The Farm

The farm covers about 70 hectares of land along the river Tanaro, all cultivated with organic farming methods. Pears are the main crop, we grow several varieties of pears. We are also increasing the production of some varieties of apples, Fuji, Braeburn and Gala, and of Marabel potato.

Our main purpose is to produce fruits and vegetables which are good to eat. For this reason, we switched to organic farming, fertilizing exclusively with quality-controlled farmyard manure and using crop natural protection products, which allow to recreate the balance between parasite and predator within plant natural environment.

Our farming philosophy is the respect for nature, for its observation and for the research of its balance, even if we replaced sledge and animal-drawn vehicles with modern machines and electronics. Our challenge is product quality continuous improvement. People who are experienced in agriculture and are used to struggle with the «moods» of our land know that this is not at all obvious.
