Ancient Grains

As part of our project to help rural communities back into traditional farming, we have focused on heritage wheats that have been grown in the around Heartland in the mountains of Abruzzo. 

We have sought high and low to find the few people who still grow these landraces and aim to support projects further a field, around Italy and also in the UK, to grow these again. We are also creating a market for these amazing Italian wheats in the UK and love to teach people about how simple it is to make their own pasta, bread and much more.

Real Food

 Our primal contact with life is the taste of what we eat, and through it we aim to bring people back to the richness and depth of a way of farming that was lost, a depth of taste. Once in the not so long past we were peasant farmers, who were all geniuses at growing the best tasting foods, because they grew it for themselves, they did not grow it for profit, they grew it to eat. We are working to bring back those tastes as part of a social innovation in rural marginal areas programme, to give people back their secret farming methods.
