Organic Producer – Langstrein
"The future starts with you"
The insect hotels in my orchards are nesting and hibernation places for useful insects.
My sister Anna also helps during the harvest.
I transport apple bins at harvest time.
Our employee Elmar supports me in my work.
I’m very proud of my Nicoter/Kanzi® apples.
By adhering to the strict Bioland guidelines I voluntarily set rules that go far beyond the legal minimum standards for organic food. Above all, Bioland means NO to genetic engineering, chemical-synthetic fertilizers and pesticides.
When I took over the Langstrein farm in Laces from my mother, we both agreed that our Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Gala, Granny Smith, Bonita and Kanzi apples should be healthy and natural products from organic production. Our employee Elmar, who studied at Laimburg, the South Tyrolean technical college for fruit production, viticulture and horticulture, provides the necessary knowledge. Together we produce precious apples and promote soil fertility and biodiversity at the same time.
We already live at the farm of the future because our products contribute to a balanced and healthy diet, which is the basis for a high quality of life for us and our consumers. What could be better than that?
Where I live
The green gem
With its distinctive colour and acidic flavour, Granny Smith is unique in the apples’ world. Since the other apples could be green with envy!
November - May
bright green colour, spherical shape
compact and crunchy with white pulp
acidulous, very refreshing
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
Nicoter / Kanzi®
With its proper balance of sweetness and acidity, Nicoter / Kanzi® offers a harmonious taste experience, almost like yoga for the palate.
