Agricultural company Porrini Lino and Denis
Orto Porrini is a Mantuan farm. We cultivate the products of the earth and we produce fresh vegetables in large quantities: we prepare them for the distribution in packed heads, guaranteeing high quality and in full obedience of certified standards.
Salads, chicories, chards, cabbages: our fresh vegetables and leafy vegetables are cultivated both in the greenhouse and in the open field, with particular attention to the sustainability of the crops and the environmental impact.
We are repositories of a horticultural tradition of more than one hundred years in Castelgrimaldo di Volta Mantovana, a small fraction of the commune of the upper part of Mantua, at the foot of the morainic hills. The characteristics of the fertile soils of Mantua, in the Po valley, allow us to work with satisfaction our fields, because the earth has a sandy component and it naturally facilitates the drainage.
The proximity of Lake Garda brings good ventilation and ensures a fairly mild climate: these climatic conditions allow us to grow our products throughout the year, at different times, following the seasonality.
In addition to the support of natural factors, the evolution of increasingly refined farming techniques has enabled us to achieve the best results in terms of quality, precocity and continuity of agricultural yields, making our fresh vegetables a certainty for large-scale retail trade. We cultivate for our customers the best varieties of leafy vegetables, cabbages, beets and chicories, making fresh, genuine products with adequate crunchiness and excellent storability.
We have followed the rapid evolution of the market and the commercialization techniques of horticulture products, also maintaining the traditional and authentic character that distinguishes this type of agricultural production, that is present in the territory of Mantua for centuries.
Our products are marketed by the Cooperative Company OP Guidizzolo available to agree and plan personalized programs of annual delivery.

We use them only when it is necessary and always following the evaluations of agronomist-technicians.
