  • Description

    Description

    We work since 2005 on our 24 hectares to recreate an ecosystem that includes the man . We are dedicated to the care of : existing citrus , vineyards, orchards , olive groves and melograneto implanted for some years . The garden is intended primarily for self-consumption and markets for the surplus . There are also cats , dogs , donkeys 4 / i, a cow and a small chicken coop . The farm is the old millstone restructured . We host tourists in two apartments . Our goal is to find an alternative way of living to the urban , without denying the progress .

    Lavoriamo dal 2005 sui nostri 24 ettari per ricreare un ecosistema che comprenda anche l’uomo. Ci dedichiamo alla cura di: agrumeto preesistente, vigneto, frutteto, oliveto e melograneto impiantati da qualche anno. L’orto è destinato principalmente all’autoconsumo e ai mercatini per le eccedenze. Ci sono anche gatti, cani, 4 asine/i, una mucca e un modesto pollaio. Il centro aziendale è il vecchio palmento ristrutturato. Ospitiamo i turisti in due mini appartamenti. Il nostro obiettivo è trovare un modello di vita alternativo a quello urbano, senza rinnegare il progresso.
