The land, a family passion
For over fifty years, the Daidone family has been dedicated to the agricultural cultivation of Podere il Moro. In ancient times, the farm land was part of a much larger estate, as evidenced by the coat of arms which is the same as that of other neighboring farms.
About ten years ago, the company was converted to organic farming. The company is associated with Coldiretti, an Organisation of agricultural entrepreneurs at national and European level.
The benefits of organic farming
