About the Producer, Mulino Val’D’Orcia :
Mulino Val d’Orcia was born 10 years ago thanks to an intuitive idea of Luchino, who decided to buy the mill and a small kneading machine. his son Amedeo thus began to participate in short supply chain markets to make their products known and thanks to the success achieved, passion and commitment, the idea born for fun has turned into an excellence: a unique production reality in the area.
The Azienda Agricola Grappi Luchino has been producing organically since 1992 in the town of Pienza, in the heart of the Val d’Orcia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site for the beauty of the landscape and the balance between nature and human activity.
The farm, run by the family for generations, covers more than 100 hectares, 85 of which are arable land where they grow cereals such as durum wheat, soft wheat, spelt, oats and barley in rotation with grain legumes such as chickpeas, lentils and beans.
Their history is rooted in the sharecropping tradition and the passion and love for the land has been handed down from father to son for generations, in fact the mill is now located in the building that once housed the shed of agricultural tools of grandparents sharecroppers renovated according to the tradition of the Sienese countryside.
