Our small farm extends for almost one hectare in the fertile territory of Zagarolo on the Roman castles of Prenestini, about 30 km from central Rome, and is a choice of life for me and my family. We started in 2008, buying a small piece of land, and we planted carefully choosing the crops suitable for the territory: the olive grove, the vineyard, the orchard, small fruit and an oasis of aromatic herbs for the production of natural remedies. We carefully choose, according to the season, the vegetables of the garden to be sown, planting certified organic plants and plants from self produced or exchanged seeds, in the logic of biodiversity conservation, and we continue self-sufficiency for 30% of food consumption of our family, producing eggs (hens and ducks but not for meat, here they die from old age), seasonal vegetables, potatoes, fruit, oil, wine and small fruit, honey and beehive products, selling the surplus of excellent quality.
To help the return of the butterflies and pollinating insects we have planted a cultivation of officinal lavender on which in summer our bees work tirelessly to produce an excellent honey! We make bread, pasta and preserves for self-consumption, and when we have time also oleolites and soaps.
We are available to explain how the products of the earth are stored, so that other people can do the same, and learn from the exchange of knowledge with the people who share our experience.
We share our home with guests, providing a room with a bathroom.
Donating to my daughter and young people, the values in which I believe, first of all the simplicity of life and the intensity that the earth offers us with its perfumes and its fruits, unconditionally giving us everything we need to live, is my commitment everyday!
