THE STATE OF KORE

 

MONTEKORE IS A DREAM THAT CAME TRUE, OF HOW A FARM IS BORN FROM A SMALL PATCH OF LAND AND OF HOW YOU GET TO BUILD A LOVE AFFAIR WITH NATURE AND ITS RHYTHMS, SEEING IT NOT AS A TOOL TO PRODUCE WEALTH BUT RESPECTING IT AS A SOURCE OF LIFE AND BECOMING THE CUSTODIANS OF A KNOWLEDGE THAT IS THE RESULT OF CULTURAL STRATIFICATION THAT HAS TAKEN PLACE OVER THE CENTURIES

THE PRODUCTIVE HEART OF THE FARM IS ITS 8 HECTARES OF LAND ENTIRELY USED FOR THE ORGANIC CULTIVATION OF OVER 100 SPECIES OF CULTIVATED, MEDICINAL AND AROMATIC PLANTS, IN ADDITION TO 200 TREES, SHRUB AND HERBACEOUS SPECIES THAT SPONTANEOUSLY GREW AND FOR WHICH WE DEDICATE A CAREFUL PATH OF PROTECTION

HERE BIODIVERSITY IS AT HOME

LOCATED IN CANNOLE, IN THE PROVINCE OF LECCE, SOUTHERN ITALY, IT WAS BORN IN 2016 FROM THE PASSION OF THE OWNERS WHO, ON A TRIP TO SALENTO, FELL IN LOVE WITH A PLACE BURNT BY THE SUN, CROSSED BY FIRE, RAPED BY MAN AND THEY MADE IT THEIR LIFE MISSION.

CARLOTTA, ONE OF THE THREE SISTERS, TOGETHER WITH FRANCESCO, STUDIES, LEARNS, APPLIES HERSELF, KNOWS SALENTO PEOPLE AND CULTURE, APPRECIATES THEIR VIRTUES AND UNDERSTOOD THAT THAT ABANDONED PLACE COULD BE REBORN AND BECOME AN AMBASSADOR OF A TERRITORY THAT ADOPTED HER AS A DAUGHTER.

THEY COMPLY WITH BIOS SRL PROTOCOLS (AN ORGANIC CERTIFICATION INSTITUTE) FOR ORGANIC CULTIVATION IN COMPLIANCE WITH ITALIAN REGULATION 834/2007, SUBJECTING THE ENTIRE AGRICULTURAL CHAIN TO RIGOROUS SELECTION AND CONTROLS.

THEY RESEARCH AND CULTIVATE LOCAL CULTIVARS OF VEGETABLES NOW RELEGATED TO CORNERS OF VEGETABLE GARDENS THAT NO LONGER ADAPT TO THE STANDARDIZATION OF PRODUCTIONS, BUT WHICH INSTEAD ARE SONS OF A TERRITORY.

THEY RECONSTITUTE AND RECOVER OLIVE TREES IMMERSED IN THE MEDITERRANEAN SCRUB STILL GREEN AND VIGOROUS, PLANTING TYPICAL LOCAL ESSENCES AND DOING THEIR UTMOST TO CONSTANTLY RESTORE AND PRESERVE ALL THE ESSENCES PRESENT IN THE WILDEST AREA OF THE PROPERTY LAND

THE CROPS ARE FREE FROM THE USE OF SYNTHETIC CHEMICALS (FERTILIZERS, HERBICIDES, FUNGICIDES, INSECTICIDES, PESTICIDES IN GENERAL), AND GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS (GMOS)

THE ATTENTION IN APPLYING A RIGOROUS QUALITY PROTOCOL BEGINS WITH THE PROPAGATION MATERIAL, COMPLETELY SELF-REPRODUCED BY SEED OR PLANT PARTS AND THEN CONTINUES WITH - CROP ROTATION, WHICH HINDERS THE PROLIFERATION OF PARASITES AND AVOIDS SOIL IMPOVERISHMENT;

 

- THE PROTECTION OF THE LOCAL SPONTANEOUS VEGETATION CONSISTING OF THE MEDITERRANEAN SCRUB THAT HOSTS NATURAL PREDATORS PARASITES AND CONSTITUTES THE PHYSICAL BARRIER AGAINST ANY EXTERNAL POLLUTION

 

- THE SIMULTANEOUS CULTIVATION OF DIFFERENT PLANTS IN THE AREA CREATES AN EFFECTIVE BALANCE AGAINST PARASITES BY REMOVING THEM FROM EACH OTHER WITH NATURAL REPELLENCE

 

- NATURAL FERTILIZERS SUCH AS COMPOSTED ORGANIC SUBSTANCES AND SPECIALLY SOWN PLANTS, SUCH AS CLOVER OR MUSTARD

THE MONTEKORE  PROCESS DOES NOT STOP THERE: THEY CREATED A SMALL LABORATORY WHERE THEY TRANSFORM AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS BUT ALSO EXPERIMENT WITH HERBAL PRODUCTS AND DERIVATIVES, INFUSIONS, AROMATIC SPICES, MEDICINAL HERBS, FLUID EXTRACTS, POWDERS, MOTHER TINCTURES, PLANT EXTRACTS AND PROPOLIS.

ALL THIS IS OFFERED TO THOSE WHO WANT TO IMMERSE THEMSELVES IN A CORNER OF THE WORLD THAT SEEMS TO COME OUT OF AN IMPRESSIONIST PAINTING WHERE TIME HAS STOPPED LONG AGO.
