The Colle San Michele farm was started in the 1980s and lies at the foot of the Borgo San Michele hill near Nizza Monferrato. The area is recognized for its quality produce, a result of the climate and land, which is particularly suited to growing the excellent Slow Food Presidium "Hunchback Cardoon". With their knowledgeable background, Rosanna and Lino have revived traditional Piedmontese recipes and launched a line of choice products called "Le Delizie di Rosanna". In addition to producing jams with aromatic herbs, Rosanna grows old aromatic and ornamental herb varieties for infusions and teas which enhance the gardens. The products are organically grown and only available in limited quantities as they are seasonal and only self-produced.

Immersed in the woods of the Upper Langhe in the municipality of Mombarcaro, Amaltea farm was started in 2007. The green surroundings and tranquility immediately inspire respect for the environment and biodiversity in running the farm. It was decided to farm Langhe sheep (an endangered breed) and join the consortium for the conservation and promotion of the Upper Belbo Valley potato. The farm's 17 hectares includes meadows, pastures, fields and woods. It has used Ecocert certified organic methods since early 2009.

Angelo Poggio - Honey   Angelo Poggio - Honey

Cascina Poggio delle Viole is a small beekeeping business located in the remote hills of Cravanzana, north of the Belbo valley.
It is a family-run activity, with Angelo and his wife Teresita sharing the same passion for beekeeping, nature and the woodlands of the Upper Langhe. A long way from intensive crops and environmental pollution, the surrounding woods provide the bees with blossom from acacia, cherry, chestnut and lime trees.
They produce a variety of types of honey from a wide area, ranging from quality lavender honey collected at the foot of the Ligurian valleys to mountain honey from the upper Po valley.
Extraction is carried out without using heat in order to maintain all the natural properties of the honey.

Massimo Giordano - Sheep and cow's milk cheese   Massimo Giordano - Sheep and cow's milk cheese

Situated in the Upper Langhe, this farm has operated for several generations, focusing on sheep and cattle whose milk is used to make highly-regarded cheese.
Massimo, helped by members of the family, runs the farm and produces traditional PDO cheeses exclusively using milk from his animals; the sheep and cattle are free range or given fresh forage and feed produced by the farm. The sheep and cow's milk, mixed in varying proportions according to the desired product, is processed raw with only the addition of rennet and salt.
The cheese is sold fresh or aged in refrigerated rooms. Due to the 800 meter altitude, a cool, breezy climate and the type of feed, the product never has a standardized taste. A constant focus on animal welfare, tradition and technological improvements, particularly regarding hygiene, allows raw milk to be processed safely and turned into top quality cheese.
