The term „Gschmitz“ means as much as mowed strip. It comes from the fact that the otherwise rather thickly wooded parts of the fields “Vergör” and “Pfurtschell” were intermittent by sections of agriculturally used grassland. These meadows resulted out of fire clearing. However, the predominant larch trees only burned on the outside. For that reason they could cast out the following year what saved their survival up to this day. The oldest larch trees in “Gschmitz” are up to 400 years old. Another explanation for the origin of the term “Gschmitz” may be the craft of forging, which was practiced actively in Fulpmes and still is one of the biggest industrial sectors of the region. Many of the smiths located in Fulpmes formerly ran a farm for self-supply where they cultivated the fields and meadows at “Gschmitz”.
