Organic farm South Tyrol: Untermairhof in Selva dei Molini

Old and new combined

Our antique farm furniture is a testament to the days of yore and our desire to honour long-standing traditions. They bridge the gap between longing for a bygone era (the farmhouse dates back to the 12th century) and enjoying the modern comforts of our vacation rentals. Old and new masterfully combined for an unforgettable holiday feeling.

Snowfall Farm

Conscious craftsmanship

A down-to-earth mentality along with a pinch of vision and a good dollop of passion are the driving force behind Joachim’s pursuit of tradition-conscious craftsmanship on the organic farm. His cows, calves, goats, ducks, donkeys and cats are dear to his heart, as is their well-being. He is always happy to let young aspiring farmers lend a hand.

The farm dates back to the 12th century and has been managed by the Aschbacher family for four generations: self-sufficient in energy, with its own wood chip and photovoltaic system and a small hydroelectric power station. The wood chips are sourced from the farm’s own forest. On the farm, 35 cows and young animals live in a loose housing – animal-friendly, with plenty of run and pasture. The young cattle spend the summer on the farm’s own mountain pasture in Zösenberg (part of Lappach).


Farm chapel Mairkirchl

Our farm chapel: Mairkirchl

The Mairkirchl, lovingly cared for by the Aschbacher family, is just a few minutes’ walk from the house. It can be visited daily during the day. The chapel also contains many valuable statues of saints, which are kept and exhibited in the parish museum. The “Resurrected” from the Georg Stieger School in St. Lorenzen and a statue of the Mother of God with child from 1450 deserve special attention.

Historical journey to the origin:

  • Built in 1642 in honour of the Blessed Mother and St. Sebastian and St. Roch, as thanks for the valley being spared from the plague.
  • Consecrated in 1699 by the Bishop of Brixen, John VIII, Franz Count Kuen.
  • The church was in the pastoral care of the parish of Taufers until 1952.
  • In 1990 it was dehumidified and given a new larch floor. Frescoes on the left and right front and the picture on the eastern outside were uncovered.
  • The local primary school was in operation until 1991, until then there was a weekly mass for pupils.
  • The Mairkirchl chapel is still visited in large numbers on the pilgrimages from Mühlwald to Lappach and is now even chosen for weddings, christenings and annual celebrations.
