IMPORTANT: do not turn during cooking.
Mulino Val d’Orcia was born about 30 years ago from an intuitive idea of Luchino, who decided to buy the mill and a small kneading machine.
Their success stems from the fact that before being pasta makers, they are farmers.
Mulino Val d’Orcia produces high quality organic pasta in the municipality of Pienza, in the heart of the Val d’Orcia, a UNESCO world heritage site for the beauty of its landscape and the balance between nature and human activities.
The farm, managed by the family for generations, extends over 100 hectares, 85 of which are arable land where cereals such as durum wheat, soft wheat, spelt, oats and barley are grown in rotation with grain legumes such as chickpeas, lentils and beans.
Their history is rooted in the sharecropping tradition and the passion and love for the land has been handed down from father to son for generations. In fact, the mill is now located in the building that once housed the farm tool shed of the sharecropper grandparents, renovated according to the traditions of the Sienese countryside.
