Since 2013 Terrevive has participated in Project Virgo that promotes organic cereal cultivation in the Emilia Romagna region. It is a bi-annual project sponsored by the region itself and coordinated by Prof Giovanni Dinelli of the University of Bologna
The Virgo trademark unites farmers, millers, bakers and citizens with the common objective of guaranteeing the origin and quality of the produce. Wheat is cultivated in respect of strict biodynamic principles and practices allowing the process to be in perfect harmony with the environment. Virgo is a biodiverse mix of ancient wheat grains such as Andriolo, Inallettabile , Gentil Rosso e Frassineto: a heritage to preserve
Grinding the wheat with larges stones and accurately monitoring the temperature during the various stages ensures that the resulting flour varieties ( whole, tipo 2 and tipo 1 ) mantain all their qualities intact.
