Specifikationer
Lådans innehåll: 1 låda innehåller 2.7kg organic apples and pears
Sort: Renetta, Renoir, Gala, Golden Delicious, Pinova, Fuji, Stark, Granny Smith, Bella di Boskoop, Williams, Buona Luisa, Kaiser, Spadona
Each variety of apple and pear has its own unique characteristics; we will prepare a box, always putting two varieties of apples and one pear variety as indicated above
Organic farming certified by the European Organic Farming label since 1992
Contrary to other fruits, apples cannot be harvested gradually and need to be harvested all at once when having reached their full maturity; in order to avoid food waste and to ensure farmer’s economic stability, they are kept in cold storage, never longer than the current season (maximum of 12 weeks storage)
Depending on the month, we harvest the variety that is at the optimum point of ripeness; please refer to the description of the varieties and the corresponding shipping dates under "Additional analysis"
Our trees are not standardised factory products: every fruit is unique in appearance and size
Some fruits have spots on the skin due to a seed fruit fungus called 'scab': this is an aesthetic defect that, however, does not affect the quality of the fruit
Mixed box with approx. 1.8kg of apples and 0.9kg of pears
One kilo contains between 6 and 7 fruits
If you keep them in a fresh and airy place, they can last a 14 days in good condition (if you want them to last longer, you can keep them in the fridge)

I've been taking care of the land since I was a kid. The countryside, especially in the mountains, is much more than a job: it is a life choice, it is daily contact with nature, and for me it is something essential. I studied engineering but never finished my studies because, having to divide the time between study and work, I found myself behind with my exams and in the end I preferred to devote myself 100% to looking after the orchards and helping my father. It's a pity, but I wouldn't have wanted a career away from the fields anyway. On the farm, with my partner Isabella, we do a little bit of everything. She is the other pillar of the farm, since throughout the year her hands choose the apples one by one, dividing them according to size, colour and ripeness. We therefore take care of the harvest and sale together. When my father and mother are needed, they come to help us, but we tend to leave them free of tasks: they have already worked so much! Being a small, self-sufficient farm puts us up against so many small challenges that often require sacrifices of time (hobbies, relaxation), but apples cannot wait on the tree: they must be harvested, and at the end of it all they give a lot of satisfaction! Like being able to touch the fruit of so much work and keeping direct contact with consumers who appreciate our product and come back to buy again.

My father and mother bought the farm in the late 1970s, when it already had apple and pear orchards. My father started to run the farm following the principles of organic farming as early as 1982, despite the fact that few believed in the idea at the time. Times have changed, organic food has taken root and since the introduction of the European certification, we have been certified. So my family has been growing apples, pears and other fruits for two generations with love and dedication in the Non Valley, between the municipalities of Cles and Tuenno. The Non Valley is an inland valley with respect to the Adige Valley, the main connection axis between Italy and Germany. It is surrounded by mountains that measure over 2,000 metres, forests and pastures at medium and high altitudes and cultivated from 1,000 metres up to the valley floor. Summers that bring many hours of sunshine but with frequent rains and cold winters are the pedoclimatic conditions that give the unmistakable crunchiness to the apples. The apples cultivated here are so special that they have made this valley famous to the extent that while it was a poor area until 1950, today they have come to represent a significant source of income. This strong vocation over the years has led, especially on the valley floor, to the extension of plots of land that are not bordered by hedges or woods. My farm consists of small plots of mainly apples and pears and in smaller quantities of cherries, apricots and other fruit trees enclosed in oases of biodiversity created by the sowing of flowers for pollinating insects, the grassing of the rows and the forest that surrounds each plot. This approach, in addition to protecting biodiversity, helps me to limit the damage caused by diseases that spread in larger conventional plots, where extension is a risk factor because, once it starts spreading, the disease does not find natural barriers that block its expansion. Our trees need from between 600ml to 800ml of water. In the warmer months, my orchards also need to be irrigated. All plots have drip irrigation systems. We draw water from Lake Tovel (1,200 m) through a channel. My father and mother are still helping me today. During the harvest period, which runs from the beginning of September to November, I have the help of my parents, my partner and two seasonal workers. Thanks to our solar panels, we cover 80% of our electricity needs, including those of the cells where we store apples and pears once they have been harvested. On the farm, at the markets or through the web, I sell all my production directly to consumers and what I cannot sell, I transform into fruit juices.
