  1. Balance Experience
  • Theme: Healthy treats
  • Title: From milk to butter: the traditional method
  • Description:
    In our house, the first thing we eat for breakfast every day contains butter. But have we ever stopped to ask how butter is made or whether it’s good for us? There are only a few experts left who know the traditional method of making butter, and Christian Leitgeb is one of them. He will take you to his farm, the Eggerhöfe, to show you how butter is made. You will learn more about this regional and sustainable product and how it supports inner equilibrium. A healthy and balanced diet allows the body to function in peak condition and improves one’s well-being. After a demonstration, sample the homemade butter on some freshly baked bread.
  • Expert: Christian Leitgeb
    For Christian, a farmer and owner of the Eggerhöfe in the Antholz Valley, it is important to preserve traditional farm skills. Retaining and continuing traditions is a major concern for him, as are regional produce and being conscious of diet, which is why he and his family produce a lot of goods on their own farm. Christian learned the traditional art of churning butter from his father. He believes this skill should not be lost, so he will give you a sneak peek of the production process.
