A bit of history
Cascina Canta is a family-run farm that combines the cultivation, the transformation, and the sale of its products: not only rice but also pasta, flour, and cereals.
It was founded in the 1960s by Eusebio Francese and his wife Bianca. Since 1976 they have left thrust monoculture, introducing a rotation program that supports rice cultivation with that of other cereals and legumes of particular prestige and ancient tradition.
They choose to use low-impact production, where production takes place using renewable energies and cereal drying is done gently at low temperatures. Very important is also the preservation and production of ancient varieties of rice such as rice Maratelli, Balilla, and Red Sant’Eusebio.
