for small cavity-nesting birds.
A nice place for a break.
The apple trees are prepared for planting.
There’s one thing my organically produced Pinova and Bonita apples don’t have to worry about: the blue gold. The natural water worlds in Parcines have supplied our farmers with the necessary crystal-clear elixir of life for more than have a millennium. It’s a privilege to be a farmer in this healthy climate near the Parcines waterfall in the Rio Tel shore area.
Even though I only have a small agricultural business and farming is my second job, the energy of this place fills me with power and joy all around the year. Every year, numerous tourists and locals want to see our irrigation channels and our waterfall with a height of nearly 100 meters to experience this natural spectacle. I can enjoy the rushing of the turquoise-green water all year long.
My apples also benefit from this kind of Alpine wellness as they become especially juicy here. My fruits store part of the fresh mountain water and this is why they probably taste particularly good. Nature transforms into nature if it’s allowed to do so and if you listen to it. Here in Parcines, where even apple orchards like Kneipp baths, organic is virtually ideal for that.
Where I live
The bittersweet lady
Beauty meets acidity: This bright and smooth crossover between Topaz & Cripps Pink makes the pests stay away, therefore, it is especially popular in organic farming.
January - May
opaque radiant red colour on creamy background, homogeneous shape, very smooth shell
juicy and crunchy bite
aromatic with pronounced acidity
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.
January - July
Bicolour, yellow to greenish, at least 30% of the fruit is covered with a bright vermilion colour
