We carry the sun in our hearts
Picture a wide clearing surrounded by meadows and woods, the impressive ridges of the Dolomites are shimmering on the horizon, and less than 500 meters away the historic Renon narrow-gauge railway chugs by leisurely. Here, where the forests rustle and people carry the sun in their hearts, the Lichtensternhof farm is located: a place where people and animals are equally spoiled and where nature sets the tone.
Farmer's wife Christina has found her calling in the garden. Every year she grows vegetables and herbs in harmony with nature in her farmer's garden. Chemical fertilizers and pesticides have never come through her garden gate. Instead, she sticks to mixed cultivation, lots of manual work, and trust in nature and its richness. Thus, juicy tomatoes, crunchy lettuce, crooked carrots, sweet fruits, and aromatic herbs compete with all kinds of other young vegetables in a variety that only nature itself can provide. And the produce that is not consumed immediately after the harvest is used in homemade fruit spreads, syrups, and many other delicacies.
