Our farm breakfast
In 2014 we built new apartments and rooms with a beautiful breakfast room and a large terrace.
A separate guest kitchen has been built in the farmhouse so that guests can get themselves a drink at any time. An antique cabinet with books and games serves as a farm library for young and old.
For breakfast, there is farm produce, such as milk, honey, eggs, bacon, fruit, fruit spreads, juices, jellies, nuts and sweet treats throughout the year. At the weekend the farmer treats guests to homemade cakes made with home-grown fruit.
Naturally, there is also fresh produce, such as cheese from Boarbichl farm in Scena, yoghurt from the dairy in Merano, regional sausages and various mueslis. Our coffee machine provides guests with a choice of espresso, caffè macchiato, latte macchiato, regular coffee or hot chocolate. We also offer high-quality tees from South Tyrol in tea bags.
Take a seat on the magnificent terrace and enjoy breakfast with a magnificent view.
You can of course also book the apartments with breakfast.
Breakfast is served between 7:45 am and 9:45 am.
Fresh farm produce
You can of course also buy our products in our farm shop.
The 4 cultivated hectares of the farm are mainly used for growing fruit. Our main crop is apples: Golden Delizious, Red Delizious, Elstar, Gala, Braeburn, Gravensteiner, Fuji, Kanzi, Envy, Jonagold e Pink Lady.
In autumn we harvest the apples and make apple juice. We also cultivate some pear varieties, such as Williams, which is delivered to the distillery, as well as Kaiser Alexander and Hordenpont.
We have also have peaches, nectarines, cherries, apricots, plums, greengages, kiwis and figs, some of which we use to make jam. We also have almond, walnut and chestnut trees on our farm.
Our own bee colonies provide high-quality honey and pollinate our fruit trees.
Fresh fruit and vegetables grow on our farm from May to November.
Below the mausoleum in Schenna lies our small vineyard, where we grow 90% Vernatsch (Schiava) and 10% Lagrein grapes on traditional pergola trellising. There are around 500 vines.
The vineyard is on a relatively steep, south-facing, sunny slope. All the work is done by hand: pickers even carry the harvested grapes up from the vineyard on their backs.
We wet cure our bacon with salt, pepper, garlic and juniper for a week and smoke it for three weeks in the smokehouse. After being left to air dry for six months, we eagerly cut and taste the product for the first time.
The farm also includes 9 hectares of forest, with spruce, larch, and hardwood, which serves as timber for building and as valuable firewood for those cold winter days.
