From the producer
Organic farming as a choice
We inherited cultural knowledge from our fathers and combined it with cultural knowledge. They have shown us the way and we walk it today with a new awareness.
We are convinced that organic farming is not a longing for a past past: it represents one of the most urgent responses to the planet’s imminent future, which depends on the ability to know how to change course.
The land we inherited from our fathers has undergone heavy changes since the post-war period onwards. Reappropriating it is a duty, because it is full of promises that it will only be able to keep if we learn to observe it, know it, listen to it better. To understand what he needs, to feed himself better and to flourish quickly.
Because the land we grow is truly alive.
And to maintain this vitality it is necessary to restore the forgotten equilibrium, paying particular attention to biological diversity in the production processes.
Good soil management practices, agricultural rotations, the rests themselves, are some of the examples that contribute to the creation of agriculture that respects the environment and biodiversity.
Basically it is a simple thought: our nourishment comes from the earth and therefore the more it is well, the better our health will be.
