From Ancient Seeds To Slow Food Products: how the farming cooperative Eccellenze Nolane is born

April 1, 2020

The start is the custody of ancient seeds as the prerogative of a quality product that, in the Slow Food Presidium, has found its natural connotation. The result? A quality agricultural production made with cutting-edge tools that do not in any way involve the use of chemicals that can alter the taste and nutrient properties. In this way was born the farming cooperative

“Eccellenze Nolan”: from an idea of some young people of the Nola area, near Naples, who decided to invest in the lands of Campania Felix, “cradle” of the San Marzano tomato, carrying out a project that respects environment and consumer health, focusing on products that have always represented the quintessence showcase of Slow Food presidium. Among the “favorite” crops there are the Ancient Tomatoes of Naples and, above all, the Neapolitan Papaccella, an ancient vegetable of the traditional Neapolitan cuisine, a very fleshy and tasty pepper, not spicy and very digestible, ideal for pickles or pickled preserves.

But that is not all. Eccellenze Nolan, in fact, contributes to preserving seeds and vegetables at risk of extinction, products that represent a very important piece of the agricultural, working, the cultural and culinary history of our countryside. This is the case of tortilla, one of the oldest types of cabbage that developed in the Mediterranean basin. It is no coincidence that it is also called “Greek cabbage” as well as “curly torza”, it has fleshy and curly leaves, dark green in color and is very resistant to cold.

An agricultural project that looks at seasonality according to the principle that “the menu chooses the season” but also to the social, to quality tourism, always offering new development opportunities for a Campania of flavors that deserves to be saved and valued.
