Antico Molino Rosso was actually among the first mills in Italy, which with courage, in addition to having made the choice to eliminate conventional products to devote only to those coming from organic farming, has created its own experimental field dedicated to ancient cereals already since 2007.
In the first 10 years of activity, 8 to 12 different varieties have been grown, analyzed and tested in the bakery laboratory every year.
Today we have a considerable cognitive background and an infinite number of data, such as to be able to boast as many significant and interesting contents for the world of baking today.The choice of the experimental field inevitably implies a close connection with the choice of Biodiversity. like Antico Molino Rosso, Biodiversity is a priority factor linked not only to the preservation of old varieties of cereals and to the awareness that we should all go back to decreasing single variety cereals to leave more space for populations of cereals, but also to a factor that has a ‘fundamental importance at the level of safeguarding the planet concerning the lower consumption of water, which these types of grasses need.
In the following years, thanks to a close collaboration with Organic Farmers, we have created the short chain Crescent (which in English means half moon) This supply chain, dedicated only to waxes li Antichi Biologi, then gave life to the seed house named Consemi, whose purpose is to safeguard the old varieties of cereals, in collaboration with the Agricultural Institute of Verona Stefani Bentegodi, and which as its goal is to involve students of the latter in the following activities: getting in touch with Antiqued Cereals Studying them and selecting their properties involving students in the ITS school-work project
