Quality organic production

The Friedrich August is not only a splendid refuge. On the surrounding land the owners also practice organic farming. Among the cattle, the most valuable breed is the Highland. Originally from the cold and damp Scottish uplands, Highland cattle adapt easily to the cold winters of the Dolomites because they can survive at high altitudes even at very cold temperatures (as low as minus 40°C). The breed’s heavy coat allows it to maintain its body temperature without having to resort to a thick layer of subcutaneous fat. This is why its meat is lean, low in cholesterol and of excellent quality.

The feed used for the Highland cattle is almost exclusively grass and hay of the highest quality. To enhance and safeguard the pastures, a breed of Tibetan cattle, the Yak, has also been introduced into the herd, which comes from a cold and rocky environment and is accustomed to tough grazing conditions.

The cattle graze freely outdoors all year round and are fed exclusively with grass and dried forage produced according to the criteria set for organic farming at an altitude of over 1500 metres. Calves are suckled by their mothers for 8-10 months. In these areas the meadows are rich in flowers and grasses with medicinal properties.

In addition to cattle, Vallesi goats, a native breed, are also raised for the production of excellent cheeses and cured meats.
