Farmers for passion
In 1887 a young Napoleone Stoppato, at the age of twenty, was able to build up a modern and innovative activity, changing three generations of a farming family’s ways.
Desire for modernity
Napoleone established himself in a very short time thanks to his entrepreneurial spirit and modernity. Very soon he was able to harvest much more than before and invest in new fields.
First rice paddies
Napoleone is one of the first members of the “Cooperative-Factory” of fertilizers. He was a pioneer in the use of organic fertilizers. In these early years he established the first rice paddies.
After the Second World War, the rebuilding age begins. The first tractor was acquired - a petrol powered International. Irrigation systems were implemented.
Cultivation of sugarbeets
In the 50’s we started cultivating sugar-beets and in a short time we become one of the biggest growings of sugar beets, reaching 2500 hectares/year. In these years Vanni Stoppato takes over the company.
We buy the first harvester with satellite mapping. We focus on cereal cultivation.
First cultivation of Edamame soy.
This year we started the first quinoa cultivation test in our fields. The initial harvest began within 2 years.
We inaugurate our new plant, divided in 2 parts: A temperature-controlled warehouse and a new production area. At this time, we also started with cultivation tests of two new legume varieties: Atzuki e Mung.
We are in the sixth generation. The factory is certified as IFS (International Food Standard), a recognized worldwide qualification. By 2019 the area dedicated to the production of chips will be expanded.
