The farm Piccapane is located in Cutrofiano, in the center of Salento. The farm's assets include about 2500 “leccino” thirty-year- old olive trees, 3 hectares of secular Mediterranean olive groves, “cellina” and “ogliarola” varieties (about 100 trees), 1 hectar of vegetable garden and 3 hectares of cereals.
The experience of the olive tree growers comes from researching natural methods of cultivation. The farm searched for an alternative agricultural model to that of the dominant one that focuses only on profit and mono cultural productions with only high volume and low business margin.
WE KNOW HOW TO DO IT
The first year of production with the sale of grain to 12 euro per quintal could not get even half of the costs incurred,
as well, the following year, we decided sow hats and Khorasan, grind it directly
and work with local artisans to produce pasta and bakery products
