WHO ARE WE?

Hello! Let us introduce ourselves: we are two guys and we’ve been friends for over 20 years. We both have a passion for tradition: the most important thing we have -in our opinion- and something that is too often not valued enough and left aside. That is why we told ourselves: how can we create a job -and not just a hobby- while enhancing our tradition and our territory? The answer is quite easy: we want to produce something genuine and natural in our territory. Our main goal is to make of our biggest passion a life-long job. Would you like to know how?

OUR GOAL

We have at our disposal some land in our region’s (Marche) hinterland which is famous for its agri-food culture. These land have been uncultivated for years and since our community is not going through an economically-positive moment, we are firmly convinced that, to bring a beacon of hope to our generation and to help our community, we need to go back to agriculture. We realized how some time we eat products that were produced from all over the world even though they could easily be grown in our own territory. Therefore we decided to start growing berries, always tasty and genuine, that can’t be found in our region and are imported from other countries. In order to achieve our goal we focused on the theoretical and practical study of these plants by attending classes in specific companies and analyzing the soil of our plots. We are working very hard to make our dream become a reality and we will be honored to receive your help.

ABOUT OUR PROJECT

The cultivation of berries is not as easy as it may seem, the expenses we have to face are a lot and cannot be underestimated since we aim to have a high-quality product. We would like to grow the following strains: raspberries (Rubus idaeus), blackberries (Rubus ulmifolius) and blueberries (Vaccinum sp.); these plants need supportive stakes, an abundance of organic material, shady tarpaulin and an efficient drip irrigation system for the mulching. Since the fresh product is easily perishable, having a specific area for a laboratory -to process the fruit- is advisable. Thanks to the use of special machineries the laboratory allows to extend the product’s shelf-life and also to process the fruit in order to make juices, jam and such things -which can be both consumed or processed again.

OUR REQUEST 

We ask for a jump-start amount that will allow us to face the initial expenses. Should your donations exceed our goal, we will use the extra money to improve and extend (with blast chillier, freezers, autoclave etc.) our company. This pie chart shows how the amount we asked for will be spent.

REWARDS

Since this is still a work in progress we can’t provide our own product. Therefore, we thought to offer you the products that make our territory famous and unique: the result of master craftsmen’s work that has been passed on for many generations. This works are made by the artisan Emiliano Scattolini and Luigi Mecella. 

Watermarks is a fine type of paper that depicts religious drawings;

Leather keyring with our logo (this is prototype and we will show you as soon as possible the definitive design);  

Hand-made notepad (this is prototype and we will show you as soon as possible the definitive design);

Personalized writings/poems enriched with calligraphic ornaments. Calligraphy was born in Italy at the beginning of the fifteenth century and it is the origin of modern cursive used in every western country, it is used for ornamenting and it gives off renaissance vibes. Amongst the most known users of this kind of writing there is Leonardo da Vinci.This work is made by Lorenzo Paciaroni with the handcrafted paper by Luigi Mecella.

Culinary specialties:

We are offering -in collaboration with Tritelli charcuterie- some of our typical local products, great examples of the center of Italy’s culinary tradition.

Risks and challenges

The risks of this project are very low, the amount of money that we will recieve will be entirely invested. Should we get more money than we had thought, we will store it and invest it in the future of our company.

Since the rewards we promised are all handmade, there could be a slight delay in the shipment -in which case you will obviusly be notified.
