Holidays on the farm
in the heart of South Tyrol
The Grosshof is a steep mountain farm in Aberstückl. It is located on the sunny side of the Sarentino Valley at 1325 m above sea level in a quiet location. It has been owned by the Göller family since 1903 and is managed by the current owner Engelbert Göller together with his brother Albert and his mother Irene.
The farm is an organic farm, a milk cattle farm with its own offspring from the young cows of the Tyrolean gray cattle, which are threatened with extinction. The Tyrolean gray cattle used to be kept on almost all farms in the Sarntal Valley because they are frugal and very suitable for the steep alpine pastures.
Also the Tyrolean mountain sheep is still kept here. However, it is on our alpine pastures from May to the end of October, and only in the winter months on the farm.
Otherwise there are some free-range chickens for our own use, an old horse, cats, rabbits and a dog on the farm.
You can also leave the car: You can hike directly from the farm into the Sagbach valley, past well-kept old mountain farms to the Durralm and further to the natural and rustic Antranalm, which can only be reached on foot, or to the deep blue Kratzbergersee. Also the highest mountains of the Sarntal Alps, the Hirzer, the Alplerspitze and the Ifinger can be climbed from the farm. Some of our guests have also hiked to the lonely and remote high alpine pastures belonging to the farm, the Karalpe and the Grünangeralpe and were thrilled.
The name arnica comes from the flower of the same name. Arnica is also used as a medicinal plant.
Gentian is a mountain flower that is often found here. This is also processed into a brandy.
