Sovicille (Tuscany)

Sovicille is a small town, located a few kilometers from Siena. Its territory is made up of a hilly landscape almost bare of vegetation, with rolling slopes and gentle valley-like dips. Erosion is the dominant element of the landscape, often leaving the clay-colored substrate layer bare. These bare spots are famously known as Sienese Clay.
The farm that grows for MAIA, located 220 m above sea level, covers nearly 100 acres completely. They grow cereals, legumes, and fodder. Near the farm, there is also a small olive grove. The farm’s specialties are oats and lentils, which thrive in the clay soils that characterize this area.
