Farm Holidays in San Genesio on our farm

Our farm is located on the outskirts of Jenesien below the mountain station of the cablecar. Similar to Steinegg, Jenesien is a mountain village above the provincial capital of Bolzano.

Several years ago, after the death of my parents (Angelika), we had to think about how we could continue running Wiesl and Ebenbinderhof and how both companies could profit from it. Isidor and I cannot milk cows, like my dad did, so we made some changes: nowadays we buy some one month old calves from Isidor's brother, then we keep them until they are about 2 years old. Our oxen graze on our own pastures on the Salten (a plateau sown with larches from May to the end of October and during the wintertime they remain in our stable. They are fed exclusively with our own hay from our meadows and we believe they are happy animals, and all have a name: Nibex, Silvester, Neuer and Wastl.

The whole world is talking about sustainability and environmental awareness so we aim to keep the food chain and the journey short. We also use as many salads (currently the green salad), cucumbers, courgettes from our own farm and grow our own organic berries to make jam. We hope that you enjoy your stay with us and that you also notice the difference: high quality produce from your own small farm!
