The GANDOLFO FILIPPONE farm business is based at 1,000 metres of altitude, in the wild setting of the Madonie Park in the heart of Sicily. The high mountain climate, clean air, and the quality of the land and water make this area the perfect place for cultivating the products that are the symbol of the agricultural excellence in Sicily. In the Filippone family, the passion for agriculture has been handed down from father to son, creating a business that at first mainly produced cereals, fodder and grain legumes. For a few years now, however, it has been innovating and expanding its production with the rediscovery of the most distinctive Mediterranean herbs such as bay leaves, sage, rosemary, thyme, fennel, lavender and oregano in particular. Oregano still grows wild on the Madonia mountains and contains the essence of the most authentic Sicily in its intense aroma. It is as authentic as the company that grows it, that every day reaffirms the value of environmentally-friendly farming methods in harmony with the roots of true rural tradition. For this reason, our products are certified as organic and are protected by the panierenatura mark of quality of the Madonie Park.
