In the heart of Tuscany

Fruit and Vegetable Vocation

Our farm lies in the Valdichiana, divided into very different plots, along the Canale della Chiana. Strategic choice, which allows us to take advantage of as many natural qualities as this splendid region can offer us. We specialize in horticulture as we have combined the wisdom of our ancestors with the most avant-garde modern technologies. At the same time we are fruit growers, striving to get the best from young apple trees of the most diverse varieties.
 We pay meticulous attention to all our crops, from sowing or transplanting to harvesting, an entire and exclusive business process. This allows us to be absolutely certain and proud of the authenticity of our products.

EVERY FRUIT IS ALSO A FLOWER


At La Colmata we respect
nature and its cycles

The product that is planted and grown on our land is certified, and respects the cycles of Nature. We draw clear and pure water from our own wells, rigorously controlled and tested by experts. We leave all the rest to Nature itself, which has always nurtured them in the best possible way.

OUR MAIN PRODUCTIONS

The specialties of our farm

Artichokes

These are vegetables of Mediterranean origin, rich in active ingredients that impart purifying, digestive and anti-cholesterol properties. The Greeks called them Kinara, the Romans cynara, the current name of the artichoke derives from the Arabic al kharshuf.

Tomatoes

In the Medici Senensis Commentarii of 1544, they were defined as bad gold or golden apples for their golden yellow color before the last stage of maturation. The ripe fruit is rich in nutrients, albeit low in calories.

Melons

Cultivated for the Popes, in the summer residence of Cantalupo, near Rome, from which the name derives. Melons are characterized by a great richness of provitamin A due to the orange color of the pulp.

Asparagus

With diuretic properties, it is appreciated by gourmets and has a thousand-year history behind it. Roman emperors liked asparagus so much that they were said to have built special ships to go and collect them, ships called “Asparagus”.

Cauliflowers

Thanks to the perfect balance of their components, they exert a beneficial effect on the health of the whole body and contain few calories.
The Romans ate them raw, before banquets, to help the body better absorb alcohol.

Apples

There are about 2000 different varieties. Ideal as fruit to end the meal as they provide a good fiber content, about double that of cherries and about triple that of strawberries; composed of 83% water and therefore an excellent source of rehydration.
