A healthy and natural product obtained according to the rules of low-impact agriculture to protect the environment.
Cascina San Maiolo is a farm which rises amidst the paddy fields of lower Piedmont, the part of the Po Valley (Pianura Padana) that in springtime becomes an immense stretch of water that sparkles in the sun. Saint Majolus was an abbot of Cluny abbey around the year 950, that means that the farming tradition of Cascina San Maiolo dates back to the Early Middle Ages and is still carried on nowadays.
