The Project

All started about 15 years ago – organic farmers from the Wipptal (valley in Tyrol) breathed new life into the native cereal variety Obernberger Schwarzhafer. Seeds from the Tyrolean gene bank formed the starting capital for further propagation.

In ancient times Obernberger Schwarzhafer was grown to provide fodder for the traditionally horse driven trade over the Brenner pass. In the meantime several organic farmers harvest this almost forgotten black oat and even other native Tyrolean cereal varieties.

Results from the project are highly demanded BIO vom BERG products. The distillery Kostenzer exclusively offers Obernberger Black Oat Whisky. And the zero waste shop Greenroot has Tiroler Kolbendinkel (spelt) in stock.

Native Varieties

Native cereal varieties and old breeds are robust and even grow on less intensive sites. Compared to modern varities the harvest volume is significantly lower. In harsh mountain regions the native tyrolean cereal varieties score with yield security.

Cultivation Report 2018

15 organic farmers got the seeds from the Tyrolean gene bank, 14 farmers had their own seeds.

Spring cereals were cultivated on 12 fields, winter cereals were harvested on 16 fields. Native cereal species have been harvested on a total area of approx. 7,65 ha.

Most of our participants did relie on Tiroler Kolbendinkel (spelt), followed by Obernberger Schwarzhafer (black oat) on a par with Sechzeiliger Pumpergerste (barley).

The majority of the farmers cultivated the cereal species for their own use as fodder grain or for bread baking. Three farmers supplied BIO vom BERG with their harvest. One organic farmer supplied Greenroot with spelt.
