Azienda Agricola Agrirape
Located in the territory of Leonforte (Sicily), the farm "Rape" was rented in 1955 by Angelo Manna, who bought it in 1965. Later the company was run by Giuseppe Manna, a fond producer who spends his whole day in his 20 hectare "Rape". The company name comes from the name of an ancient feud belonged to the barons Giaconia of Mistretta, with an extended area of about 400 hectares. The large "manor farm" (whose Italian name is “massoneria”) is very characteristic: it has been built with a special kind of stone, typical of the area of Mistretta.
Giuseppe Manna was one of the pioneers of peach-cultivation in Leonforte: he was a founding member of the cooperative company "Biofrutta." In 1978 he received a recognition award by the S.I.A.P.A., for his loyalty to the development of farming in the territory of Enna. In 1988 an experimental field of different peach cultivars was installed thanks to which the company acquired experience in the field of peach-cultivation (although it was not the first experience in this field). Since 2001 Giuseppe Manna has been supported by his son Angelo, who is the current owner.
