Alpine farming and dairy farming are inseparably connected with the cultural history of South Tyrol and in particular the Venosta Valley. In former times, the pastures in the marshy and dangerous lowlands were limited, so the South Tyrolean valleys were avoided by travelers and farmers. Alpine huts were already hosting travelers in ancient times, and today they make an indispensable contribution to the preservation of the traditional Venosta Valley cultural landscape.

On the mountain farms of Venosta Valley, animals are kept in a humane way until today. There are about 12 cows housed per stable, which are fed with OMG-free food also during the winter. The result is first-class butter, milk, cream cheese and numerous award-winning cheeses from the pastures of Venosta Valley.

First-class Alpine huts invite hikers and bikers during summer and winter to take a break and taste the many local specialties from Venosta Valley cuisine.
