I Contadini - Ugento (LE) - Apulia

Why we chose them
"I Contadini " farm, run today by the third generation, has been founded in one of the most suitable areas for the cultivation of vegetables, in Apulia, more exactly in Salento, the so-called "land of sun, sea and wind". The fantastic climate of this land, warmed by sun all over the year, together with fertile ground structure and positive sea influence, is perfect to obtain excellent tomatoes and all kind of vegetables. An "integrated production" technique is applied to cultivate more than 20 hectares of open fields vegetables: long tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, eggplants, courgettes, sweet and hot peppers, artichokes. Vegetables are naturally dried up by the sun of Salento, so that all the water in excess is taken away and the product is preserved in its organoleptic and nutritive qualities. Drying vegetables in the sun is a very ancient art, today almost totally abandoned; even though difficult and delicate, it allows to obtain an absolute unique organoleptic result: softness of pulp, preservation of vitamins, proteins and mineral salts, and a special harmonic flavour which is by far more recognizable. Short production chain and short label: Edoardo Trentin, with his brothers, takes care of the all process, from cultivation to packaging in olive oil, without preservatives
