Terranera Soc. Coop. agricola
Piemonte - Novi Ligure (AL)
Farm of Olives is a 'biodynamic farm in the hills of Novi Ligure in the Alessandria province.
The farm is known for its wines, but the project has a wider scope: a varied agricultural production, breeding, a farm where you can have lunch and dinner with food and wine from biodynamic production business and stay for shorter or longer periods in the Piedmont countryside.
So says Stephen Bellotti:
<< I started working in agriculture in 1977, eighteen years old, taking the small family business where he had been no more than a hectare of vineyard. I began almost immediately to get closer to organic methods and practical in the company since 1984 the biodynamic method.
Today we have 22 hectares of vineyards, 10 of arable land with rotation between common wheat and fodder, a hectare of orchard, a thousand fruit trees and a cattle farm, as well as a small breeding of farm animals.
In the vineyards it is practiced the herbarium green manure compound alternate rows and treatments are limited to the use of copper sulphate very moderate quantities (less than two kg / ha per year) and sulfur.
We cultivate the ancient grain varieties and practice gathering in sheaves with a binder and threshing after at least two months after harvest. The grains are ground in stone and give us a lot of great nutrients and organoleptic quality flour.
The vegetables and fruits are used both indoor or agritourism, as well as providing some buying groups and individual families.
We recently purchased an abandoned farmhouse near the Apennines where they were planted 2 hectares of timorasso and where we dream of building an agricultural and educational project of great scope. >>
