“Protect the environment to see it grow.”

My story

Castelbello at Val Venosta’s Monte Sole Mountain is the home village of Arthur Ilmer. As he already pursues another profession,  his organic apple orchards manages Georg Rechenmacher from Castelbello.

Georg attended the Fürstenburg agricultural college in South Tyrol and started working as a farmer when he was still at school. In 2010, the Mühlhaus farm converted to organic farming as a result of different courses, further specialized training and visits to apple orchards of other organic farmers.

For him, organic was a natural way to grow apples and to protect the traditional rural environment at the same time. The old horse chestnut tree in the middle of his apple orchard, which grew over time under the protection of nature, is the symbol of Georg’s conception. According to him, we have to leave nature as it is. Because our roots are strongly linked to the ones of nature.

Where I live

My harvest
Royal Gala
The elegant precocity
The tasty gala appears every summer in its reddish yellow shell and the new apple season begins.
September - March
smooth shell, spherical shape, slightly conical, pale yellow base colour with bright red and striped cover
crispy and juicy with firm pulp
refreshing, sweet with little acidity
Red Delicious
Red seduction
The image of the Red Delicious is difficult to resist. Seeing red can be really nice. And the red flavour is even more beautiful!
September - July
dark red colour, conical shape, oblong
juicy with very white pulp
sweet, very aromatic with relatively slight acidity
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.
October - September
greenish yellow to golden yellow
juicy with very fine and soft pulp
sweet with delicate acidity
