Farm Today

The farm management relies on the intercropping of citrus with other fruits and has chosen, since 1990, to produce under organic farming regime (ICEA certification), in order to assure the products quality and genuineness. Since 2001 it operates in the agrituristic sector and in 2008 it was started the transformation of the farm products: liquors, citrus marmalades, jams and citrus blossom honey, also available in the on-line store.
The following are some of the citrus varieties available at San Leonardello: “femminello zagara Bianca” lemon, kumquat (Citrus fortunella obovata); Sicilian blood orange (Tarocco, Moro and Sanguinello varieties); mandarin (Citrus reticulata); mandarancio (hybrid between mandarin and orange); citron (Citrus medica); grapefruit (Citrus x paradisi). A rich vegetable garden and various fruit plants are also available in the farm.

All of the farm products are obtained under organic farming management and the same are used for the tasting sessions addressed to the guests. Also, a small animal farm, with dogs, cats, hens, rabbits, ducks and turkeys is present. The farm offers the possibility to choose and purchase freshly-harvested organic products: lemons, kumquat, vegetables, season fruits, eggs and dry fruits.
