More information about Fattoria Il Rosmarino
Fattoria Il Rosmarino, born in 1993, in its 18 hectares implements the principles of organic farming and permaculture. In the vicinity of the Lagoon of Venice, in Marcon, Cristina and Piergiorgio cultivate their fields trying to maintain the richness of the land to obtain genuine products with unaltered nutritional properties.
With the aim of preserving every form of biodiversity, opposing the standardization and trivialization of crops, they privilege those varieties typical of the territory that are now increasingly rare. In recent years, the company has been involved in a project of short-chain of ancient cereals, specializing in the cultivation of spelt monocoque, soft wheat Piave and Canove, spelt, world barley, corn (Marano, Bianco Perla), oats, rye and other grains.
Thanks to the differentiation of crops, the company is able to offer a cornucopia of natural organic food of high-quality representative of the territory.
The remaining part of the land is used for grazing necessary for the breeding of Haflinger horses. These horses help with the cultivation of the fields and for educational purposes. The farm is also home to other animals often rescued from the slaughterhouse or from difficult situations: donkeys, goats, chickens and ducks; they too testify to the importance of preserving biodiversity.
The farm belongs to the circuit of educational farms in the Veneto region. It organizes environmental and food education activities for all age groups and summer centres during the months of June, July and August, with particular attention to naturalistic and socio-educational activities.
The educational workshops are multi-sensory and interactive paths that bring children and adults closer to the rural reality of the countryside. It is possible to take part in thematic courses on honey and bees, workshops on ancient cereals and bread-making, activities on medicinal herbs and horticulture and much more…
The farm supports and integrates with the offer of cultural services, educational, welfare, rehabilitation, therapeutic, training, employment for disadvantaged people. The family environment offers the guest daily contact with other people, inserted in a humanly rich context. The combination of these elements together with contact with nature and animals allow a positive and complete approach to bio-psycho-social well-being, which few other interventions can achieve.
