Down-to-earth and rooted in our homeland. These are the values which guide us each and every day, and which we exemplify with enthusiasm. In our sense of social responsibility, we support the production of South Tyriol and if possible the Pflersch Valley. And we’re delighted to do it, as we are delivered products which are seasonal, fresh, and of the highest of quality – not to mention zero-kilometre, another contribution to protecting the environment. We also place great value on the quality of our foodstuffs, as in the rest of the family resort. We achieve this through species-appropriate animal farming, GM-free fodder, artisan production and independent inspection. In addition to this, the incomparable taste of high-quality products from South Tyrol. This geographically favourable area, the fertile soils and a farming culture which has flourished for generations has created agricultural products which inspire our regional cuisine to take culinary flight. We would like to offer our most heartfelt of thanks to the following producers:
The free-range eggs from the Marginterhof farm in Gossensass taste so good because the hens breathe in the fresh mountain air, roam freely outside and are fed with natural foodstuffs. The eggs are collected carefully every day by Peter Marginter and are brought to the Feuerstein in no time.
A variety of vegetables are cultivated at the Lenzen farm in Ausserpflersch. A variety of lettuces, cabbage, red cabbage, kohlrabi, carrots, beetroot, courgettes, onions, leeks, rocket lettuce and potatoes all thrive in the nitrogen-rich soils. The fresh climate of this high altitude gives the vegetables an intensely aromatic flavour.
His own sheep graze on the herby mountain meadows around the family farm in Pflersch, and Reinhold Eisendle transforms their milk into sheep-milk cheese and yoghurt directly on the farm, much to the delight of our guests, who enjoy his products in the Feuerstein breakfast buffet on a family holiday in the mountains. In the hotel shop you will also find another selection of Reinhold’s magnificent products: Hand-woven rugs, blankets and shawls made from natural, untreated sheep wool are available for purchase.
Gabi and Sepp Holzer and Bernhard Auckenthaler are the green fingers behind the Wipptal Herb Garden. Together the dedicated herb farmers tend the Steirerhof in Wiesen and the Botenhof in Pflersch, two herb gardens with a range of altitudes and soil conditions that enables them to meet the natural needs of the plants to the full. The precious herbs and flowers are hand-harvested at auspicious “Balsamic Moon” times and brought to the Feuerstein as tea blends, aromatic herbs, liqueurs and syrups.
Verena Angerer and Alexander Guadagnini manage the Jörgnerhof together on 1,470m in the Pfitschtal Valley. With much passion, experience and love, they take care of their pigs and cattle, so that only the very best quality comes to the table. Species-appropriate and organic animal husbandry you can taste! The Feuerstein even adopted a pig: our Frida will have a long life as a breeding sow.
