Alexander Agethle is what you call a modern farmer. The South Tyrolean studies agriculture in Florence, works in summer on various alpine pastures in Switzerland, then travels around the world for a year and expands his theoretical knowledge by visiting farms on his travels.
In 2003 he finally took over his parents' farm in South Tyrol and completely redesigned it. The project was financed by means of crowdfunding.
With his innovative ideas Alexander shapes the future of organic farming.
