Agriculture in the heart of the Dolomites
Agricultural activity at a mountain farm in Alta Badia
Our farm, Lüch da Murin in Badia, is located on the bank of the Val Badia's main river, the Rio Gadera in Italian and Gran Ega in Ladin, which means big water. Once the force of the water moved the wheels of a sawmill and a "murin" which means mill. The main agricultural activity is the breeding of Grigia Alpina cattle for sale to diary or quality meat producers at kilometer zero. The main fodder is hay, produced entirely on our four hectares of meadows and approximately two hectares of land we rent nearby. In addition, the farm has over seven hectares of forest, especially valuable for the supply of wood, which provides natural fuel to heat the rooms of the house.
