Since Expo Milano 2015 is being held in Italy and the vast majority of visitors are Italian, it made sense for New Holland to choose two farmers from Italy as “Seeds of Life Series” Heroes.
One of those is Francesco Condello, a grape grower and wine producer from Fiumana, where his Conde’ family farm is devoted to producing authentic Sangiovese di Predappio wine. “Our company estate is an example of the main theme of Expo ‘Feeding the World,'” said Francesco, through an interpreter, who is also his daughter. “Our estate is new, established in 2001, in a valley where we now have 110 hectares of vineyard and olive trees, where in 15 years a valley that was non-productive before has been transformed into a productive area.”
Francesco says he is very thankful to New Holland for the “Seeds of Life” project to put a face on producers around the world and was happy to be able to meet other farmers like himself from other countries and talk about the future of agriculture.
In this interview with Francesco he also talks about the sustainable practices he employs in his operation: New Holland Hero Francesco Condello of Italy
