With passion and dedication San Michele a Torri has been maintaining for years a production system based on respect for nature and aimed to obtain some real specialities. From small chickpeas of Chianti – little jewels organically grown – to pearl spelt, saffron – hand-picked in October – and Marano corn which produces a unique, intense and scented flour. Bees, essential in an organic farm, produce an excellent mixed-flower honey coming from the pollen of numerous plants which gives it a complex taste and floral scent. San Michele a Torri have started the rearing of Cinta Senese porks, as well. Cinta Senese pork is a Tuscan PDO (Protected Denomination Origin): it was once at risk of extinction and rediscovered and enhanced about ten years ago due to the high quality of its meat. We believe animals have the right to live with dignity even though intended for slaughter: in fact our animals are raised in a semi-wild state and fed with grass and simple cereals as corn and field beans. The obtained meat is processed by our pork-butcher Luca Magazzini who, with passion and respect for traditions produces great salami. Hens from Livorno could not miss from the farm: free range and organically fed, they everyday produce extremely fresh eggs with a very light-colored yolk.
