My name is Mauro and I'm the owner of the small farm called Erbe di Mauro. Fascinated by the many beneficial and healing properties of these plants and after having experienced their benefits for a long time, today, with the help of my family, I cultivate with passion plants of Aloe Arborescens, Aloe Vera, as well as many other aromatic and medicinal plants. I have a simple philosophy for my work: providing high quality raw materials and using exclusively artisan processes to make my products. These principles seem quite simple, yet they represent the guarantee to get the maximum result out of my plants and my products.
For years, together with the help of my father and the whole family, we have been redeveloping our land located in San Girolamo (fraction of Fermo city, Italy), in the open countryside, far from any form of pollution, such as highways, expressways, factories, dumps, incinerators, etc. The land originally belonged to my grandfather, then it passed to my uncle and now to my father. Since a few years, we have created a farm where the plants enjoy the naturalness of the countryside and the simplicity of natural cultivation techniques.
Given that these plants are intended to produce “food”, often used in a normal diet for the well-being, we do not use any form of chemical treatments. Our land has been passed down from generation to generation, hence we are perfectly familiar with the land and water that we use and that surround us. Besides, our company is totally devoid of agricultural licenses for the use of pesticides and heavy agricultural vehicles, such as tractors. Our work consists only of willpower, arms and brain. The agricultural philosophy that we follow is a biodynamic agriculture, where nature and the natural regeneration of the land are in perfect equilibrium, being the foundation of an excellent cultivation.
Our farm cultivates plants with medicinal and aromatic properties, intended for food use, for psycho-physical wellbeing, as well as to make cosmetic products, such as lotions, shower gel, shampoo, etc.
Our "core business" is Aloe. Besides cultivating and selling Aloe Arborescens and Aloe Vera plants, we are among the few in Italy to make fresh juices, without preservatives, without pasteurization and without excipients. I would like to stress that it is an absolutely fresh product, made with our plants, handmade and shipped on the same day, not stored in a whatsoever warehouse.
The most requested product, which is the one that encouraged us to start this business, is the famous recipe of Father Romano Zago, made with Aloe Arborescens, honey and grappa (traditional Italian spirit). We strictly follow the original formula of Father Zago and his instructions to make it: 350g of Aloe Arborescens, 500g of organic honey and 3 tablespoons of grappa, leaves harvested before dawn and worked in the absence of light, only from plants more than 5 years old, biologically grown under the sun and that have not been irrigated for at least 7 days. Additionally, we also make other variants of the recipe (without alcohol, with little honey, without honey, pure, without aloin, etc.).
Besides Aloe, we also grow and sell other plants with medicinal properties, such as mallow, rosemary, thyme, calendula, stevia rebaudiana, turmeric, artemisia annua, kalanchoe, etc.
The best way to obtain a product of excellence, is to shorten the supply chain, that means to have a direct sale (from the producer to the consumer) without making the classic commercial steps (manufacturer, seller, wholesaler, trader, customer). Since these products are often fresh, see Father Romano Zago's recipe, we offer a direct sale, and what differentiates us from most companies that offer similar products is our short supply chain, from our land, to your table:
We grow plants in our land
We collect the leaves in the evening
We make the product
Now the product arrives to your home!
Someone grows the plants
Someone collects leaves
The leaves should be sent to the producer who receives them after days
The manufacturer makes the product
The product must be sent to the wholesaler for distribution
The product is distributed to the shopkeeper
now you buy the product
Following are some good reasons why I think you should choose my products:
