Our history

The farm was established in the early 2000s with the purchase of the 12-hectare farm which we immediately began converting to organic farming, achieving official certification in 2006 (certified pursuant to EEC Regulation 834/2007 code Ck07 certification body CCPB).
Currently I grow pears, apples, peaches and soon two hectares of wine grapes, pignoletto, the white wine of our lands, will go into production.
But in order to practice organic production techniques, it is also crucial to take into great consideration the ecosystem in which production takes place, to create an “army of natural defense” for the plants themselves. Therefore, the farm has also a pond and various hedge zones have been introduced and developed to create a basin for beneficial insects: a natural defense barrier from the road and from neighbors practicing traditional agriculture.
My interest in organic production techniques has led me to pay more attention to respecting the soil and its fertility and in general to the well-being of plants, by delving into and using biodynamics and agroecology. Experimenting with these techniques, which are even less impactful than organic farming, facinats me and I like to keep an alarm bell ringing of continuous farm improvement.

Over the years, I have also experienced various activities in the management of the farm house, through which I have met new people and suggestions.
The versatility of our structure and the green setting that surrounds it, has allowed us to address different guests in a multifunctional way.
Hospitality: we have 3 flats within the farmhouse for 10 beds. People come to us for the most varied reasons (work, tourism and meetings between relatives and friends) and I like to recount of some of the more particular encounters on my social pages (always protecting privacy) of Instagram and Facebook with the title “Gli incontri del Biononno “.

Educational farm: for the past twenty years or so I have been welcoming school groups on school trips to my farm offering them workshops and insides into organic farming and life in the countryside. All this is clearly related to their age and in close collaboration with their teachers with whom I plan the visit in detail. For this activity I also use a small multimedia “museum” that I have created in the farm which I call “the place of the speaking things”.
Social farm: I also collaborate with educators from centers for the disabled person and social cooperatives in carrying out ad hoc projects in view of educational activities aimed at people with some kind of disadvantage.
Exclusive parties and events: the rooms and the park can be made available to families wishing to celebrate a birthday, to groups wishing to spend a relaxing day or for the most diverse needs.
Corporate and training activities: the farmhouse, also thanks to the collaboration of some professionals, can host corporate training activities such as team experience and team building, modulating the organization according to need and allowing participants to enjoy a relaxing but at the same time stimulating and inspiring.

Enotourism: from May 2021 the implementation of this new activity will make it possible to organize themed evenings and wine and food tastings, with the appreciations of the territory and its excellence.
Since the beginning of this adventure, my four children have also grown up, who today, in an occasional but precious way, collaborate with me in the activities of the farm and agritourism. And this is a source of great joy for me.

In proposing the Biononno our guiding principle is “It is up to you to decide which activity to carry out, it is up to us to ensure you an environment that is as pleasant as possible”
