In the rural environment, together with the agricultural
a semi natural ecosystem has developed, where cultivation and animal
breeding go hand in hand with the flora and fauna which surround them.

and the abandonment of the countryside have overturned this balance,
making all production and flavours, for the most part, uniform.
Notwithstanding this, in certain areas of our Region, it is still
possible to find particular products, untiringly cultivated or produced
respectful of the environment and the well being of man who, with
their work, contribute to the preservation of the biological diversity

In this special section, Terraditoscana publishes a complete section
of typical Toscani products, some unfortunately already at risk.
