Fattoria Poggio Alloro
Fattoria Poggio Alloro is a family-run organic farm that has belonged to the Fioroni brothers since 1972. It is still run by the same family today, now in its fourth generation.
Three brothers, Umberto, Amico and Bernardo, originally from the Marche region, moved to Tuscany in 1955 to work as sharecroppers and, only after long years of sacrifice, were they able to purchase the property.
The farm also began offering tourist accommodation in 1991, with a restaurant and wine-tasting service.
Today it has 200 hectares of land used for various organic productions, including 14 types of wine, durum wheat pasta, saffron, extra virgin olive oil and pulses.
A particular characteristic of the farm is the breeding of Chianina beef cattle and other farmyard animals such as hens, rabbits, pigs and bees for the production of wildflower honey.
Since 2018, the farm has also embarked on a path of renewal aimed at new sustainable energies.
