What we're proud of

In the Dolomites region Kronplatz, you'll find  high-quality foods and handcrafted articles for daily use in Sterzing and environs, as in the rest of South Tyrol. Many producers sell straight from the farm where you can try the treats and find out what the high quality criteria are for lamb and pork in Wippland. Producers in the cooperative have committed to sustainable animal husbandry including lots of free-roaming in the fields and meadows and the use of natural animal feed. During a town or village stroll, you might be lucky enough to observe craftsmen at work and watch over their shoulder as they make jewellery, wooden sculptures or baskets. Hand craftsmanship has a long-standing tradition in South Tyrol. This allows us to create products that are only available here.

The smells that drift from the Ladin cuisine recall grandmothers' kitchens. Like the scents of the traditional dish called "Panicia",  a barley soup with vegetables and meat served with slight variants across South Tyrol. But the Ladin cuisine offers far more delicacies: the local dumplings "Bales" , potato dumplings "Gnoch" and fritters filled with spinach and ricotta cheese "Turtres". You can also try a popular dish known as "Grestl", roasted potatoes and veal cut into pieces or "Fortaies", spiral fried pancakes. Besides tasting delicious, the "Jufa", a kind of milk pudding that is traditionally eaten in a pot and with a spoon, is likewise an authentic experience.
