Sequerciani organic and biodynamic products

We bring the produce from our land to the table, just as nature offers it to us

In 1992, Ruedi Gerber bought the Sequerciani estate: eight hectares of abandoned land, that he decided to enhance, using the soil biodynamically.

Many things have changed since 1992: new land bordered by woodland has been purchased, the large areas close to the main house have been turned into vineyards, and new crops have been introduced.  

The vegetable garden that provides the vegetables for the agritourism business and for the “Il Barrino di Tatti” restaurant, fruit trees, 1500 olive trees, all grown following biodynamic principles. 

Microclimate areas have been created to strengthen the crops, with green manure mixes used as a natural fertiliser. If covered and well rooted, the land is restored and the risk of erosion decreases. Also, flourishing green manure encourages the proliferation of insects, including the Sequerciani bees.

We have also started up production of IGP Toscana extra virgin oil oil, ancient wheat from which we make pasta and flour, and millefiori honey. All are products bear Demeter biodynamic certification.

Oil

When harvested early, olives have a peppery taste, and given the high polyphenol and antioxidant content, are also slightly bitter. The result is a superior quality extra virgin olive oil that contains healthy substances and a lower than average acid content.

Wheat

At Sequerciani, we grow so-called "Ancient Wheat” (in Italian “Grani Antichi”): Antico means produced without any genetic modification, unlike other modern varieties of wheat that are produced in intensive farming. This allows us to grow wheat without the use of pesticides or fungicides and consequently produce pasta and flour that are healthier, with lower levels of gluten.

Honey

The organic honey that we produce at Sequerciani is a multifloral honey: the main and most common variety of this delicious, healthy foodstuff. A honey with a sweet, delicate taste, clear colour and fluid consistency, although as it is our handmade production, the colour and consistency can vary according to the calendar of flowers blooming, and the seasonal and climate trends.
