“This is the purpose of exploration:
analyze the traces of happiness still to grasp” Italo Calvino

The agricultural farm

The land of the estate that we call the Palombaio has always been dedicated to agriculture, even in the days when it was a possession of the Holy Spirit in Sassia in Rome. The Agricultural Farm Monte del Palombaio is cultivated mainly with hazelnut, chestnut and olive trees. The harvest of the field starts mechanically from the hazelnuts in late summer and ends in November with the olives. The oil is pressed cold in the Frantoio of Canale Monterano. The preparation of the fields for the event of the harvest takes place during the other seasons, through which we do our best to emphasize the quality of products.
