What Do We Do
The organic farm "Alpe di Puntato" is essentially oriented towards the cultivation of vegetables and fruits, inspired by the principles of organic farming, promoting the recovery of ancient seeds and native varieties.
The cultivated areas are the result of an extensive recovery work of old terraces, resulting in a real clean-up work, still ongoing, to increase the amount of usable areas.
In the vegetable garden we produce typical local crops, especially potatoes, onions and cabbage, as well as other vegetables such as carrots, salads, leeks, beets and so on..
The orchard is the result of a careful varied choice aimed at recovery native species that are almost disappeared, like apple trees "rust", "pianello", "belfiore", "lucchesi" pears and "bettolino", "blood of dragon" plums and "claudia verde", as well as "lapen"cherries and " marchiana del colle "whose fruits present variegated sizes, shapes and colors, reflecting the marked biodiversity that distinguishes the cultures of the past.
For some years we have undertaken the beekeeping activity in order to further enhance the resources of the place, since there are multiple spontaneous nectariferous plants and large chestnut woods that allow the production of an excellent chestnut honey and “millefiori”(wildflower).
We regularly organize theme parties (of the erbs, of the mountain pasture) and during the good season we also organize excursions by foot along the arch of the mountains, reaching the more or less known destinations of the surroundings.
"Alpe di Puntato" wants to invent a multifunctional agricultural enterprise.
