ORIGIN OF THE TOMATO: ITALY.
"Born and raised in lower Salento, we spent our childhood in close contact with nature and sunny fields, where Grandfather Fiumano grew capers. We are three very different brothers but united by a great passion.
An ancient rite is that of drying the tomato became one of the most important activities in the initial phase of our journey, then flanked over the years by the cultivation of other vegetables that we manage at all stages, from seedlings to the finished product.
We are rapidly expanding our crops to the surrounding lands, which are by their nature, uncultivated and inhospitable, they are now carried on under an integrated agricultural regime. "
