The Farm Baldaiassa - Production, processing and sale hazelnuts

The Baldaiassa, a young farm form Asti, deals with cultivation and sale of hazelnuts, production of hazelnut oil and Italian food specialties from Piedmont since 2009.

In the company laboratory, hazelnuts are transformed into typical Piedmontese hazelnut confectionery and bakery products, as well as being sold shelled raw and toasted.

Among the Piedmontese specialties produced by Baldaiassa the precious Hazelnut Oil and the everlasting Bagna Cauda, prepared however with the hazelnut oil, according to the ancient Piedmontese recipe.

The name Baldaiassa, conceived as a joke a few years earlier, derives from the meeting of words Baldizzone, surname of the owners, and Aiassa, the name of the farmhouse where the farm is physically located.

It's situated in the Municipality of Cortazzone, in a hilly area called Val Rilate, or in Monferrina portion known as Hills of Upper Monferrato of Asti.

The Aiassa, so nicely apostrophe, draws its origins from far away: the old municipal documents would carry it back to 1600, but it could perhaps go back to the previous periods.

In the years of the splendor of these lands, the Aiassa, was among the most productive, functional and modern agricultural realities of the area.

Our ambition, with so glorious past, of course, is to go back to make proud a land unfortunately left to itself for too long, finding the productivity and the balance of "the past" but with the help of the most modern technologies of "today": first of all those of the communication.

That communication precisely, the absence of which, did not allow a renewal of the generations, resulting in a slow decline of the territory and that its continuation will inevitably lead to the loss of the most precious asset... their identity: made of flavors, traditions and cultural practices.

This is the land that Baldaiassa aims to tell with its products!
