The farm

About half of the entire company extension is occupied by natural environments such as woods, meadows, hedges, gully formations and streams that make the natural and biological quality of our cultivations very high. The agricultural surfaces, on the other side, immersed in a natural environment that is far from sources of pollution. They are mainly cultivated with cereals, legumes, fruit, vegetables and vines, or they are destined to pastures dedicated to the breeding of Romagna cows. In addition to them, we also breed pigs in collaboration with selected local breeders. The company is run and certified organic. It also uses biodynamic practices to obtain the best possible products, both from the point of view of healthiness and environmental sustainability. In particular, the main crops are cereals (such as wheat, spelled, barley), fruit (peaches, nectarines and small fruits) and, last but not least, wine grapes.
