Here at ‘Cascina Gaggioli’, we chose to follow organic farming as we believe it is essential to offer a genuine product which is tasty, but at the same time with a high level of pure and nutritious substances. Because the soil is worked with care, and it is not exploited but respected, therefore it pays you back with healthy products. If ‘we are what we eat’, then our customers can only benefit from consuming our products.
We respect our land, by avoiding the use of chemical products, by rotating the crops, as to allow the soil to become more fertile, and by allowing the areas which are not cultivated to follow the environmental remediation which is needed. If you have time to go for a walk on the farm, you will notice rows of plants, hedges, shrubbery and flowers, which all together allow the appearance of wild animals, otherwise unlikely to be seen near the suburbs of a big town like Milan.
At the moment our crops are
Carnaroli rice, Sant’Andrea rice, Wheat, Hard wheat, polenta corn, protein pea, loaf of hay, meadows
We have a Bio shop on the farm, which sells what we produce, i.e. precious meats, rice, cereals, as well as ‘short chain’ nearby products.
