Il Cortile Delle Delizie in Montegrosso
Il Cortile delle Delizie was founded in 2016 in Montegrosso Cinaglio, a fraction of the municipality of Asti. It is a small town in the Asti Monferrato characterized by a predominantly hilly conformation where peace and tranquility reign supreme and where all the inhabitants know each other and are called by name. Here we have restored some rooms, including an old barn meeting point in times past for the inhabitants of neighboring houses, and we have created a workshop, with an adjoining store, where we transform the products of the earth that we treat and cultivate every day.
We have chosen to grow our fruit and vegetables following the organic method and therefore we have made the conscious decision not to use synthetic products, such as fertilizers, insecticides, herbicides and fungicides that are used in conventional agriculture, because we consider them dangerous for the health of people and the environment, nor do we use agricultural methods that disrespect the biological cycles of natural ecosystems. In the land where we work we try to achieve an increase in biodiversity, fertilization occurs only with natural fertilizers of organic origin and we give great importance to maintaining the balance of land using non-aggressive agricultural techniques and following the rotation of crops, in this way the principles Nutrients of the soil are not depleted, but can, from season to season, reform, as the different crops consume and bring different substances and elements. By doing so, we obtain products rich in trace elements that promote health, as well as having a look and taste of the past.
We believe in a future in which there is direct contact between producer and consumer, so as to allow the latter to be able to eat foods from realities that he has seen and touched by hand and in turn, the producer will have the possibility to convey the value of products that are the fruit of love, passion and awareness of the fact that food is the primary source of health or illness of our body.
