Our Garden

Nestled 1000 feet above the sea, lies Mamma Agata's extraordinary vegetable, fruit, and flower garden—a true labor of love. The sheer passion and dedication poured into nurturing this organic oasis by my family are palpable with every leaf and blossom.

From the tender care lavished upon each plant to the meticulous cultivation practices employed, every aspect of the garden reflects a deep-rooted commitment to organic farming. Mamma Agata's unwavering belief in the importance of growing food naturally shines through in every stalk of celery, every ripe tomato, and every vibrant bloom.

But the magic doesn't stop there. Amongst the verdant rows of produce, our cherished hens roam freely, contributing their own special touch to the bounty. Their fresh eggs, gathered each morning with care, are an integral ingredient in Mamma Agata's renowned lemon cake—a recipe infused with love, passed down through generations.

In this garden, love, passion, and dedication intertwine seamlessly, nurturing not just the plants and animals, but also the souls of those who tend to them. It's a sanctuary where the rhythms of nature and the warmth of familial bonds converge, creating an atmosphere of harmony and abundance.

For Mamma Agata and our family, this garden is not just a source of sustenance—it's a sanctuary, a testament to the beauty of living in harmony with nature, and a reminder of the boundless potential of love and dedication."
