Alpine Pastures

Pastures and Alpine Diaries in Upper Venosta Valley

Milk, Cheese and Yogurt from Upper Venosta Valley

Alpine pastures and diaries existed in the Upper Venosta Valley since at least since the late 12th century. Although they once were a vital pillar of rural life, they were located on important Alpine routes frequented by travelers, smugglers and pilgrims alike and the boggy, heath valleys have been avoided by most people until relatively recent times.

Today, 83 pastures are managed in the Venosta Valley with a total area of 37,000 hectares and at an altitude of more than 2,000 m. The animals are treated according to species-appropriate methods, holding up to 10 cows per stable and GM-free animal feed, including during the winter months. The result is first-class butter, milk and fresh cheeses, showcasing numerous local award winning, Alpine dairy cheeses.
The pastures and dairies are popular stops for hikers and mountain bikers alike, offering original high-quality local cuisine, refreshments in summer and hot beverages in winter. Spacious sun-terraces are ideal for relaxing all year round. The pastures and dairies contribute immensely to the conservation of the traditional local food culture.
