Straight from our farm and vegetable garden to your plate! At the ZapfenHof we take pride in using only the finest ingredients from the local region – and what could be more local than our own farm?
Sustainable and organic farming practices are for us not only something we owe future generations but also an investment in quality. After all, many of our guests tell us that they can immediately taste the difference between our organic fruit and vegetables and the produce in supermarkets. Don't believe us? Visit the ZapfenHof and take the taste test!
Fresh, Fresher, Homemade!
Here in Tirol, the farming year is dictated by the seasons. In spring our guests can look forward to cabbages and the first radishes of the season. Children staying with us are welcome to help pull up the radishes in our vegetable garden – and, of course, try one or two in the process!
In summer the garden here at the ZapfenHof is a sea of lush green, while the nearby orchard is red with apples. Other colours include the white of elderflower bushes, nasturtium in bloom and the spectacular flowers of the courgette plant. These and many more ingredients from our garden are used in our kitchen, with the wonderfully aromatic herbs in our herb garden providing the finishing touch.
Join us in the garden
Our team of chefs are specialists in traditional Austrian and Tyrolean cuisine. However, they need top produce in order to create their delicious dishes. And this is where you come in! Guests at the ZapfenHof are welcome to help out in our vegetable and herb garden with tasks such as planting seeds all the way through to harvesting the finished product. Hotel owner Ingrid is always grateful for a helping hand or two and will be happy to tell guests some of her secrets about growing herbs.
The ultimate reward comes in the evening when you sit down to a sumptuous meal made using ingredients that you have picked and prepared yourself earlier in the day. Bon appétit!
