THE AGRICULTURAL COMPANY
Among arable land, pastures, woods, olive groves and orchards, the farm covers an area of about 250 hectares, variously and intensively cultivated: to the traditional and centuries-old crops of olive trees and cereals such as wheat and barley, other crops have been added over the years such as sugar beet, tomatoes and string beans, all collected mechanically.
Moreover, the cultivation of precocious peaches and greenhouse vegetables is of considerable quality.
The processing of the products is taken care of directly by the owners according to organic and integrated farming techniques that, by combining the old rural tradition with modern innovations, improve the quality of the result without affecting its genuineness. The fruit and vegetables are intended for guests of the accommodation: at the Casa di Botro fruit and vegetables really go “from producer to consumer”! But we do not neglect the goodness of other productions: chickens, rabbits, pigs and calves, all locally raised, guarantee the guests of the farm always fresh and genuine meat.
