In the heart of the Valle Grana, one of the 14 alpine enclaves which uses the Occitan language, we aim to practice agriculture and use old peasant farming traditions. The main activities are the breeding of Piedmontese cattle, the cultivation of vegetables, hay, work in the forests and the processing of the wood needed for winter heating. The family run farm, which consists of the stone house, barn and tool shed, have been renovated keeping the original features and is now our home. Surrounded by meadows, that produce fodder and vegetables, the barn and the hut house a couple of donkeys. The animals, from spring to late autumn graze outdoors. A minor part of the farm is located in the lower valley; other vegetables are grown here surrounded by a small orchard, chickens, rabbits and four goats. Most of the products grown are for our personal use or are made into preserves which we use in out 25 place restaurant. The goal is to breaking down as much as possible a chain that in the last half century has changed structurally farm life, with the conviction that it is from the earth that changes happen. A separate room in the house is available for guests who can help in the activities related to the different seasons and with baking. French is our second language, with English we try to get by.
This farms main activity is sheep farming with Langhe sheep (an endangered breed), which produce milk for cheese and meat. In addition we raise Piedmontese cattle, pigs and other farm animals such as rabbits and poultry.
We grow strawberries and soft fruit, chestnuts, peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, aubergines, beans, green beans, potatoes. We have an agritourism with six bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and a restaurant for 60 people, we have free wifi internet. We speak good French and some English. Accommodation in a room with a bathroom with use of the kitchen when wanted or you can eat all meals with us. You can have the opportunity to learn from us how we manage our livestock, and process the products we grow into jam or preserves in the kitchen for the preparation of traditional Piedmontese dishes. It would be interesting to have an exchange of ideas between people who have the same interests from other parts of the world.
