Organic Farm

orto 1

The biological agriturismo Pieve del Colle is in the center of our biological farm. We own 22 hectares and rent another 24. 36 of these we cultivate, the other 10 are divided in pasture, woods and a truffle-plantation with Perigord-truffle (nero pregiato).

Since 1978 we work our lands and grow various beans,fruits, vegetables and grapes. We raise pigs, lamb, geese, chicken, pigeons and rabbits. All natural and biological.

Biological Cultures

We use biological farming techniques, without any chemicals and with the use of crop rotation to preserve the natural fertility of the ground. The result ends on our tables where it can be appreciated by our guests.
