The Farm “Piano di Casciana” has a centuries-long tradition of care and passion for the agricultural products. Although our company is in step with the times and evolved in an accommodation facility for tourists, the passion for the “earth” is always at the center of our activities.
Organic honey produced by Edoardo
Edoardo, the youngest son of the owners, is the one that best preserves the ancient family passion.
Despite his young age, he has started in 2013 the breeding of bees, producing several kinds of a excellent honey strictly organic. The main feature is the rainbow of flavors that this honey contains, as the craftsmanship of small amounts makes it possible that every honey extraction has its particular smell and taste, each jar preserves the scent of flowers and has, following the season, a different taste: wildflowers, acacia, sunflower, chestnut which grown in the area of Piano di Casciana.
Agricultural machinery (the earth)
The beauty of Piano Casciana is its history, which you will notice seeing the old/antique machinery, many of them still work, the rural beauty of the buildings, the proximity to olive grove and animal stalls. Extended 22 hectares, the estate is partly cultivated of pastures of alfalfa, which has a fragrance and a unique taste that today you can find tasting the organic honey produced in the farm, while part of the land is also used for the production of organic vegetables that are consumed within the farm, in respect of seasonality and olive oil.
