Where We Are
The certified organic farm "Alpe di Puntato" is located in the Municipality of Stazzema (LU) at 1150 meters above the sea level; sited in the Apuan Alps Park of high Versilia, more precisely in a locality called "Paravii" by the natives. T
he company has an overview on the beneath valley, allowing people to enjoy a wonderful view of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, majestically dominated by the mountains of "Pania della Croce" and "Pizzo delle Saette".
The typical fauna is represented by wild boars, mouflons, roe deer, badgers, dormice, squirrels, porcupines, martens, buzzards, hawks, owls, barn owls and recently also the red partridge reintegrated by the Park Authority.
The wooded flora consists of chestnut trees, beeches, birches, beeches, rowan trees and boxwoods.
The barear flora consists of plums, walnuts, apple trees, maraschino cherries, berries, drupes and fruits of the undergrowth.
The area is rich of spontaneous aromatic and officinal plants such as hypericum and dandelion, traditionally used in the local basic cooking.
There are also rare floral varieties, studied by botanists from all over Europe, which occur in the "Torbiera di Fociomboli" called "Padule" which represents the largest wetland area of Apuane, a plateau of about 1 hectare that was the bed of an ice basin still keeping its typicity.
The organic farm is easily reachable, although exclusively on foot, through the C.A.I. Nr. 128-129-11 paths, where it's easy to relive ancient sensations and lost atmospheres.
