The aspect that has most impressed us on the Farmers is the link with the territory and
tradition. The vegetables are all produced in the company, with integrated production, in the
fields near the plant, in the province of Lecce in Puglia. The vegetables are dried in the sun
on racks as tradition dictates, it is, in fact, a very old practice and now almost totally
abandoned because difficult and delicate, but that offers an unparalleled organoleptic result.
It is already ready to be served at the table both as an appetizer and as a side dish.
Chopping vegetables can be used to dress salad rice or a fresh pasta
