ECOLOGICAL OASIS AND FARM
The farm, located centrally on the estate, has grown to be increasingly self-sufficient and sustainable.
The farm was created with the intention of cultivating ancient domesticated breeds, considered of great importance by the FAO.
Our emphasis on a farm-to-table philosophy is intended to contribute to a greater awareness of the importance of biodiversity- the ecological relationships between varietals of living species locally.
Our goal is to encourage knowledge of domestic species and their native habitat here in Tuscany, as well as educate the respect for our beautiful natural world.
Our animal family continues to grow, as we welcome chickens, ducks, swans and peacocks for a chance to coexist and walk together in nature outdoors, monitored by our expert staff.
Our passion for greenery and all things living expands to all corners of nature, including the protection of animals and their healthy biological contribution to the surrounding environment.
This beautiful creation unified several species of organisms with the biological intent to create a safeguard of wellbeing that Tenuta Torciano strongly supports with love and dedication.
HORSES, DUCKS, PEACOCK AND SWANS
Do not miss this opportunity to immerse yourself in our vineyards surrounded by the rolling Tuscan hills and vineyards that tell stories of pleasant summers and intense autumns. Just think how relaxing a glass of good red wine, such as a Brunello di Montalcino, will be as you become intoxicated by the smell of the fresh air or the joyful atmosphere in our Estate garden. Come and find out!
Deep in our forestry is born a biological oasis built in order to protect species that is otherwise facing extinction: here you will also find new arrivals featuring the fascinating azure peacocks, beautiful and romantic swans, sweet padovane hens, colorful mandarin ducks and even a majestic, real pheasant!
With this small green paradise, you will rediscover the fascination of the ornithological world in its preciousness!
The terminology for “pet therapy” is generally synonymous with “sweet therapy” or monitored interactions between man and animal, with the objectives to improve all around physical, cognitive, psychosocial, psychological and emotional behavior.
In fact, at Tenuta Torciano we consider humans and animals to be one family. Often our friendly duck Camillo will come to welcome you at the entrance to our estate. Or, the faithful Dante, our noble basset hound, will offer you his “pawny” compliments and request from you a belly rub. Meanwhile, during the tour of our estate, interact with our graceful steeds from behind a safety fence as our horse tender explains how to socialize with these immense beings. Finally, our hens are constantly laying hot eggs that will make our in-house pasta even more healthy and delicious.
It is the luck of our estate to be located alongside the beautiful river Elsa, wetting the land as a significant contribution to our green oasis and keeping the natural surroundings healthy and vibrant. Thanks to the river, its vitality offers the best place to host friends and also keep up with the welfare of the plants. In short, if you are in search of a unique experience that is healthy, relaxing and enjoyable, we look forward to seeing you here soon at Tenuta Torciano!
