Productor BIO - Neuforsthof
„We create the best conditions for a colorful variety of flora and fauna.“
You only have to spend a few minutes at our farm at Naturno’s Monte Tramontana in all quietness and you will immediately see that diversity is at home here. My wife has more than 100 different medicinal and aromatic plants to make teas and tinctures. They attract many different insects with their scent: Not only bright butterflies or humming bees feel at ease at the Neuforsthof farm. We sometimes also discover insects that we have never seen before. You suddenly spot them between the lupins and clary sage or in the hedges of different heights that offer a nesting place to different bird species. Birds can find tasty berries in the elder trees, unless they have already had sea buckthorn, barberry or blueberries before.
Our large ginkgo tree seems to grow out of nowhere and protects the great diversity at the farm. It can become up to 1,000 years old and is almost a living fossil.
Our organic apple orchards are all situated around our farm. We do everything to guarantee soil fertility. We make seedings for wonderful flower strips between the rows, alternate mowing to allow insects to slowly move from the mowed row to the next one and accept that the harvest might not be that rich. But biodiversity is worth it for us. We also perceive this wealth in a cocktail of scents when apricots, peaches, magnolias and almonds blossom simultaneously or successively. Diversity attracts diversity. This is the only way to have an almond scent in the apple orchard and an apple scent at the organic farm. We are firmly convinced of that.
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 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
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
Explosion of intense flavour
The Fuji apple is named after a volcano, but inside the Japanese is very sweet.
November - May
pale pink to dark red, lightly striped colour on a greenish-yellow background, rounded shape
compact and very juicy with high sugar content
very sweet and aromatic
Scilate / envy™
The fresh surprise
For its juicy sweetness and light pear note, you can really envy the Scilate / envy™. In addition, you can share it very well with friends, because even if the apple likes to sunbathe, its pulp never gets tanned.
November - April
red background colour, slightly striped
very juicy, compact and crunchy pulp
sweet and juicy with a light pear aroma
Shinano Gold / yello®
The yellow wonder of taste
The alabaster-yellow colored delicacy radiates a touch of exoticism, because its fine pulp leaves delicate notes of pineapple, pear and citrus on the tongue. Tastes like holidays!
November - March

fine, compact, crisp and juicy pulp
intense, slightly exotic aroma with notes of pineapple, pear and lemon peel

Kissabel® is a simple and natural kiss at each bite. Genuine, unique and inviting.
