Tappeiner Paulina

BIO Organic Producer – Modulhof

“I count on nature.“

My story

Modul farm is in Ciardes on a sunny scree cone at the foot of the Monte Sole Mountain in Val Venosta. The Ladurner family has owned and run it for three generations and Paulina, with her husband and son, grows Gala, Golden Delicious, Red Delicious and Pinova in the area around her farm. Continuing education courses are particularly important for her because they deepen her understanding of natural interrelationships. Paulina sets great store in nature's ability to provide good things. She produces apple juice and organic wine from her own grapes, and organic cherries are her next project. The Ladurners have farmed organically for a good 15 years. "Actually," says Paulina, "organic farming was always my thing because I think that nature should not be too influenced by agriculture." That was the reason why Paulina converted her business to organics in 1996. Long conversations with other experienced farmers also convinced her. Now she is completely happy with her decision. "Because I am making a contribution to keeping nature healthy for the long term."

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
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
WA38 / Cosmic Crisp®
Heavenly taste
Heavenly attractive in appearance and taste. Pleasant summer fruitiness with aromas of green grass, kiwi and gooseberry.
February – April
Dark red-purple blush on a yellow-bright base color.
Very crunchy, particularly juicy and with a hard paring.
Sweet-sour; balanced taste. Aromas of green grass, kiwi and gooseberry.
