Echoing the family productions, secularly pursued by modernizing and enhancing the original crops and implementing the biological conversion, the company born from the passion and the belief that this is the only way to improve the quality of our lives and that of our sons.
Our production of citrus starts in October with the clementines (varieties with few seeds) and continues with the tarot oranges (variously pigmented), with blond, with vanilla (sweets), the love (original or wild strains), mandarins and lemons (which can be up to four productions a year).
The last to mature are oval or Calabrian oranges, ancient varieties of late with thin skin and much juice, they collect up to June-July (depending on vintages).
Besides this production, which covers about 80% of the land, there are some apple trees, including a variety called "lappeddi", small, but very fragrant, typical of this area. Among the indigenous crops are chestnut trees, cherry trees, apricots, plums, walnuts, pear trees.
Our company a few years ago has chosen, as a privileged channel for the marketing of products, to apply especially to the GAS and organic markets, both to exit from the perverse logic of the market, which penalize the small producer and the consumer, and for implement (where possible) the principle of short chain and the Km 0.
We are, therefore, willing to build relationships with groups or with individual shipments, however small, to be agreed.
And 'our intention, in the medium term, provide the company the opportunity to host; in the meantime we would be happy to arrange visits in order to better understand our reality.
