A family-run business, La Picentina has been rooted for years in the territory of Giffoni Sei Casali, in the province of Salerno, which stands out in the Monti Picentini Regional Park. The farm covers an area of 6 hectares, all covered by greenhouses. Four generations of farmers, since 1920, have been carrying on the agricultural experience in respect of tradition, although with an eye to the future and innovation.
The agricultural production of these lands, which enjoy the best pedoclimatic conditions, is luxuriant. Various PGI products are rooted in this territory, including the Nocciola Tonda di Giffoni and Mela Annurca. We are in a hilly area, located between Piana del Sele and the Salernitane Hills, protected to the north by the Campania Apennines. And it is here that our excellent food production comes to life.
