Tradition and innovation

Our farm

40 years in Umbria

In this fantastic area we have brought innovation to the cultivation of apples.


Since 1980 Pernstich family and Maffei family, native of South Tyrol, takes advantage of this burgeoning area, beginning with the cultivation of apples, an activity which in the beginning was still innovative in Umbria. Apples, which we produce with semi-integrated organic farming methods, are protected by the registered trademark “La Saporita”.

Some say that a corner of South Tyrol moved here, but it is a rich and fertile Umbria!

We are located on the south side of Trasimeno Lake, on the slopes of the scenic hills of Paciano. In this frame, since the time of the Etruscans considered of great value, in 1980, with the innovative cultivation of apples, our family has tried to supplement the already extensive range of existing agricultural products in the area.

Now, after 35 years of continuous quality research to improve our products, we have achieved many goals and we consider ourselves a solid reality.

Our shop

The historic farm shop, that we have recently renovated, is the fastest way to get in touch with our reality. So you can buy directly the products and determine for yourself the quality of what you want to buy.
