Welcome to my small farm, , I am Annamaria and I live here with my cats and dogs since the last 10 years. I started to manage this space pushed by my passion for home grown and prepared food (I have a large family and many friends). I am also passionate by wild herbs, eatable and medical. I run this little farm, where from the beginning I have used only natural techniques to grow vegetables using synergistic methods and carried out treatments on the fruit trees using maceration of various plants. My main focus is on taking care of the growth, harvest, processing and transformation of the products to sell. With the excess produced I started participating in the local GAS (buyers group).
The property is made of a former farmhouse from 1800 (dedicated partially to hospitality) his nice courtyard, with a old wooden oven and a large former winery (now a space dedicated to the herbs preservation and processing). The garden is 3500 square meters of which 500 is garden and the rest has fruit trees and is located in the flat area (50 m of lm) behind a hill adjacent to the Partenio park. A 1 ha olive grove is located on the hill at an altitude of between 100 and 200, and a larger vegetable garden of 1ha located a few km away.
