Pohl Kathrin

BIO Organic Producer - Kleinebenhof

“Organic for a better health.”

My story

The Kleinebenhof farm is situated in Vezzano at the foot of the Sun Mountain near Silandro, Val Venosta’s main place; its apple orchards, however, are situated at Silandro’s Monte Tramontana near the hamlet of Brugg. Kathrin Pohl has only run the Kleinebenhof farm together with her husband Andreas since lately. According to organic principles, of course: „I have known love for the nature, respect for the environment and an attentive way of working since I was a little girl. For us, this was the only way,“ says Kathrin.

Her family, in fact, runs another organic farm. So Kathrin has been familiar with the directives of organic production from an early age and has worked on her parents‘ farm for years. She further deepened her knowledge during her studies at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences in Vienna. Today she works as an apple producer with her husband Andreas: They dedicate themselves to the cultivation of Pinova, a very crunchy, bright cinnabar-red and yellow apple, and of Topaz, a juicy and extremely aromatic variety.

„Watching natural processes comes first when caring for the apple trees,“ explains Kathrin who’s a hundred percent convinced of organic production. Working in the nature and according to its rhythm give them great pleasure. This is why they look to the future optimistically and perfectly feel at ease in their healthy, vital environment.

Where I live

My harvest
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
refreshing with very crisp, juicy and firm pulp
Balanced proportion of sugar and acid
The beautiful acid
Topaz makes biting the sour apple worthy! The aromatic fruit impresses with a pleasant acidity and is also a common variety in organic farming.
January - May
basic yellow tone with red striped components, round shape with flattened calyx
crunchy pulp with pleasant cream colouring
acidified with sharp acidity
