The farm hosts many different species of animal, and is not only source for great eggs but also our poultry and pork meats. We harvest and collect as much as we can, keep bees are busy every day of the year. We are GMO, antibiotic and hormone free, use no chlorine on-site (except at the swimming pool), renewable energies and run a detailed recycling system.

 

The food:
The food offered at the Villa Montecastello follows the lead ‘you are what you eat’!
Food not simply to satisfy a need, to satiate, but food as an experience to heal yourself and be strong! With this credo we are not only serving food grown on the farm, but have over the years sourced directly from similar minded farmers ingredients from other parts of Italy, like pistachios, beans, flour and many more.
