Our wealth lies in the diversity of the Alpine flora, which is found in the Dolomites on unfertilized, extensively farmed plateaus, so-called rough pastures. Until 1960, the hay for the Völs hay baths was mowed on the Schlern plateau (2500 m) and subsequently on Seiser Alm. Especially the mountain meadows around the Murmeltierhütte (marmot lodge, 2132 m) guarantee high quality mountain meadow hay. It is harvested once a year depending on weather conditions between mid-July and mid-August.
