Cascina Stella: Family and Territory since 1934
Cascina Stella is situated in lower Monferrato, in a hamlet called Località Poggio which is on a hill in the village of Portacomaro Stazione, near Asti. In the year 1934, brothers Giuseppe and Pietro Abbracchio purchased, thanks to the income raised through the sale of grain, the current Cascina Stella, a farm with ancient and noble origins dating back to 1764.
Along with historic family tradition, closely linked to the cultivation of the land and gastronomy, Mario Abbracchio, son of Giuseppe, developed a passion for the livestock breeding farm he inherited from his father.
Over the years Mario Abbracchio has boosted the cultivation of the 30 hectares of land adjacent to Cascina Stella in order to produce cereals and forage necessary for the breeding of Fassone Piemontese cattle.
After almost 100 years in business, Cascina Stella is still dedicated to producing corn, alfalfa, and hay in order to feed the animals appropriately and in accordance with the cycles of nature and tradition.
Today, brothers Andrea e Marco Abbracchio, along with their father Mario and mother Carla, run Cascina Stella and preserve the knowledge and values handed down from generation to generation, maintaining and evolving a genuine and traditional approach that still has strong ties with nature and the territory.
