Although the cultivation of the grape was introduced by the Phoenicians, it is with the arrival of the Greeks (VIII century. BCE) we see a real vinifera development of agriculture and the introduction of oil production and the cultivation of grain. Only in 1200 are introduced citrus fruits that soon become the very symbol of Sicily.

With Italian economic boom and the advent of plastic agriculture experienced the spread of greenhouse vegetables were better protected and absorb more light which was held inside the same plastic, the local economy was overwhelmed by an unexpected wealth which made her one of the most intensive agricultural production in Italy.

Today, our goal is to promote sustainable agriculture that disrupts the processes of exploitation and poisoning the soil and restore the equilibrium that only the choice of the organic and integrated organic production can provide.

Organic Farm FaunaFlora

albero di carrubbe

The Organic Farm FaunaFlora was born in the countryside of Sicily (Ragusa) among olive, almond and carob trees.
From the passion for the land and an ancient culture, a young businesswoman has embarked on a daunting project: to grow organically to break the cycle of exploitation of the earth.
FaunaFlora stems from the awareness that g them modern lifestyles are unsustainable and that only a decisive change of direction can bring us closer to ecological models: the solution was to approach to natural rhythms, to a power supply based on local and seasonal a different relationship with the land and animals.
This choice has shown that a different relationship with the land must be respectful of the natural rhythms and shall exclude the products of synthesis, hence the obligation of organic farming, which together with a careful preservation of the culture and tradition of the country iblea (especially Vittoria), has become the driving force Fauna Flora transformed into a productive reality.
