„Widely scattered, but all at the doorstep and certified“

My story

Mazia is situated at an altitude of almost 1,600 meters. My fields are scattered around the Mazia valley. They are partly very steep and difficult to farm but the panorama at work is simply amazing: I can enjoy wonderful views of the Ortler massif, Mazia’s castle ruins and imposing Alta Val di Mazia.

I slowly converted my father’s dairy farm to vegetable cultivation. Different berries, especially raspberries, also play an important role. My wife and my two children help me a lot. We alternate the cultivation of cauliflower with the one of beetroot, leek, celery, potatoes and cabbage because that’s good for the soil.

I love weeding. Hardly any other activity requires and causes so much mental deceleration. You have to work carefully and without any hectic. Unfortunately, it’s very difficult to only live on agriculture in the mountains. I thus work in near Switzerland in winter. I’m particularly proud of our Bioland certificates for dairy farming and animal farming and for vegetable cultivation. Why? Because I feel like a full-time farmer and I know that I do good for my children.

Where I live

My harvest
The gentle lady
The white cabbage with discrete aroma represents 95% of the vegetables production in the Venosta Valley. By the way, it owes its floral name to a botanical peculiarity: cabbage is the state of the plant that has not yet blossomed.

These tubers have it all: Not only are they truly nutritious, but they also come in different versions: from soft to solid and compact, they grow in the Venosta Valley so that each recipe has the right potato for it.
