Only organic Italian "TSG haymilk" is used for Alce Nero yoghurt. This milk comes from cows that feed almost exclusively on fresh grass or hay (dried grass).
Milk is collected every day and turned into yoghurt within 48 hours from milking, without modifying its natural fat content in any way.
The “TSG haymilk” used to produce Alce Nero yoghurt comes from a group of farms known locally as ‘masi’ (farmsteads), located in the Alpine area of Alto Adige, or more specially in Val Venosta, Val Sarentino, Val Pusteria and Altopiano del Renon. The farmsteads are generally at an altitude of 1200 metres. Their milk is used to produce the yoghurt at the Mila laboratories in Bolzano, in accordance with Alce Nero principles.
There is perfect integration between man and nature in the areas in which “TSG haymilk” is produced. On the alpine farmsteads, care and attention for the animal stems from a deep-rooted respect for the land. And this is why those living on the farmsteads truly feel like farmers. First, they focus on sowing and tending the meadows, cutting the grass and drying it to make hay. They take care of the woods and are careful to maintain a balance between the number of cows and the hectares of land used for pasture, thus preventing the land from deteriorating and guaranteeing the cows freedom of movement, essential to their health.
This method of animal farming has been passed down for many generations and guarantees the extraordinary Alpine landscape as well as the intense flavour of the "TSG haymilk” produced.
Approximately fourteen to each stall, the cows on the farms that produce “TSG haymilk" are always guaranteed free grazing. Their diet comprises roughly 85% fresh grass and non-ensiled hay and is enriched with organic GMO-free feed.
This breeding method results in 18-20 litres of milk per day per cow. The farms mainly keep French Brown cows, but also Pezzate Rosse, Holstein Friesian and Tyrol Grey breeds.
