Farm Il Cocco

Organic farm since 2000

Since 1700 the farm Il Cocco has been part of the property of the Bindi family who initially entrusted the management of the lands to sharecropping. The current property was left in 1955 to grandfather Giovanni who dedicated himself to the reforestation of the fields, the cultivation of vineyards for family use, and in 1972 to the opening of the farm as an agriturismo (agritourism), one of the first in the province (license n.2 had been granted). Today the company is directed by Giacomo, who since 2000 has dedicated himself to the production of wines with exclusively organic methods and sustainable hospitality In addition to offering genuine hospitality the main objective is to cultivate the farm’s land respecting nature using principles of organic and biodynamic farming.

The Coconut (Il Cocco)

A military outpost from the 1400s

The farm Il Cocco, owes its name to the commander "Ser Cocco Salimbeni" who lived in the Rocca of Castiglione d'Orcia in 1400. He and his militias controlled the Via Francigena of which the Podere Il Cocco was the military outpost on the southern slope of the Orcia Valley.

Podere "Il Cocco" rose to prominence due to its strategic location: being visible from the Rocca di Castiglione and at the same time having a view of the Mediterranean Sea.

The farm

We value biodiversity

The farm’s objectives seek and pursue the balance of the ecosystem by combining ancient peasant traditions (treatments with low doses of copper and sulfur, natural fertilizers) with innovative techniques (the use of effective and invigorating natural microorganisms such as zeolite, kaolin, wood vinegar, propolis etc.) Experience has shown us to establish ourselves as regenerative natural agriculture.
