Tscholl Meinrad

BIO Organic Producer – Sägehof

“Organic? A healthy break of contemplation.“

My story

Säge farm is on the Monte Sole Mountain in Silandro and it has been run by three generations of the Tscholl family. It is exceptional in that its impressive 1,100 metres of altitude make it one of the highest fruit farms in the Val Venosta. Meinrad did an apprenticeship and worked for a long time as a mason. He only took over the farm from his parents much later. Nowadays, he is helped by his wife and children. Relatives also come to help with the picking during the busy harvest period. Meinrad especially enjoys winter pruning. That is when he can shape the trees and directly affect their yield. Besides, it leaves a lot of time for thinking. He has run Säge as a organic-certified farm since 2006. He is now supplementing the apples by farming cherries and rye in a way which is close to nature. Meinrad is looking forward to the new challenges this will bring. Because healthy food is a basic requirement for a good life.
