Produce from a glorious past, rediscovered after many years, and brought back to our table. Produce full of meaning, value and virtues.
Finding connections to our heritage, through the rediscovery of ancient unmodified crops.
Ancient grains from certified supply chains in Emilia Romagna, grown from a mix of ancient seeds of soft wheat.
There’s a tight link between biodiversityand good health. The scientific community has recently found out a connection between the decrease of biodiversity and the increase of inflammatory-based diseases: our immune system is weaker and our microbioma is suffering.
If we want to preserve this richness (and our health) we need to defend and valorise our local produceand our local farmers, by investing in research of ancient varieties.
Native stone-ground live flours with wheat germ, names rich in history and old-fashioned charm, traditions and crops that are returning, increasingly in demand, to the fore.
Rigorously ground with natural stone in the heart of Modica, each grain is processed at low temperatures to preserve aromas, flavors and nutritional value.
Malloreddos e Fregola
Based on local durum wheat semolina, typical shapes of the popular tradition handcrafted through slow drying at low temperatures (20 hours, 35 °C). Thanks to the low drying temperatures, the pasta maintains a compact and elastic consistency even after cooking, remaining a “living” product and ensuring greater digestibility.
Local & Fair Trade
We work together with sensitive realities, characterized by a social and ethical approach to work (type B associations, business networks) which operate in the territory and support the typical delicacies and traditions of that same territory.
