The Melise Company is a farming enterprise that was set up a decade ago. It promotes organic farming in the Molise mountains. It is the first private-public partnership in the region, based on a well-structured financial model. It is a unique example of a collaborative approach to farming, with its aim of improving the social and economic outcome for the small community of Castel del Giudice. This innovative approach is designed to revitalize farming in the local area around the Molise Apennines, encouraging the highest quality production of organic and nutritional food and the best environmental practices and local traditions. Thanks to the work of a number of local land owners whose farms had been abandoned for years, it was possible to create 40 hectares of organic orchards producing high quality fruit.
