Orti delle Piane – natural farming is all about environmental recovery, where the territory is an intrinsic value for the entire community not only Alagna. It started in Dosso-Piane as an experiment to combat neglected territory and to stimulate agriculture showing how it is possible to obtain products of excellent quality without using chemical fertilizers also at high altitudes. The project initiates from a portion of the “ new forest” from the reclaimed land to recreate a natural and anthropic balance, redesigning the territory according to antique measures. The production follows and succumbs to the rhythm of the seasons, except for a short period in the greenhouse and preserves the biodiversity of this territory. (for example: antique qualities of apples) “Orto delle Piane” amongst many other things, offers advice about fruit trees, grafting and has a piece of ground available for those who wish to try their hand at agriculture. By reservation it is also possible to visit the fields or take a walk among the blossoming black cherry trees and organize educational outings. Those who wish to buy the products, can do so directly at the stall put up for these particular occasions and events or contact the producers directly for home deliveries. Otherwise ready-made delicacies can be found on the menu “ Orto delle Piane” at the Caffè delle Guide in Alagna, for those who prefer to taste the products grown immediately.
