Gattinera Farm was born 1st Genuary 2002 from the ten-year
experience of Cascina Gattinara in herb’s cultivation with the Organic
Farming System and Biodynamic System.
In those years basically importance have been a huge work
of research and developement on chamomile’s mechanization: from
hydro-sowing system to the harwest, from dried
processing to the still under vacum.
Gattinera Farm grows and process only medicinals herbs from certificate organic
farming. The philosophy that farm believes is to process only herbs directly
grown. By this way, working in an extremly complex system such as are
agri-ecosystems, and with vegetable matrix who has a changeble content of active substances , is possible to achieve control
and standardisation of final products characteristics. When we produce an
herb-extract we do not just tell You that the ratio is 1:2, 1:1, and go on
talking by this way, but we determinate the anlythical titre (in HPLC or
gas-cromatography) of his actives components characteristics of the
The choice to cultivate herbs wich also have healing value, without synthetic
molecules, is for us the best ethical choice.
accurate quality control on raw matters, production process, equipment and
technology, allow us to obtain prepared or hal-prepared products with an high
quality standard. The quality of our products is not express by words or
slogan, but is expressed by numbers!
Gattinera Farm is particularly sensitive to
the environmental protection, in all the phases of the manufacturing process.
Gattinera Farm uses electrical energy, coming
exclusively from renewable and clean sources. This allows us to contribute
concretely to decrease CO2 emissions (greenhouse gases) and to reduce the use
of oil. As regards the production of the necessary vapour for the
manufacturing activity (drying process, distillation, concentration), Gattinara Farm has started to build a central
biomass facility (buckwheat bran).
way Gattinera Farm has recently selected few
manifacturing, with important characteristics, as: APIGENMILLE and RUTINBUCK.
On these premises we are looking forward to fully satisfy the needs of our
qualified and demanding clients.
To produce and use a phytoextract without
knowing the analitycal make-up
is like producing and driving a car without knowing its cubic capacity!
It is the phytochemical structure / make up which makes a difference to an
appearance phytoextract, a potentially dangerous and a functional one.
