Product description

The Cooperativa Agricola La Collina was founded in 1975, when 12 energized young men with ambitious visions aimed for something entirely new. Among them was Enea, who now runs a co-operative farm with agricultural and humanitarian achievements far beyond what could have been dreamed over 40 years ago. The core of this vision is that everyone on the farm would live like an extended family. The farming was to be traditional and the produce, some of Emilia’s most famous exports: Parmigiano Reggiano and Lambrusco. The hope was to be able to offer this close knit family environment to those less fortunate that were recovering from drug problems. Today all the visions of La Collina have been realized, and then some. They grow vegetables, fruits, cereals, keep livestock, make wine, sausages, honey, pasta, and meat products. In addition they are able to spread the knowledge of biodynamic farming through educational field-trips and workshops. Over the years they have helped many young adults with drug problems rehabilitate themselves and learn the joys of farming and community.
