i.e. Expect food porn galore ahead.
No picture of the three brothers but I love their story:
Their parents decided to have a farm (in the area of Arezzo, in Tuscany) and decided that it should be an organic farm. Way before it became fashionable. And not only that, but they also decided to apply biodynamics, based on a theory developped by Steiner in the 1920's. Although it is a lot based on old farming knowledge and wisdom (using the lunar phases, for instance), such knowledge had gone a little lost in the quest for "modernity", that two headed monster that appears to smile upon us while poisoning our worls at the same time.
Thus was Fattoria La Vialla born.
A generation further down the line and the farm boasts - and with reason - of having excellent products while achieving a negative CO2 footprint (and not a tiny negative impact either, the assessment performed shows that "Overall, the La Vialla farm has a negative CO2 footprint and annually achieves the storage of 1.971.495.69 Kg of CO2eq")!
Do read the whole report, it is fascinating.
For this reason, they had been invited to the Copenhagen summit last year, where our Earth Observation Director discovered them and subsequently invited them for a visit at ESRIN, to present their products.
( And yesterday evening, they did. )
Evviva La Vialla!
