BioAlberti - Poggio Aquilone (TR) - Umbria
Why we chose them
We are in Umbria, in Poggio Aquilone, a very small village of 1200 between the province of Perugia and that of Terni: 560 hectares of woods, meadows, pastures and arable fields. Today BioAlberti is a family business in the third generation: the goal of Paola and Guido Alberti, to which Benedetta and Andrea have recently joined, is to enhance Umbrian traditions and recover local products, typical of central Italy, with great attention to the environment. In 1996 BioAlberti chose to embrace organic farming. More recently it has started a collaboration with the University of Perugia for the recovery of ancient Umbrian grains and legumes, such as einkorn spelled, gradually abandoned over the years because it is not very productive, and black chickpea. Every year the company experiments with new cultivation techniques: for example the synergistic one, associating cereals and legumes in the same field, to increase the productivity and self-defense of plants without the use of chemical fertilizers and without pesticides. Cereals, dried legumes, soups, but also flours, both from cereals and legumes, and an original chickpea pate: all organic products and without additives or preservatives.
