Our philosophy - vision - mission
 
Since 1982 we grow herbs at ‘Pflegerhof’.
 
DOur pioneering farm has switched to the principles of organic farming as early as 1980. Ever since then we have cultivated our produce according to the strict rules of organic farming.
 
Mixed culture and circular flow recycling management
 
The herbs are grown in a sunny location in the form of mixed cultivation .
 
Because of this cultivation method, the plants stay healthy and complement themselves mutually in a positive way. The circular flow recycling principal is another important goal of us.
 
From the seeds to the final product
 
With lots of love, best farmer’s skills and commitment, our herbal products are produced
from the seed up to the final product directly on our farm (only exceptions are crèmes and oils).
 
The seeds are harvested in summer and autumn, seeded in winter in the heated greenhouse and then grown up as seedlings.
 
In spring, seedlings are planted into the fields and then harvested as plants again in summer in a very careful way.
 
After that, dehumidification equipment is gently drying the herbs. Subsequently the leaves are separated from the stems and the herbs are processed into final products.
 
Because of our careful working method and experience in herb farming we can guarantee a top quality organic product.
 
More than 500 different herb seedlings
 
Unique in South Tyrol is our variety of herb seedlings, which already covers more than 500 kinds.
 
The list of plants gets longer every year and reaches now from A like Afrikanische Federblume (African Hardhead) to Z like Zyprisches Strauchbasilikum (Cypriot Shrub Basil).
 
To give the visitor a bit of nature on the way
 
Our concern is also to give our customers an understanding of the many application possibilities of herbs.
 
A product can only reach high quality standards, if it is produced with lots of love and care.
 
At our guided farm tours our visitors get to know the miraculous world of herbs with all their senses.
