Eco-compatibility and terrain: The challenge of the organic farm of Raffaele Palma.

Raffaele Palma began this ambitious project in 2005, and the land itself stretches vertically from just 50 meters above sea level to the highest point of 450 meters above sea level.

The reconstruction and reparation of an old building now being used as a cellar are just part of the renovation project breathing life back into a land that was all but abandoned. To ensure the high quality of our products, it is essential that the structures themselves are in top working order, in turn guaranteeing the authenticity and quality of the final product. From the labor of this land, wine, lemons and olive oil are produced organically and most certainly are appreciated for their unique flavor and taste.

The farm has put in place a preservation act bringing back the healthy production of abandoned olive and citrus trees, planting grapes for vineyards, while always respecting the natural plant and wildlife that is already in existence on the unpolluted land that surrounds the cultivated land.

It is not uncommon to find the presence of wild boar, badgers, snakes, and falcons. These animals can occasionally cause damage to the farmland, but their presence only demonstrates the pristine and unspoiled nature from which our land emerges. Bees are also attracted to this area having found an ideal environment to produce generous amounts of exceptional honey.

The farm’s operation is completely in-line with eco-compatible methods. Organic cultivation is also supported by other measures, such as: the salvage of the cultivated remains, controlling the correct timing into the intervention of the plants health, and the monitoring of climatic conditions by using meteorological stations situated on the farm. Correct disposal of agrochemicals containers is critical, and the disposal of the compost/organic correctors  to the necessary specialized facilities has been established. The farm staff has also been trained in the conservation and care of the surrounding wildlife as stated in the legislation Act of “Natura 2000” which was created by the EU to protect the most threatened habitats and species across Europe.
