The land cultivated around Borgo Pignano supplies a high proportion of the ingredients used in our kitchens and by the makers of our cosmetic products.
We grow olives, cereals and grains which play an important part in our quest for self-sufficiency.
These form the basis for our organic flours (used to make bread and pizza in traditional wood-burning ovens), pastas, herbs, jams and a range of honeys.
Our grains are raised from ancient seedstocks – richer in nutrients than their modern counterparts.
We also produce, fruits, nuts, seeds, and cold pressed Tuscan olive oil as well as feed for the chickens, pigs and horses. We make soaps and other toiletries using the essence and extracts of flowers and herbs grown around the estate.
This type of low impact production has been popular for many generations in Tuscany and promotes a self-supporting cycle.
We concentrate on growing heritage varieties of vegetables and fruits, native to Tuscany, which mean that guests can enjoy the freshest of ingredients.
We encourage guests to visit our 2.5 acre vegetable garden to see how some of our fruits and vegetables are grown.
