In an era of imitators, Michele Ferrante is a true legacy farmer producing heritage products. On his farm outside Salerno in Campania, Ferrante farms heirloom and unique varietal beans, grains, peppers, and spices. Once only available locally, RITROVO® is proud to be able to bring our customers these true farm-to-table specialties. From his Controne beans that don’t need soaking, to oregano still on the branch, and hand ground hot pepper that adds depth of flavor and a subtle heat to any dish, these are products that can’t be found anywhere else in the world. It’s not only the flavor but the performance that makes regional foods like this so special.
