Regional products from Val d’Ega
How do the Dolomites taste?
Cheese, milk and milk products, speck, sausages, eggs, potatoes and vegetables: the farms of the Val d’Ega are also delighted to offer their speciality produce to guests and tourists! The guesthouses and accommodation in the Val d’Ega also work closely with the producers, making it a truly tasty place for visitors!
The Learner Hof farm is situated at an altitude of 1,360 metres, not far from the centre of Nova Ponente.
This is where upcoming farm owner and qualified cheese-maker Stefan Köhl has opened his cheese dairy. His award-winning cheese is available in the farm shop, open Monday to Saturday from 09.00 to 11.00 (or phone ahead) to buy and take home!
The range includes semi-soft, semi-hard, farmer’s, pepper, caraway, chilli and hard cheeses - all made from unpasteurised milk.
Animal health and well-being are the priorities at the Ebenhof farm in the village of Collepietra. The cattle, kept in free stalls, are bred and grazed on the farm to produce natural, high-quality milk, which has since 2007 been used as the basis for making cheese and other dairy products there.
From April to October all milk up at the Hagneralm cheese dairy is made into natural, aromatic unpasteurised milk cheeses. The Hagneralm’s characteristic speck is also produced here: the pigs live outdoors from May to October and are fed on the whey from the cheese-making. The Hagneralm range of cheeses includes the following: mountain cheese (aged from three months to two years), natural hard cheese, chilli or pepper cheese, herb cheese with eleven different forest herbs, soft cheeses with white mould, cream cheese (natural or with herbs), yogurt, buttermilk and other dairy products. As the farm is run on ecological principles, product quantities are limited.
In a small side street towards San Valentino, there is a small, sunlit wonder world: the garden of Anna-Maria Gall! She has been living at the Kronlechnerhof at Nova Levante for 34 years and has turned her passion into her profession. A wild mixture of countless vegetables and herbs thrive on her garden.
"People eat meat - most of them, at least. And they have been doing that ever since they started.
The least you can do as a meat farmer is to give the animals a good live time - even if it is short. I don't just want to offer organic food, I want to live it. That's why my farm is small, but the few animals I keep, I keep them as I should," explains Bernd from Karerhof in Carezza.
Where Luis and Astrid live with their 1,700 chickens is indeed a little corner of paradise. Here, among lustrous green meadows and forests, overlooking the peaks of the Corno Bianco, Corno Nero, Pala di Santa, Latemar and Catinaccio, the Sassolungo and the Sciliar, the chickens can freely run around here all day from the early morning on.
