„Preserving nature like it is.“
The farmer likes thinning out apples in the sunshine
Farmer Daniel is happy about his daughter’s visit in the apple orchard
Taking care of the orchards
Everybody helps when it’s time to thin out
Daniel ties the branches with many apples
Daniel Ladurner lives with his family in the village of Stava in the municipality of Naturno, but his organic fruit farm is in Val Senales. The fatc that this landscape was already inhabitable 5,300 years ago is proved by the world-famous Ötzi, the iceman who was found in the valley head by the glacier. Daniel is a young farmer who grows organic apples which comply to EU regulations and also to those of the Bioland Association. To do this he only uses organic fertilizer and he pays particular attention to adopting cultivation methods that protect the soil in order to maintain the equilibrium of this sensitive mountain area. Every time harvest comes round, he is proud of the way his apples look. The mountain sun makes them especially sweet and the temperature variation between day and night, which is particularly pronounced in the Val Senales, means that the apples ripen for longer and become more crisp. Daniel's goals are clear, he wants tasty, wholesome apples and he wants to preserve nature the way it is.
Where I live
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
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 - June
Bicolour, yellow to greenish, at least 30% of the fruit is covered with a bright vermilion colour
refreshing with very crisp, juicy and firm pulp
Balanced proportion of sugar and acid
The sweet seducer
Vitamins and healthy minerals are naturally present in the juice of our cherries. But our farmers make them unique: they allow them to patiently unfold their magnificent aroma and their complete sweetness and then harvest them lovingly by hand. It is really good to eat cherries from the Venosta Valley farmers.
mid July - mid August
round heart-shaped, bright dark red to violet-black with very long stems
