Passion, tradition, innovation
The main objective of Cascina Fontane is to continue and innovate, through increasingly modern and mechanized agronomic methods, the centuries-old tradition of hazelnut cultivation in the Alta Langa area which, with its peculiar orography, soil, and climate characteristics, is the ideal location for the development of this type of cultivation.
The latest technologies are at the service of the artisans' commitment to pay meticulous attention to the product and all its phases of development and processing. A verticalized structure that allows us to start from the “field", taking care of the product in all phases of the activity, to get to meet the needs of both the B2B market and the final consumer.
