The farm Agricola Ballestra & Lorenzi
Our production starts from the smallest part of the plant, the seed. In June, the sowing is done by hand and the first seedlings are expected to grow, which when they reach the right size will be repotted in pots 5.5 ready for sale.
We mainly deal with pot 5,5 but of some varieties we also make pots 6,5 8,5 and 10,5 especially of haworthie, euphorbias and aloe. The company today boasts an area of about 40,000 m² in continuous expansion, with a selection of about 200 varieties of cacti and succulents, and an annual production of about 3,000,000 plants.
In recent years, the company is making investments in new technologies to reduce environmental impact and improve production, through automatic irrigation systems, which reduce the waste of water and high-tech machinery. The company also pays attention to the environment with photovoltaic systems for the production of clean energy. We always work hard to provide the highest quality to our customers.
