My name is Antonia Briguglio and I’m an architect with a passion for agriculture. I belong to a Sicilian family that has been producing and selling citrus since six generations. My company covers approximately 4.8 hectares located at AlìTerme and Fiumedinisi, near Messina. Moreover, the family company owns and carries out other country estates, whose dimensions are about 1.6 hectares, located in AlìTerme and Castiglione di Sicilia near Catania, with a magical setting midway the sea, Etna Mountain and Alcantara River.
The main production is “Interdonato” Lemon variety, a Kind of cultivation exclusively produced in the coast towns , from Messina to Giardini Naxos.
The company also produces the so-called “nostrali” Lemons, “Munacheddi” lemons, vanilla oranges, Tarot oranges, Valencia oranges, clementines, grapefruits and Nova clementines.In addition, thanks to my big passion for cakes , I started the production of citrus marmalade and of the delicious “citrus sweets”, handsome biscuits made of olive oil produced by our farm, whose taste reminds lemon, orange and mandarin.
My whole production respects the natural seasonality and, therefore, quantities are limited.
My cultivations of citrus fruits grow and mature in a natural way, the fruits are not treated with ethylene, Imazalil, waxes and anything else, so that you can naturally also use their peel (to prepare liqueurs, Jams, to flavor desserts, etc….)
As my citrus fruits are not chemically treated, it is appropriate to keep them in a cold place, as home balcony during winter or in the refrigerator, to ensure they preserve their freshness and fragrance for a longer period.
