Agricultural produce, fresh or processed, is best purchased direct from the farmer or producer. Herbs, jams, tea blends, grappa and other traditional foods can all be found here.
The main focus at the Noafhof farm is on the production of organic grazing eggs. Thanks to the mobile chicken coop the hens can always enjoy fresh grass, which has a positive effect on the quality of the eggs.

The farm Obertimpflerhof is situated in Vöran, a village above Merano which lies 1,280 meters above sea level.
Franz keeps his pigs on the pasture and in the stable on and around his farm, where they have access to clear mountain air and a lot of space to run free. That and GMO-free feeding is the secret for farmer Innerhofer’s high quality pork meat. In traditional and artisan production it is processed to well-known South Tyrolean speck and other local pork specialties.
Products: speck, Kaminwurz (dried smoked sausages), smoked ham, salami - the opening days of the farm shop are listed below.
Farm visit with product tasting: upon request
At the Oberbrunnhof in Quadrat, Caroline Abler and Manuel Laimer sell home-made products and substantial delicacies. Both attach great importance to quality and rarity and have dared to take the step towards self-sufficiency for the sake of agriculture. The farm is home to cows (Tyrolean grey cattle), pigs and chickens. The animals are processed and refined by Manuel himself: in addition to fresh meat there are also home-made sausages and Speck. The milk is delivered to the "Sennerei Algund" dairy. The Oberbrunnhof's range of products is expanded with Caroline farmer's donuts and the traditional Paarlbrot from the wood-fired oven (every Saturday). Delicious jams and homemade cheese complete the range. Caroline and Manuel provide their guests with healthy, home-made products directly from the farm.
"Griasst enk, we are Caroline & Manuel!"
Caroline Abler grew up on the Niederhof farm and has worked on her parents' farm since she was a child. Her father taught her traditional Tyrolean cuisine and her mother taught her "Kropfn mochen" (making Krapfen - jam doughnuts) according to her grandmother's secret recipe.
Her path then led her to enter the hotel and restaurant industry for the first time, until she met her future husband Manuel Laimer and moved in with him to Oberbrunnhof.
Manuel took over his grandmother's farm at the age of 18 and has been cultivating it with great diligence ever since. Gradually, he worked hard to adapt and renovate the farm to the current conditions. For example, the "old" holiday home, which once belonged to the Oberbrunnhof farm, was rebuilt in 2017. Caroline and Manuel have been offering farm holidays since 2018, because they consider it important for them to combine agriculture and tourism.
Together with their three children Leo, Leni and Michl there is always something to do at the Oberbrunnhof. Once a week the tasks are clearly divided: Manuel bakes bread with the help of a family member and Caroline makes and bakes the farmers' doughnuts that are sold. In winter Manuel uses the time to make sausages and in summer Caroline transforms the fruit into delicious spreads and syrups. The products of Oberbrunnhof are produced with great care and love and guarantee freshness, regionality and quality.
At the historic Ansitz Mairhof we use our own sun-ripened fruit to make delicious, natural, home grown produce.

The natural ingredients of beneficial tea blends flourish in the herb garden. And local grape varieties are grown in the family estate’s vineyards, which are transformed with loving care and attention into exquisite Riesling, Grüner Veltliner, Lagrein rosé and Pinot Noir wines. Sophisticated wines to delight the heart and taste buds, which on request you are welcome to try out in the historic cellar.

The glorious blossoms are grouped together in bunches on stems about 5-15 cm long. The flower corolla has a bright blue color with yellowish white and occasional pink points
Lupines belong to the family of legumes (Leguminosae) and are thus related to such garden vegetables as beans and peas.

The Guggenbräu beer firm is located in Avigna/Afing at an altitude of 960 m and was first mentioned in 1379. It has been family-owned for 198 years. The main activity was dairy farming, products such as butter and eggs were sold on the market in Bolzano and milk was delivered to the dairy. Unfortunately, this activity was no longer profitable and so they looked for alternatives. The idea of brewing beer arose from the wild hop plants that have always been climbing up a wall above the courtyard. Grain was grown in the fields around the farm before, so it was nothing new for Hans. So again, barley and wheat were cultivated for the farm's own beer production. In 2019, 7 different aroma hops were grown, which can bring a wide variety of exciting aromas to beer. As we had all the raw materials we needed for a purely agricultural beer, we started selling in autumn 2020.
