The Farm

Discrover our many activities

Our Farm

The Resort La Casa sul Poggio is part of a farm whose main activities are the cultivation of fruits and vegetables (following the methods and criteria of biological horticulture) and the breeding of Golden Retriever dogs. Moreover, our five cows, living in Pareto, produce every day fresh milk that we use for making the typical Santo Stefano traditional cheese, ricotta and ‘sarasso’. We also sell raw milk in a automatic dispenser in the village: every morning you can find fresh milk!
Our products (vegetables, fruits, berries) are used to prepare jellies and conserves (you can taste them at breakfast!) which can be bought or be ordered fresh for your lunch and dinner. We breed our Golden Retriever dogs inside our property, where we have built for them sheltered boxes and open air enclosures. Your dog can use an enclosure dedicated to our guest and our agility dog field. Moreover we can help you and your pet with training courses for behaviour and obedience or with counseling about his health and well-being.

Golden Retriever Breeding

You can visit the Golden Retriever Kennel website at this link.

If you come with your dog, you can try Maddalena’s lessons for behaviour and obedience: often two or three lessons of half an hour can definitely change the relation dog-owner.
