We would like to establish a long-lasting and consolidated productive system that, through the use of local natural resources and the impulse of rural employment, will bring the countryside closer to an urban audience. This can only be achieved by encouraging its knowledge, respect and valuation. As Cicero said: “For of all gainful professions, nothing is better, nothing more pleasing, nothing more delightful, nothing better becomes a well-bred man than agriculture”.
We are also very concerned about creating a sustainable global system connecting agriculture and livestock farming as a way of avoiding the use of expensive external elements that pursue a short-term exhaustion of resources.
We want to create a place in which gathering and spreading ideas, sharing experiences and solutions with others, supporting a farming network of people with common interests. Our website is central to this strategy and we expect it to become a centre to exchange knowledge and experiences.
We rely on a large group of companies and technicians to develop research projects in different areas (agriculture, environment, green building, efficient energy solutions, etc.) and we are exploring new ways of collaboration with public institutions for environmental improvement.
We are also developing a direct-to-customer commercialization channel, analysing costs and taking advantage of our logistics potential. We are aiming for fair trading for healthy and premium products with reasonable prices. Our goal is to stand out of conventional products avoiding their massive and over exploiting strategies.
