Farm DelikatESSEN

You can tell the farm origin of the products, as farm produce does not only grow in harmony with nature but is also processed by hand using traditional methods that conserve all the original goodness. This takes a lot of time and is hard work, but the good results are in the taste.

So far, 52 farms selling their own products from all over South Tyrol are committed to adherence to the rigorous ‘Red Rooster’ requirements regarding origin and processing. At least 75% of raw ingredients must come from the family farm, and only small quantities may be purchased at another farm in South Tyrol. In addition, the basic ingredients must be carefully processed by hand and regular blind tastings involving an independent, expert jury have to yield positive results and guarantee consistent high quality of products.
