About the maker

La Ginestra farm was born in 1978 from an expropriation of abandoned land. It's now a thriving commune with grains, cereals, pigs and a vineyard.

At the commune, the people started by seeding cereals, legumes. Following that it turned into beekeeping and planting vines. Year after year new people would arrive and provide expertise in one area or antother. Right now the commune is mainly young people supported by two 'experts'. Their motto is 'We live in our land, we love it, we share it, we take care of it.
