The farm Obertimpflerhof is situated in Verano/Vöran, a village above Merano which lies 1,280 meters above sea level.
Franz Innerhofer keeps his pigs on the pasture and in the stable on and around his farm, where they have access to clear mountain air and a lot of space to run free. That and GMO-free feeding is the secret for farmer Innerhofer’s high quality pork meat. In traditional and artisan production it is processed to well-known South Tyrolean speck and other local pork specialties.
Products: speck, Kaminwurz (dried smoked sausages), smoked ham, salami - the opening days of the farm shop are listed below.
