The Farm

The Azienda Agricola Fratelli Lippolis produces vegetables using techniques inspired by Mollison’s permaculture,Fukuoka‘s natural agrculture, synergistic agriculture and biodynamic agriculture, on a portion of the property of nearly 2 hectares.

Using these techniques we forecast the chemical-physical-structural re-equilibration of all the property: on the areas of the property previously used for crops, we have planned the plantation of about 8000 plants of fruit trees, leguminous trees and various kind of shrubs.

The following images show how the property was when it was bought (March 2010, left image) and how it will become in the years to come (right image):

100% Organic

Our fruits and vegetables are cultivated organically using much patience and lots of love!

The agricultural techniques offered by the above-mentioned methodologies tend to develop a self-sufficient, low-water-consumption agricultural micro-ecosystem that has already been successfully applied from the tropics to the Arctic Circle. This type of agriculture, unlike the so-called traditional agriculture, is more comparable to the development of an intensive agricultural-forest ecosystem , it does not involve the use of large machinery and / or chemical fertilizers.

Furthermore, the productive mix of fruit plants and plants beneficial for the soil ensures a process of rebalancing and continuous enrichment of the soil which guarantees an improvement in the quality and quantity of the crop in the time (instead of a progressive impoverishment typical of traditional agriculture), as well as the possibility of producing a high variety of vegetables and fruit thanks to the very high bio-diversity provided by the system.
