South Tyrolean Milk Feast
Milk is healthy and thanks to the many vitamins, micronutrients, proteins and carbs it is one of the staple foods of consciously living people.
But milk is not always milk and only healthy cows can produce good milk. Of course, South Tyrolean cows make their milk in the same way as the cows elsewhere. The main difference is the keeping of the animals. The bigger part of the cattle still lives in farms and in summer the cows graze on nearly pristine mountain pastures.
During the South Tyrolean Milk Feast taking place on 25th and 26th August 2018 on the mountain pasture Fane Alm (1,780 m) you can learn more about life in the mountains and especially about the "white gold" produced in this region.
For example, farmers will show how to milk, how they make butter, cheese or cream. In addition there is offered a various program with factual information, music, entertainment and – of course – many traditional delicacies made of milk and cheese.
How to get to Vals and Fane Alm
The alpine pasture Fane Alm is located in the vicinity of Vals in Eisacktal. From the village Mühlbach in Pustertal you go towards Vals and from there through the village until you get at the parking place. There you can take the so called "South Tyrolean milk track" and in about 1 hour you will reach the mountain pasture. For those who don’t want to walk there is shuttle bus.
