Cascina Barbàn is located in the Borbera valley, a valley formed by the Borbera stream, a tributary of the Scrivia, located in the province of Alessandria. It was born as a peasant project of two families, Maurizio and Martina, who left the city in 20011 to go and live in the mountains, and Pietro and María Luz. An 18th century stone village sheltered from the north winds and heavily exposed to the sun. Cascina Barbàn is a testimony of rebirth, of a village, of a territory of a seemingly distant, peasant world. A non-industrial project, which has to do more with moons and people than with machines and automatisms. Grapes, vegetables, wheat and fruit are grown naturally. Natural in the sense that synthetic chemistry is not used. Green manure, manure, copper and sulfur as well as infusions and decoctions, are the ingredients they use in the fields. They research and cultivate old varieties because they have seen more springs than the other parts, in the Apennines, they behave better, they grow healthier and more vigorous.
