Poreta BioFarm is biodynamically organized. Absolutely NO chemicals. TOTALLY NATURAL…..t
Traditional farming methods used on this farm that are as old as time itself.
Organic farming at its best, using the sun, the moon and the stars.
There are no animals on the farm.
Poreta Bio Farm grows flowers (for honey), 3 types of bean, chick peas, barley, blackberries, raspberries, olives and grapes, employing ONLY the natural rhythms of the universe. All rather fascinating stuff.
Olive oil is produced on the farm.
The farm has been using these traditional methods for 400 years!
TRANQUILITY – but you can make NOISE!!
Totally tranquil environment. The only sounds are those of the countryside….birdsong and lots of it!
However, if you’re not into meditation, you can make as much noise as you like – shout, scream and play loud music at full volume. No neighbors!
The owners ONLY requirement is you respect their property!

|We travel to Italy often, and have stayed in many apartments, b&bs, agriturismi… This is one of the best experiences we’ve ever had! We stayed a week with our two children in the downstairs apartment. The rooms are spacious, the setting is beautiful, the location is convenient, and the hosts couldn’t have welcomed us more warmly. Everything you can imagine was provided: a breakfast pie, oil produced by the farm, fresh eggs… and more! We spent the days exploring the surrounding area, and nights eating outside and relaxing in the garden. Highly recommended!!|
