The FARM

We aim to develop a multifunctional organic cereal farm for the conservation and enhancement of the vast Italian cereal biodiversity through on-site processing of flour, marketing and local branding and Transform residues of cereal cultivation in biodegradable bioplastics chitin, thus promoting and stimulating the bioeconomy, innovation and sustainability in agriculture.

Playground

We offer services to those who need to manage technologies and to startups that need to improve efficiency develop an agricultural field station for testing farm innovations, supporting training courses and experimentation in areas in precision farming and big data analysis.

We want to create a fun yet focused-driven space where like-minded startuppers can share and learn together in an Incubator made up of diverse spaces, laboratories and land plots. created to encourage the creation and development of Agtech businesses ready to host young people from all over the world who want to experiment with new business models in agriculture.
