Agriculture

Organic agriculture practiced at Spannocchia allows the use of traditional methods of farming which provides important lessons in the historical practice of agriculture in Tuscany. Spannocchia's “Noah's Ark” project raises traditional local breeds of farm animals that have become threatened with extinction in recent decades: Cinta Senese pigs, Pomarancina sheep, Calvana cows, Monterufolino ponies, and Monte Amiata donkeys.
