At MoaAlm we strive to make as little impact on the environment as possible. We’ve taken the time to write about where our food comes from... we hope you’re not hungry!
Food is a huge part of the MoaAlm experience and something we pride ourselves on - our ability to create wholesome (and delicious) vegetarian meals unlike anything else in this region... and to
do it by sourcing ingredients from local or Austrian, organic suppliers.
One of our favourite entrees this summer by chef Kirsty has been organic beetroot with goats cheese, roasted hazelnuts and rocket from the garden. The goat’s cheese we use is sourced from our
local mountain goat farm, Figerhof, just a five minute drive from MoaAlm. We order from them based on demand, and love that we know exactly where it’s coming from!
In the theme of dairy products (a staple in Austrian cuisine), most of our milk and cheese comes from Tirol Milch, an Austrian owned company who take a lot of pride in sourcing the best dairy
products in Tirol from a variety of farmers. The milk collection service in Tirol is unique and incomparable with any other Austrian province in the complexity of its structure. There are almost
2000 places throughout the province where Tirolean farmers gather fresh milk and provide it for daily collection. Alpine pastures, farms and local collection points are where Tirol Milch milk
tanker drivers pick up the best raw material for delivery to the dairy. We feel good about serving dairy products to our guests that come from Austrian farms and family-owned businesses.
The majority of our fruit and vegetables comes from a company called BioGast, Austria’s largest specialist wholesaler of controlled organic food. We receive a delivery every week with
certified organic fresh fruit and vegetables - some from Austria, some from further afield in Europe and some from overseas... but where possible, we choose fruits and vegetables that are in
season and that don’t need to travel too far to our plates (and our bellies!). Eating with the seasons helps us to stay connected to our environment, eat the freshest foods, and know that we are
receiving the nutrients we need based on the weather and time of year. We see and feel the change of seasons so vividly here at MoaAlm, surrounded by the mountains, the national park and farming
community; so to eat in alignment with mother nature is important to us, and therefore also our guests!
