A life in the countryside producing good healthy food. In this way we can summarize in a few words the world inside the Podere Il Casale. The dream of Sandra and Ulysses, who moved from Switzerland to Val d’Orcia in the Eighties.
Olive trees, vines and wheat. To which have been added beekeeping, garden cultivation, pig, sheep and goat breeding. A varied production, in favor of biodiversity, just as it was once done in the farming world. Today the Podere Il Casale is a self-sufficient farm, both from a food and energy point of view.
On the table, the classics of Tuscan cuisine, but also some contamination. The ancient grains of fresh pasta, vegetables from the garden, farm animals and cheeses from the dairy: pecorino, goat, ricotta, feta and quark.
Every Saturday, the farm hosts the market where you can buy the farmhouse products, as well as fresh bread and ready-to-go meals. For those who want to taste the Tuscan flavors even from home, the products of Podere Il Casale are for sale online.
