We are a small family farm using organic farming methods. Our farm was established in 2000 to grow spelt in the fields of Molise.
In 2015 we discovered our passion for bees and, by taking training courses, made it concrete by starting our journey in beekeeping. We then began producing organic Sulla honey from our honey bees on the banks of the Biferno River in the municipality of Castropignano (CB), where the sulla grows wild.
In 2017 we chose to process spelt to make finished products. We are especially proud of our workhorse: spelt galette. We know that spelt is not a particularly well-known food, as it used to be in the past, so we in the first place are committed to using it in cooking and experimenting with new recipes.
In 2021 we started a new project inherent to bees: a wellness apiary. The structure built allows people to benefit from the scents of the hive and the buzzing of bees and aims to bring young and old closer to the world of bees. It offers a unique multi-sensory experience of well-being and relaxation.
We have always focused on cultivation methods to respect the environment and health, using only organic fertilizers and banning chemical pesticides and herbicides. So we are proud to call ourselves BioSannio: Organic like our Samnite ancestors!
