ISIDE s.r.l. was founded in August 2013 thanks to the passion of Simone for plants and that one of Mariagrazia for officinal herbs. The company name is meant to be a tribute to Isis, who belongs to the group of great Mother Goddesses as the goddess of fertility teaching agriculture to women in ancient Egypt.
Our fields are our grandparents’ fields, that have been abandoned for many years and we have decided to give them back "life" in order to link our past to our future.
Our present is the following: 30 hectares of land in the municipalities of Pietradefusi (Avellino) and San Giorgio del Sannio (Benevento). Currently 10 hectares of them are dedicated to aromatic / officinal herbs and the remaining part to traditional crops (with particular attention paid to ancient cereal grains), olive trees, a small vineyard, vegetables, several fruit trees and woodlands.
“For us countryside is the calm after a storm, nature that wakes up in the morning with the fresh air that pinches your face while looking at the horizon. It is the place where time stops and space widens.”
“For me countryside is the paradise on earth, devotion, sacrifice and satisfaction, meditation place, full of energy and magic, a powerful emotional catalyst .”
