SEASON PRODUCTS IN SAN VALENTINO IN TORIO

FOLLOWING THE PERIODICITY OF THE CULTIVATIONS IS HEALTHY AND RESPECTS THE ENVIRONMENT

Deciding to eat season fruit and vegetables is a healthy and equilibrated choice that allows to nourish oneself accurately, respecting the nature. The actual cultivation techniques allow today to find on the market different kinds of early fruit and vegetables all year long, but they also give the possibility to choose and buy the vegetables in the moment when they naturally fully grow, this one is the healthier and cheapest choice. The cultivation of season vegetables in the province of Salerno, in San Valentino Torio is the feather in the Azienda Agricola San Valentino’s cap.

Here are five reasons why you should choose season vegetables:


No pesticides: the out of season cultivated products require a bigger quantity of chemical products that should destroy various parasites. The vegetables are obliged to grow in an “abnormal” period so they are weakened and become easy preys of the insects. Choosing a season product allows to put on the table “cleaner” fruit and vegetables.


Costs reduction: clearly the season vegetables don’t need to be cultivated in a forced way and they take advantage of the solar energy for the ripening. This is a great saving. If we choose to eat the season vegetables, we help the farmers who decide to dedicate to the cultivation of the season vegetables in the province of Salerno and respect the natural cycles to guarantee high quality and always fresh products.


More health: the vegetables that follow the normal life cycle are richer in active ingredients and nutritive substances, giving the right calorie quantity, respecting the period of the year. And then there is a great variety! Each month has its products and it is beautiful if we can change.


More goodness: the taste too is affected by this fact. The season products are more tasteful and more aromatic, perfect to taste even in a natural way, without any condiment to flavour the dishes. A healthy way to consume the vegetables with taste, in the respect of the earth.


Respect for the nature: choosing the season products means that you have respect for the earth. The early out of season vegetables have a very high production cost and need plants with a big environmental impact. We should learn to choose the Italian products , selected with care, that arrive to our tables in the months of their natural cultivation, respecting the environment and assuring a cleaned, coherent and full of taste choice to our family.
