Where it all begins

The owner of the Teresina farm is Paolo Chiusano, a graduate in Viticulture and Oenology from the University of Alba and Turin.

In parallel with the work related to his studies, he started the hazelnut production business with the aim of transforming and selling the finished product. The company's lands extend partly into the areas surrounding the farmhouse and partly within the special nature reserve of the Andona Valley, Valle Botto and Val Grande, for a total area of 24 hectares of which 18 hectares are hazelnut groves.

The oldest hazelnut groves, planted by grandfather Vittorio and grandmother Teresina, date back to about thirty years ago; in addition to taking care of these, from 2006 to today, his nephew Paolo has continued and increased the business by planting new hazelnut groves and acquiring others.

The work phases in the hazelnut grove can be divided according to the seasons: in the autumn-winter period the soil is fertilized with organic fertilizers and the plant is pruned; in spring-summer, more ground shredding, suckling and phytosanitary treatments are carried out; in the months of August and September, the mechanical harvesting of the hazelnuts is carried out, followed by natural drying or drying according to the weather conditions; finally, the hazelnuts are stored in crates ready for the subsequent processing phases in the laboratory.

The machinery in the laboratory allows the hazelnuts to be processed from harvesting to the finished and packaged product. After being harvested, the hazelnuts are in fact cleaned, calibrated with the shell, shelled, calibrated from shelled, toasted, selected via optical selector, packaged or transformed into grains, flour, pasta and cream with cocoa according to the needs
