Organic Agriculture  
The Country Communication Centre has its headquarters on the land of an organic farm of 7 hectares where agriculture is developed based on human wellbeing and rediscovering of ancient skills. The farm specialises in the cultivation of flax, Italian hemp, arundo donax and other perennial species already present since the Etruscan times.

Harvest of the flax

Each year we offer a workshop of Stefania Brandinelli in spinning flax,
making use of the tradional Etruscan techniques.

The final product

  The CCC produces ethnic-gastronomic specialities made by hand with care and love, based on own production of Flax and Hemp. Part of the land has been left fallow for many years and is "virgin ground" where many indigenous herbs and medical plants such as Bach flowers are growing.

Vittoriana, the secretary of the Country Communication Center, is an expert in
organic food, flower therapy and Bach flower remedies.
