The Moosmair farm

From the farm to the Naturhotel

The Moosmair-farm has been existing since 500 years. Therefore it is one of the oldest farms in Acereto. Quickly, the originally pure farm established itself as village inn, proven by written evidence since the middle of the 19th century. From the early 1960s, the farm has gradually become the modern Naturhotel with about 50 beds, which awaits you today. Due to the fact that there was no street from Campo Tures to Acereto before 1967, the first guests had to reach the guesthouse on foot, whereas the luggage was transported via a cableway. Today, however, it is easily accessible by car at any time. What has remained until today, is the farm, whose delivered products are used in the Moosmair kitchen. These include milk, butter, cheese or jams at the breakfast, as well as beef and pork at the Herbal Restaurant Arcana or in occasion of the daily dinner menu. Since 2016, an organic certification has been confirming that all of our farm products correspond to the strict guidelines and quality criteria for organic farming. 

Moosmair pasture
Summer retreat high above Riva di Tures

Ever since, the Moosmair has an own pasture, whose origins date back to the 16th century as well. It lies at an altitude of 2,100 m above level above Riva di Tures at the Acereto high trail, in the direction of the Durra pasture. Here, the cattle of the Moosmair farm spend their summer retreat. The dairyman processes the milk to butter, buttermilk and cheese, which then arrive fresh on the breakfast table. The hay for the hay baths comes from here, too.

Moosmair grain mill
Self-processed flour for oven-fresh bread

In the past, many farmers in Acereto cultivated wheat, rye, barley and oats and milled the grain in their own mills. Many of them our now derelict, after the cultivation was no more profitable. But not the Moosmair mill, dating back to 1860, which – still in original state – is active and continues milling the flour for the oven-fresh bread on the breakfast table. On request, we offer guided tours at the Moosmair mill.
