Alpine farming in Sölden
Delicious mountain cheese 2012-2022
Over 10 years there was something special at Gampe Thaya. In a mobile cheese factory, the farmer Jakob Prantl made cheese at the alpine cabin. In the summer the cows were grazing and providing us with fresh milk, which was made to cheese and after the ripening process, it was served.
Due to a restructuring of the farm and the keeping of the cow, Family Prantl no more produces cheese.
The Tyrolean grey cattle spend the summer in the mountains and enjoys the best grass up there, as well as many herbs and flowers. You can probably imagine that these are very happy cows. The obtained meat is used for sausages, soup and other meat dishes.
Fresh products from the mountains
The meat from the Tyrolean grey cattles will be manufactured into sausages and Kaminwurzen (dried sausages). It is also used for preparing soups and dishes like Tiroler Gröstl. Another typical Tyrolean product is made on the mountain pasture. With a traditional process, Sauerkraut is prepared.
Also jam, honey and fresh farmers bread is manufactured during the summer at the mountain pasture. You would like to bring some products back home?? You can find all the products in the Gampe Ladele, a small shop directy at Gampe Thaya.
