Description

The agriturismo “Orticaia Chiesa” stands out over the top of a rich, cultivated hill overlooking the unmistakable valley of the Mugello area. (The toponym “Orticaia” derives from the Latin word “Ortus” or “cultivated”.) The building is part of the San Iacopo a Orticaia complex where you may find the church, rectory, the “Villetta” farmhouse and agricultural annexes. It lies less than 3 kilometers from the chief town of Dicomano, 363 meters above sea level. It was once the home of the monks of Camaldoli and documentation reveals its history back to the year 1100. During your stay you may enjoy tasting the typical products of the farm, all of which are created using the antique Tuscan farmers’ traditions. The Azienda Agricola Orticaia began in 2001, following its initial purchase in 1998 from the owner Dino Baroni. He had always maintained farming activities first as a sharecropper and then as a direct renting farmer since 1983. The farming company raises cattle of the Limousine breed with the line “Vacca-Vitello” that are for the most part the top line registered in the Genealogical Book of Breeds. The farming company cultivates vineyards and olive trees as well as the “Marrone” (chestnuts) IGP of Mugello and Small Fruits, such as ribes (red currant), blackberries and rasberries. These various products are obtained with practical traditional farming methods having a low impact on the environment and also respect the regulations of biological agriculture.
