Our products
Ancient tastes that return on the tables for ours and your pleasure. As in the old peasant culture our products express the nature and the tradition of the humble and simple things.

Particularly interesting is the approach to the vegetable garden and the "permacolture". Term of great fashion nowadays but that substantially they are the same ancient and primitive rules of the peasant agriculture who was based on the "intelligent exploitation" of the nature: to assure the fertility of the ground and to use seeds that are adapted to the land and that reproduces themselves.
The vegetable-garden and the garden are also an occasion in order to express oneself, are source for seeking pleasure, to rediscover colors, shapes and smells. Therefore who want to share and to participate with us to this experience we would be very happy of hail you.
From the biological garden arrive the palatable tomatoes with which we make the sauces and the "peeled" for the "bruschette"s.

The ancient fruit plants that are abundant in the farm allow us to confection many qualities of jams: cherries, plums, apples, pears, blackberries and raspberries. Some rather rare like the jam of Sambuco or Visciole.

Our hens supply us the eggs with which mrs. Mirella, once a week, prepares for us the handmade "fettuccine".
We also produce extravirgin olive oil obtained from a quality of olives that in dialectal terms is called "Olivella" and that it confers to the oil an intense dark green color, a penetrating scent and a spicy taste, a little "aggressive" and a bitter aftertaste. A true treasure of the nature.
The wine production is limited to one red dry wine made with grapes of Sangiovese and Montepulciano and a small amount of sweet wine like Fragolino, Aleatico and Moscato.
In October our wood supplies us one good amount of "porcini" mushrooms. After collecting them we desiccate them or work in other ways.

Around the house there are aromatic plants of all types, rosemary, sage, bay laurel, roman mint, wild mint, glacial mint, marjoram, thyme, oregano, basil, tarragon and rocket in order to please all the tastes.
