Our productions


Our main production is the Tonda Gentile del Piemonte IGP hazelnut. Typical Piedmontese crop famous worldwide for its fine organoleptic characteristics. In addition, with the practices we adopt, the hazel grove also has the effect of preserving biodiversity! In fact, the crown of the hazel tree provides an ideal habitat for butterflies, bees and many other arthropods. In addition, the hazel tree, can provide shelter for some species of birds and small mammals.


Bamboo is an evergreen, very hardy plant with great adaptability. The shoots of these plants are edible, and the stems are used as building materials for housing, the manufacture of furniture and furnishings. It also has innumerable environmental benefits due to its ability to capture carbon dioxide. Just think that giant bamboo, compared to a traditional forest, absorbs about 5 times the amount of CO2 and releases about 35 percent more oxygen. This allows us to purify the air we breathe with enormous benefits to the planet, health and quality of life!


The cherry, in particular, is the most common fresh fruit in our hillside. These are native cherries from large plants raised in tall pots and in a semi-promiscuous manner, without irrigation or hail nets. The result is a product of yesteryear, which the intensive cultivation of recent years has now erased.

How we work

PininAgri aims to adopt forward-looking practices aimed at obtaining quality products with the utmost respect for the environment and ecosystems of the Moncalieri hillside.

  1. In crop protection. Conservative biological control is applied on the farm, absolutely avoiding the use of broad-spectrum products with the aim of keeping the useful arthropodofauna alive. Biological control is a forward-looking method that, when properly applied on the basis of extensive and thorough knowledge of the agrosystem, ecological and life-cycle and biological principles of auxiliary and target organisms, can achieve desirable long-term results.
  2. In fertilization. As history has taught us, there is no denying the importance of good practices in soil management to maintain long-term productivity in a sustainable way. Organic fertilization and conservation/implementation of beneficial soil microorganisms are the main practices we rely on to enrich our precious soil.

Together, these practices allow us to preserve the agroecosystem, which in turn allows us to maximize the inherent potential of our crops in terms of resistance, yield, taste and nutraceutical qualities.


Organic Farming

I Organic farming is a method of cultivation and farm management that aims to use natural resources responsibly, preserve biodiversity and ecological balances, and improve soil fertility.

For us, organic represents our way of working and looking at the world, if we mean organic in the true sense of the word, there is nothing that has the potential to make the future of agriculture as economically and environmentally sustainable as organic. Because what is biological can acclimate, reproduce and stabilize in balance giving outstanding results without the need for additional and unsustainable inputs.

PininAgri is currently in conversion to organic. Our membership journey began in 2022, when we notified our Region and our Certification Body of our intention to convert our farm to Organic. Our soils have always been cultivated without the use of herbicides and synthetic insecticides. All operations are aimed at obtaining a quality product while respecting the useful arthropodofauna and microorganisms in the soil by avoiding the use of broad-spectrum pesticides.


IGP Piedmont Hazelnut

he term Protected Geographical Indication (PGI), represents a mark awarded by the European Union to agricultural products for which a specific quality, reputation or other characteristic is dependent on geographical origin, and whose production, processing and/or elaboration takes place in a specified geographical area.

Our farm produces the IGP Tonda Gentile del Piemonte Hazelnut, loved all over the world so much so that it is considered the world “queen” of hazelnuts thanks to its “special and valuable quality characteristics,” as the legal text of the Protected Geographical Indication mentions. This certification makes us very proud and reflects our philosophy and way of loving the land and the nature around it.


Symbiotic Agriculture

This is a new certification that we particularly care about, and we will explain why: in the future we will be faced with the need to produce more food (due to an increasing world population) with less phosphorus (due to the depletion of the world’s phosphorus reserves). But there is a solution: optimize phosphorus uptake with mycorrhizae. Mycorrhiza refers to the symbiosis between roots and a microscopic fungus. This allows the plant to absorb 90 percent of the phosphorus and not take advantage of small amounts. Fostering the development and preserving microbial consortia allows ,moreover, to give exceptional results, making the crops’ intrinsic potential in terms of resistance, yield, taste and nutraceutical qualities expressed to the fullest. Symbiotic Agriculture is in fact a Certified agribusiness production system that seeks to unite the microbial biota of the soil with our second brain, the gut.

Organic Farming

PininAgri is a company in conversion to organic farming, to obtain quality products while fully respecting the ecosystem.

IGP Piedmont Hazelnut

PininAgri grows the Tonda Gentile del Piemonte IGP Hazelnut, known worldwide for its fine quality characteristics.

Symbiotic Agriculture

PininAgri applies the principles of Symbiotic Agriculture, aimed at regenerating and maintaining those fungal symbioses called Mycorrhizae and the rest of the Microbial Biota that, with intensive agriculture, have been disappearing.
