Agr. Az. The Assanelli brothers

Our family personally follows every step of the short supply chain , raising cattle in accordance with peasant traditions and seasonality , taking care of all the phases of our short supply chain: from the cultivation of fodder, to the care of our white and black spotted steers, Belgian Blue, Angus and Wagyu.

The company is surrounded by 40 hectares of land which guarantee the production of fodder intended for the supply of the animals; the fields are partly cultivated with corn , alfalfa and ryegrass , partly maintained as stable polyphytic meadows or herbs with a variety of local essences which enrich the calves' ration with 100% natural scents and nutrients: attention to nutrition and to animal welfare is extreme.

Today, as then, each phase is followed respecting Mother Nature 's times.

Cultivation, breeding, distribution: a very short and sustainable supply chain that guarantees absolute transparency and traceability of the highest quality product which, in just a few steps, arrives from the breeder directly to your table.

All the 100% Italian cuts of meat you find in the shop come from cattle born and raised on our farm.
