Back in 2007 we started our project for the recovery of traditional saffron farming, from the tillage and fertilization of the soil, to the cleaning and selection of the saffron bulbs, and the cultivation process in full.

The optimal nature and sheer richness of the soil in our area impelled us to get on with it and bring back the tradition. We began by interviewing the elders of our town, who were familiar with the labours we wanted to know and feel ours as a life tradition. Since then we have recovered the traditions of planting, harvesting, peeling and toasting as they were practised in the old times, and our learning of this beautiful and valued spice has filled us with joy.
