MASSERIA

 

Torrevecchia’s beating heart  is the farm with its  livestock and its fields. Originally the termMasseriareferred to  the colonial houses of wealthy landowners. The farms , run by the so called massari, were based on a virtuous circleof self-subsistence and  included stables, grain stores  and even the accommodation of those who cultivated the land.That original function was re-created  by building, within walking distance from the old one, a new farmhouse with adjoining the farm, the dairy and the olive oil mill.

 

Covering  over 200 hectares, the farming business specializes in the production of  a rich variety of cereal crops, for the supply of sheep, cattle, goats, pigs and poultry, ensuring a full control of the entire supply chain starting from the food we rear our animals with.
