The Pianura Padana lies between Milan and Turin and is an important centre of agriculture and Italy’s premier rice-growing region. San Genuario in the Pianura Padana Vercellese, where water is abundant, has been a perfect ground to hand down the respect for the earth and the art of rice cultivation from generation to generation. It is in 1925 that the Picco family moved to BianzË, to cultivate rice in the Cascina Torrone.
More than a century of experience and passion for rice growing is in every bag of Carnaroli Rice produced by the Picco family of Cascina Belvedere. They farm organically and control every aspect of production, assuring quality and taste in every grain.
Cascina Belvedere uses solar and geothermal energy in its operations and has repopulated the environment with local fauna.
