In our grazing lands, we breed Fassone cows free and besides vines, we cultivate according to byodinamic method hectares of soil devoted to ancient seeds, like rye and small spelt and we produce three organic honeys.
High quality organic products
We consider La Raia as an unicum in which land, plants, animals and human presence are well balanced and all contribute to the wellbeing of the farm and the agricultural organic products we produce.
In our grazing lands, we breed Fassone cows free and besides vines, we cultivate 50 hectares of soil devoted to ancient seeds, like rye and small spelt.
La Raia also turned out to be an authentic biodiversity oasis for bees and other pollinating insects, which can still find such a variety of nectars and pollens able to grant to beehives health and productivity all year long, as it used to be in the past. The farm now produces three organic honeys: an aromatic early summer wildflower honey, a unique honeydew honey and a monofloral acacia honey.
Cereals, stone round flours and our meat can be bought through portaNatura, the service of selection and home delivery of products, vegetables and fruits produced by La Raia or by other biodynamic farms in the surroundings.
La Raia is the house of many apiaries since several years, from which three types of organic honey are born, and for many good reasons.
Each wild-flower honey is defined by a particular taste, smell and colour which recall the land where it is collected.
A liquid honey, due to its high content of fructose. Is is widely considered, for its texture, aroma and taste the quintessential honey sweetener.
It is a liquid honey which may crystallize with time. It comes from the honeydew, a sweet sap abandoned under the form of drops by insects which extract it from plants.
Within the estate we cultivate 50 hectares of soil devoted to ancient seeds such as monococcum and dicoccum einkorn, small spelt and rye.
Small spelt gives a flour that needs a shorter leavening compared to the other flour types.
Stone-ground emmer flour is used to make pasta: small penne, thin noodles, fusilli and tagliatelle made by Pasta d’Alba.
Spelt, sweet and light, is very similar to soft wheat.
Rye grains are used to prepare vegetable soups or, after they have been toasted and ground, to make a healthy drink that replaces coffee.
