Find the farm of your dreams

You can learn a lot about herbs on the farm

A holiday in the realm of fragrances

South Tyrol has a long herbal tradition. The climate provides the ideal conditions for growing over 120 different medicinal and culinary herbs. Herbs were first cultivated in the gardens of abbeys. Nowadays, guests can look forward to finding them on 'Red Rooster' farms.
One of the great advantages of herbs from farm gardens is that they usually grow far away from busy roads. Whether fragrant lavender, cough-relieving ribwort or soothing camomile, they remain truly unspoilt and have the freedom to develop their aromas and healing properties. Precious knowledge about these plants and their effects is passed down from generation to generation of farmwomen and is kept a carefully-guarded secret. Lots of farms grow herbs, which are gathered at the right time, dried and made into teas, herb mixtures, bath essences or cosmetics - much to guests' delight. Some farmwomen will let you in on their secrets and show you which herb to stuff an aromatic cushion with or which one to put in tea, why some plants are particularly good in butter, cheese, bread and spreads and how essential oils may be used in steam baths and saunas.
 
Treats from the farm garden to take away
Lots of farms let guests use their vegetable gardens or herb bed during their stay. Children can see and learn about how vegetables grow and are harvested and can try salads or soups seasoned with freshly-picked raw ingredients.
