After studying at Aosta’s Istituto Agrario Regionale, Roberto and Morena went on to some on-the-job training abroad and then took over their paternal grandfather’s family farm, broadening and diversifying its activities. Business skills, the need to innovate, imagination and
enthusiasm of these two young farmers have made the dairy a national benchmark for new agricultural enterprise, garnering them an award at the national “Nuovi fattori di successo” event organized by the Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies. One of the reasons behind the award, in addition to the farm’s multifunctional approach and attention to environmental issues and animal welfare, was its “Agripasticceria” division, set up in 2013 by Roberto’s wife, Francesca, who honed her passion for patisserie to professional level and now applies her skill and imagination to make best use of the farm’s own raw materials. The cheese-making facilities are in the capable hands of Morena, who produces exquisite items from goat’s milk. The farm has also been awarded the Turin Chamber of Commerce title of “Maestro del Gusto 2017-18” (www.to.camcom.it/maestridelgusto).
