Cascina Belvedere was established in 1935, and arose from the Picco family's passion for agriculture. A love of the land and its fruit, which dates back to 1600 and which, from generation to generation, right to the present day, has handed down its principles and values.
Just like in the past, Cascina Belvedere promotes the same agricultural tradition, based on the careful exploitation of the land and on the authenticity of the products, today also guaranteed by the safety of modern technology and sophisticated quality control.
The land in question is the luxuriant territory of Bianzè, in the province of Vercelli (Piedmont), rich water and renowned worldwide for its rice cultivation. This is precisely where the delicious risottos and tasty soups of Cascina Belvedere originate, thanks to nature's generosity and skilful organic farming techniques.
Cascina Belvedere has also placed considerable attention on safeguarding the environment, and works in a zone assigned for the repopulation of local fauna, with its own fishing reserve. This daily respect for nature and the decision to use traditional farming methods goes hand in hand with the valorisation of the fields, with biological "Soil and health" certificates.
