Our farm is located in the picturesque Sentina Regional Nature Reserve, an area that, thanks to its landscapes that alternate between land and water, is an important migratory and breeding point for much wildlife and is a place where nature and farmland coexist.
The land that is part of the reserve today was originally called the Selva Giurata (literally, “Sworn Forest”) in a document dating back to 1538. The area was a swampland at the time, and its reclamation began in 1790 when Pope Pius VI granted it to Gioacchino Laureati under a perpetual lease.
This historical and natural backdrop is the setting for SelvaGiurata® - an old farm that we have built back up thanks to a desire to make a positive life change.
We made the decision to renovate our small, family-run farm in order to rebuild what remains of the building dating back to the 1800s. Our focus has been on modernizing production, respecting tradition, and focusing on small-scale production that guarantees the highest of quality and respect for the environment and clients who put their trust in us.
Half of the area of our fields, located far from urban centers, is located in the reserve and dedicated to grains, and the other half can be found on the nearby Monte Renzo, where we have our olive grove and also grow more grain.
Our production is focused on extra virgin olive oil, olive wood chips for grilling, and artisanal pasta. All products are locally produced and SelvaGiurata® branded.
