Three Farms in a Island

The ancient Greeks called it Trinacria, meaning “Three pointed”, from Akra, “end, point or headland” and Treis, “Three”. Deriving the name of the largest island in the Mediterranean from its shape…today we know it as Sicily.

It is here in the South East of Sicily that we operate our 3 small family-run organic farms. Although the farms have been in our family (only) since the 70’s some of our wild trees and roots date back way longer and we estimate that some were planted more than 400 years ago. 

We farm our delicious organic produce applying Biodynamic and Agroecological practices alongside historic and traditional farming methods and crops. Our passion is to farm great food for people who really care about it. 

Make good food from scratch. 

Our ethos and the core of everything we do circles around growing good, healthy, and truly organic food while applying and seeking to finetune long term sustainable practices, not just grow products for maximum profit. We achieve this by looking back in history to identify solutions anchored in tradition which help us resolve our modern problems and which allow us to cultivate our lands with respect for wildlife and great attention to the regeneration of our soil. 

Our “make good food from scratch” philosophy drives us forward every day at the farm pushing us to look after our soil and promote a resilient and regenerative farm life.

Agroecological Farming

It was clear from the start: our modern way of farming is not compatible with the current ecological situation and we believe that we must look at the old traditional techniques to uncover an old/new way of farming. 

We all witness with every passing year that this becomes more of a necessity. 

We live the farm like a home, in harmony and respecting mother nature, not like a food factory. Giving bees a vast variety of plants to pollinate, granting trees the time to grow well, allowing the soil to create its own network peacefully. 

“All these meetings around the same table converged around these topics: good food, how to produce it, how to distribute it. Inevitably the conversations would lead to deeper reflections about the truest and most important issues surrounding food and culture.”

We use our food production to build and regenerate our food system model and to share our knowledge, values and believes where environmental and economic aspects join to enhance the social material of our region. 

For this approach to be fruitful it requires crucial personal consumer choices which is why our produce is aimed at people who want to deal in a more conscious and authentic way with food which requires less process and more quality.
