The Egarterhof is located 1130m above sea level in the Gareit (Gereuth) district. The name Egarter (egerte) originally meant fallow. It has been supported by documents since 1313.
Today the Egarterhof is a typical farm in the mountains with cows, pigs, chickens, bunnies and cats. The farm is located two kilometers from the village and seven kilometers from Brixen.
