Love for agriculture is born
from love for the landscape.
A new search for quality
develops from the family farm.
La Gramigna is a small farm in Sieci, on the hills to the east of Florence, where Renata began, in 1990, to cultivate the land around her home. The Tuscan landscape, with its balance between nature and culture, has inspired the choice to produce exclusively ORGANIC (BIO) fruit, vegetables, wine and organic extra virgin olive oil.
The farm has grown over the years but its philosophy has not changed: to produce quantities limited to the best quality, with the greatest respect for natural balances.
The Gramigna olive oil has been awarded by bioPress (D) e BIOL (I), among the 10 best organic olive oil in 2017.
In addition to olive oil, the main organic products of Gramigna are dried legumes (beans and chickpeas); tomato sauce, peeled tomatoes and tomato sauce; the Florentine black cabbage pesto; fruit jams (cherries, figs, prunes, apricots, peaches) and other minor products.
An Organic story.
Our family moved to the Podere del Pino in 1990; these lands were the first ones we converted to organic crops. Even the land we purchased later, have been converted to organic farming.
Since 2002 all our products are ORGANIC certified by ICEA - Institute for Ethical and Environmental Certification (www.icea.bio).
The organic choice was, above all, dictated by our family needs: we still eat what we produce in our garden, in our fields, in our chicken house. To our family we then added those of friends and then, of course, we opened up to a small market of connoisseurs. Our principle is simply:
"little but good"
A matter of conscience.
Producing respecting human health and the natural environment is one of our commitments. We are small, but aware that everyone must do his part in the search for a world that is more just and hospitable for everyone. This is why we also produce the energy (thermal and electrical) that the farm needs at home, and we are helped by our regular employees.
We are conscious of operating in one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world, so we try to preserve the appearance of the places, the ancient artifacts and the traces of the traditional agricultural arrangements.
Our organic products are a reason for comparison and collaboration with those who study nutrition and health, and with the best gourmets.
