The "Terre di Biccari" Consortium is born from the love and attachment to the land of five young friends, farmers and durum wheat producers. The common goal is to support and promote the production of high quality pasta using exclusively durum wheat from our hills. Biccari is a small village located in the heart of the Dauni Mountains, a few kilometers from Foggia, covers a very wide territory that goes from the sunny plains to the imposing Monte Cornacchia, the highest peak in Puglia. This heterogeneity of the territory and the consequent biodiversity of the microclimates creates a diversification in the typology and quality of the cultivated grains, that is a peculiarity of our pasta and that allows at the same time to have a product with high standards of gastronomic quality. In this generous and fertile land, where the ancient agricultural art and the warm rays of the sun ripen the golden ears, a precious hard wheat is born from which originates a genuine, authentic, simple pasta, completely free of glyphosate, mycotoxins and residues of agro-medicines; A royal pasta, the core of the Mediterranean diet, in which taste and health blend. Creating products of excellence by practicing sustainable agriculture and respecting the health of families and the land to which we belong: this is the challenge that animates us.
The pasta of the Consortium, "Terre di Biccari", n (FG) and pure water. The wheat processed by the Consortium is produced following our production disciplinary and supplied following the conclusion of a cultivation contract at the beginning of the crop year. We use only our high quality semolina, extracted from the heart of the grain, golden yellow color. The high protein content gives the semolina first, and then the pasta, an intense aroma and flavor that recall that of the good pasta of the past, with a high cooking strength. Our pasta is processed in an artisan way and with a slow drying. The use of bronze dies allows all shapes of pasta to have a rough surface, able to collect all the flavors and colors of the dressing and gives our pasta a superior taste and quality.
