The terrible smell that accompanies the use of pesticides is the original reason, perhaps not highly theoretical and certainly not very scientific, why our family began in the eighties to abandon the practice of conventional agriculture. The desire to maintain all the different plants present in our territory did the rest.
Safeguarding biodiversity and improving the soil by green or organic fertilizing, thus allowing the plants - for the most part local varietals - to better endure climate adversity, are the principal reasons behind our decision to choose a form of agriculture which is sustainable for the environment and for the people in it.
At Bosco Falconeria we cultivate biodiversity. Scattered across the farm you may meet up with:
6 almond trees; 5 lemons; juice, navel, Calabrian oval, and vanilla oranges; 1 tangerine; 3 clementines; 3 citrons; 4 persimmons; 25 pears; 3 apples; 4 loquats; 1 medlar; 19 avocados; 5 figs; 4 plums; 1 white and 2 red mulberries; biancolilla, cerasuola, nocellara and cipressino olives; 50 peaches; 4 pistacchios; wine and table grapes such as nero d’avola, zibibbo, catarratto, catarratto extra-lucido, cardinal, fragola, seedless, lacrime di Madonna and giugnina; 7 strawberry trees; 3 azeroles; 6 sorb-apples; 10 quinces; 4 sour and 4 sweet cherries; 10 grapefruits; 7 carob trees; prickly pears, myrtle, bay, hawthorne and lots more.
