The hardworking Denise is helped by Daniele and Davide, who attend to the farming activities from sowing to harvesting and have set up a greenhouse where they grow vegetables and fruit following the organic methods of production, without the use of pesticides.
The incredible number of snails and wild fennels are considered proof of an uncontaminated territory as they are the first to disappear in case of pollution.
The young leader of the farm is personally involved in the making of a large number of products: liqueurs made out of lemons or herbs, dried, handpacked chickpeas and beans; plum jam “cosce di monaca” (it is an old and local variety of wild plum particularly appreciated for its special taste), apricot, pear, and cherry jam also employed in the making of the exquisite fruit cakes which are served at breakfast.
Nibbiano is also renown for the production of honey. Its 20 beehives produce different kinds of honey (royal jelly and propolis on request), and of an extraordinary extra-virgin olive oil, Denise's passion. She is in fact member of the Frantoio cooperativo di Montepulciano.
