In a interesting natural surroundings, where Valtellina and Valchiavenna join together in Lake of Como, in the nearby of two natural reserves (the Natural Reserve of Pian di Spagna and the Parco delle Orobie Valtellinesi) is situated the farm MAMBRETTI ALDO.
The farm was born in 2006 with the aim of promoting some agricultural products typical of a land that has always had a vocation for cropland. That is why we chose to use some lands which belonged to our family. Previously they were meadowlands, now we planted wildfruits: blueberries, raspberries and blackberries.
We are planning to develop and diversify our culture; meanwhile we want to increase the value of our products whit a BIO (organic) certification. We are already using environmentally friendly cultural techniques; in particular we are not using substances which are potentially dangerous in the different phases of the production. In September 2011 we entered the process to gain a Bio (organic) label.
Since 2009 we have basically been using fruit that we produce in our farm to produce jams and fruit nectars (juice and pulp).
This year we started the production of a small amount of maize for "polenta" (typical Valtellinese meal).
You can book a visit in our farmland; a visit lasts about an hour.
