Self-produced organic products, honest and sustainable
We are an organic certified farm. This means, among other things, that we cultivate our land in a sustainable way, taking Mother Nature into account. At our Agriturismo you can find various types of planting and agriculture, which we all grow in a biologically responsible way.
On the lower part of the estate, we alternately grow crops such as grain, spelled or crops for animal feed. After harvesting the grain and spelled, we take it to the local miller. We obtain organic whole grain and half whole wheat flour that we use in our own products, but we also sell it in packs of 1 kg in our shop.
Our chickens, which roam freely, provide fresh eggs every day!
As wine enthusiasts, there is of course a vineyard. Our small and young vineyard, planted in March 2016, consists of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot grape. We also cultivate the grapes exclusively in a sustainable way and we take care of them with a lot of passion. The wine is therefore certified organic.
The wine bears the name “BENJAMINO” which means “the favorite”.
From the end of October to November it is time to work in the olive groves and we start picking the olives. With a lot of passion, mostly in the sun (it MUST be dry when picking), and big nets under the trees, we pick the olives mainly by hand. All for a good cause; obtaining the most delicious, organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
We sell our olive oil under the name ‘A Taste of Passion’.
Many types of fruit trees can be found on the estate. Fig, apple, pear, cherry, apricot and plum trees, but also medlar, almond, walnut, hazelnuts … lots of pruning and care!
The fruits provide the tastiest organic Confettura Extra, juice or liqueur. Feel free to come and taste!
We use the vegetables and herbs that we get from our vegetable garden in the kitchen of our small restaurant. Several times a week we organize a typical Italian dinner evening on the terrace, where we use our own organic products or products from the vicinity as much as possible.
