Doing organic agricultural means establishing a solidarity pact with the environment and the nature, producing in a responsible and sustainable way. The estate abandoned the use of chemicals in 2005, as they were worried about the consequences that could have affected the laborers and the consumers, adapting production techniques typical of traditional agriculture ( from green manure to intercropping, and from rotating to mulching), based rigorously on respecting man and the earth.
In full respect of the nature and cultivation cycles, this life style has brought to life a new company that looks towards sustainable economy, and characterizes the valorization of moral consumption, human work and agricultural production.
In the same years that we were changing over to organic, we began to notice a constant positive reaction between man and nature, founded on mutual respect that gave voice to certain social situations that maybe only in this way and in this context could find a concrete help.
In a nutshell, we have to dedicate ourselves to what today is defined “ social agriculture” that at the time, just like for organic, was a world still to be discovered. With the help of the social services, the institutions, the public authorities and other companies in the area, we have started, over the years, to make projects and take paths to include “ vegetable garden “ therapy for people that are socially disadvantaged or with disabilities.
Our goal is to promote direct knowledge of the rural civilization and to greatly appreciate the food and the work of the farmer as “guardian” of the riches of the territory.
With the “EDUCATIONAL FARM” project we learn the various aspects of agricultural culture for children and also for adults through a series of “THEMED TRAILS”.
Visit the farm animals, pick up the first fruits in the garden, mill the oil, harvest, make cheese and bread.
The farm is able to create educational courses for children’s schools, elementary schools, middle schools, agricultural institutes and universities.
The programs will be defined according to the age groups and for the little ones the explanation will be based on the use of the 5 senses, to the discovery of the smells and the forms of the nature.
