Organic chickpeas
For years we have grown a variety called "pascià", that has a rough coat and a medium-large seed calibre.
Chickpeas are excellent both as a side dish and as a main course in many recipes. In the night, put them to soak in water, adding a teaspoon of bicarb and the day after boil them for about one hour.
Organic vegetables
All year round we grow many varieties of seasonal vegetables: lettuces, artichokes, tomatoes, aubergines, peppers, fennels, cabbages and cauliflowers, etc..
In late summer pumpkins stand out. We grow several varieties: Musquee de Provence, Red Kuri, Marina di Chioggia, Butternut...

Organic sweet potatoes
Although not much consumed in Europe, the sweet potato is considered a staple food in the rest of the world. Among the healthiest foods, peel and leaves included, it contain large amounts of antioxidants and beta-carotene. Its use for cooking is similar to the one of the potato.
We cultivate the "beauregard" (orange flesh) and "murasaki" (purple flesh) varieties.
Organic potatoes
They can not miss the potatoes, that we sow towards the end of February, if weather permits it.
We mainly grow "Spunta" variety, with yellow and compact flesh, suitable for any type of cooking because it absorbs little quantities of oil, and "desirée" variety, with red and mealy flesh, suitable, for example, to prepare purées.
cape gooseberry
cape gooseberry
Organic cape gooseberry
Cape gooseberry is a small and delicious yellow-orange fruit enclosed inside a petals calyx and has Peruvian origin.
Its flavour could look like a sweet little tomato and it can be used to garnish cakes or to make jams, as well as for direct consumption.
In the farm we have some hives that produce a small amount of honey at a hobbyist level.
This is a wildflower honey, but since we have an extended eucalyptus wood, around August our honey, for taste and colour, looks just like a very good eucalyptus honey.
