    Cheesfactory Gatscher
    Kiens/Chienes, Dolomites Region Kronplatz/Plan de Corones

    Production takes place every two days and starts in the morning, both in summer- and wintertime. The fresh milk together with the live lactic acid bacteria is brought to a moderate temperature. For the fitness cheese we use 50% whole milk and 50% skimmed milk; for the other cheeses we use whole milk. The rennet is added and after curdling this mass is cut into small cubes (cheese curds) and filled into the moulds. The spices and herbs are added, which give the cheeses the special flavour of the "Gatscher cheese". For the next 24 hours, the product remains warm to ensure adequate fermentation and the right degree of acidity. Then the loaves are put into the salt bath, stored and cared on spruce boards in the cellar. The cheese is stored for between three and six months for the mountain cheese, five weeks for the fitness cheese and six weeks for the others.

    The scheme to promote mountaineering villages in the Alpine regions supports environmentally-friendly, natural tourism. The network unites villages with a thriving natural and cultural landscape, which have been spared major technical innovations and where mountains and mountaineering are an integral part of the identity.

The living traditions and customs offer you an insight into the active village community, and a stop-off to wander round the castle ruins at the entrance to the village brings the dreaded Matsch robber-barons back to fearsome life.

    Kräuterschlössl herb castle
    Latsch/Laces, Vinschgau/Val Venosta
    The herb castle in Coldrano attracts attention from afar. The radiant yellow of the facade seems like a splash of colour, a shooting one, in the midst of large-scale, green and groomed apple orchads. It is indeed a small paradise for the senses, a botanical world of its own. Nature in spades, a sea of blossoms aromatically fragrant, spreads out in the herb garden and lovingly encloses the show garden of the herb castle. However, herbs are not only to be found on the ground at the herb castle, but also at lofty heights. On the roof terrace we have set up a love nest, the love garden. Everything is free accesible to everyone, 7 days a week.
    In the herb fields in Coldrano (700m above sea level) and Taufers/Tubres (1.400m above sea level) the herbs are cultivated, harvested, dehumidified and refined into quality products from 3 generations with much diligence and love. In keeping with the ecological cultivated methods of the "Bund alternativer Anbau" (association of alternative growers), plant growth is promoted trough targeted soil cultivation, diversity in cultivation and oragnic fertiliser.
    The variety in the fields is as rich as the product selection in the farm shop - a real treasure trove for the environmentally conscious:
    -herbs, tea and spice blends, herbal salt, pasta, vinegrads and oil
    -honeys and fruit honeys from our own apiary
    -fruit spreads, syrups, chocolates and sweets
    -healing oinments, cosmetics and perfume

    Tradition has it that this vine was destroyed by the French during the pillaging of the courtyard during the Napoleonic Wars in 1809. When the farm was rebuilt in 1810, the vine began to sprout again. The base of the grapevine has a circumference of 106 cm. This formerly widespread grape varietal can now be found almost solely on old stock located on the viticultural fringes.

    The house wine Vernatsch, a dark Cuvée, Rosé and Müller Thurgau are offered for sale. Tasting of farm-fresh produce in the adjoining tavern is possible.

    One egg is the same as another. Or not?
    Our organic chickens live in the mobile stable in the middle of our meadows, so our chickens get fresh grass, air and sun. We also keep dual-purpose chickens. With “dual use” we mean eggs & meat, which means that the meat of our organic chickens is also used as soup chicken after their active time as laying hens and the male chicks are also raised. Unfortunately not a matter of course these days …But for us an affair of the heart! ♥
    Even if ethical and sustainable use of our earth’s resources is important to you, eggs from dual-purpose chickens are a matter of course! Why do organic meadow eggs cost more than normal free-range eggs? The workload with a mobile stable is greater because it gets a new place in our meadows around every 2 weeks and additional feed and water have to be brought to the stable.
    In addition to the higher costs for the purchase and rearing of organic laying hens themselves and the larger land requirement per animal provided for by the guidelines for organic agriculture, it is above all the costs for the feed that have an impact on the books. Grains and pulses in organic quality are much more expensive than corresponding products from conventional cultivation.

    Our chickens only get certified GMO-free organic feed. Due to the good feeding, the fresh grass and the great freedom of movement in our meadows and fields, our organic meadow eggs simply taste better and contain a particularly large number of vitamins (A, D, E), healthy omega 3 fatty acids and carotenoids. That is what is special about our organic meadow eggs!
