The Mila hay milk stems solely from South Tyrolean mountain farms, from San Genesio, Val Sarentino, Val Pusteria and Val Venosta; collected 365 days a year. One of our hay milk farmers is Georg. For him, the alarm clock rings early on the "Oberputzerhof" farm in Pozza in Val Sarentino, because after all, nine hungry gray cattle dames are waiting in the barn. At nearly 1,500 m above sea level – this is where the Mila hay milk is made.
“The hay milk”, adds Georg “is the traditional form of milk collection in the alpine region. We value animal feed of the cows that is in harmony with nature.” After he’s milked the cows he brings his hay milk and that of his neighbors to the collection point down in the valley, every day. “I’m a passionate farmer. It’s a beautiful, but obviously often difficult, working with nature. The way our family sticks together and helps each other out is crucial as well, otherwise a farm like ours couldn’t survive”, Georg explains.
