Who We Are

"The passion for nature is second only to that for our tradition."

The history of our farm dates back to 1940, when Grandfather Ugo moved to the uncultivated and wild lands of the Ghiardo di Bibbiano, Not far from Reggio Emilia: with a large land reclamation project, the grandfather was laying the foundations for what would become a modern farm. .
At the disappearance of the great-grandfather, it was his son Ennio who took over the company: with tenacity and determination, he continued the land reclamation work, thus allowing the cultivation of fodder for the dairy cows. The first modern barn was built in 1963: it could accommodate 50 head of cattle and the milk produced was processed in social dairies, of which Ennio himself was the president.

Then Ennio's children were born., Ugo and Bruno, The current owners, who have been in love with their land since childhood, decided from the beginning to dedicate themselves to agricultural activities. Their presence on the farm gave a strong impetus to a systematic and constant expansion over time, both in terms of the agricultural land area to be cultivated and the number of animals raised in the numerous stables on the property.
In 1998, Grandfather Ennio passed away, and in memory of his love for the family business, in 1999 the children inaugurated the... company outlet with the direct sale of products. .
