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.
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.
