La Sorgente farmhouse is located in the countryside of Nepi, along the ancient “Via Francigena”, and in proximity of the famous Nepi’s source of mineral Water (Acqua di Nepi).
This is an historical area and an environmental prestigious location, far about 40Km from Rome and 3km from the centre of the town.
The Farmhouse , surrounded by 8 hectares of fields and woods, with its “only organic food policy” has a genuine and at the same time researched Cuisine.
The ranch offers the opportunity to live a unique experience in an ancient Farm of the ‘700, restored with care in order to keep the original atmosphere. The Farm is a place to enjoy your time with your family and friends, surrounded by the countryside and the animals, tasting genuine food and good wines.
We practice Certified Organic Farming , we grow berries, and seasonal veggies in our open fields. Our mission is to maintain a perfect synergy between the production and the environment. We believe that by working with the natural rhythms of the soil, plants, people and microorganisms we can grow excellent tasting food.
We believe that organic certification helps assure that we make good decisions about our farming practices. We always seek to meet and exceed not only the letter of the organic farming rules, but also the intent. As organic farmers we never use chemical fertilizers, chemical pesticides or genetically modified plants. Instead we rely on things like compost, crop rotation and cover crops to keep our land and crops healthy and productive.
All the animal that we raise, the poultry ,the pigs, the donkeys, the goats, the wild pigs, the Cinta senese’s ones, are fed only with organic food, and they live free in our garden and in the wood that surrounds the property.
The Farm organizes tons of activities for its guests: a mountain biking trip, a walking tour in the wood, along the fields, or to the Etruscan tombs and the Roman bridge.
For the younger guests we propose a petting zoo, a “cuddling area” to put them in contact with the animals. We also teach them how to cultivate the fields in a biological farming idea.
Based on people’s request, we will arrange also trekking days and excursions in Nepi’s catacombs, and to the Nepi’s museum.
