Coop. Fattoria della Piana

Fattoria della Piana, founded in 1930, is the largest farm in the province of Reggio Calabria and one of the largest in southern Italy and is continuing to grow.


They are located on the Piana di Gioia Tauro, which overlooks the Mediterranean Sea. They are bringing a new oil supply chain up to speed, from olive groves to a modern mill used for the transformation of high quality extra virgin olive oil.

The cooperative is directly involved in the cultivation for the forage of farms, cultivation of olive groves and citrus groves destined for the production of clementines for the national market. The fertilizer they use is organic in that it returns to the soil all the nutrients necessary to have quality products.

They currently own many modern agricultural machines that perform every step of the cultivation process: from plowing the land, to harvesting and silage.

With over 240 hectares of land, they cultivate hay, maize and sorghum.
