Agriturismo Perla is an Agricultural Company located in the territory of Alto Astigiano, precisely in Località Pogliano in Moncucco Torinese.
Moncucco Torinese, known as “door of Monferrato”, is a country rich in history, an agricultural center located on the border between the Basso Monferrato Astigiano and the hill of Turin.
The area was inhabited since ancient times (traces of prehistoric and Roman settlements have been found), but it is with the Middle Ages that Moncucco Torinese was born and developed.
Agriturismo Perla was born in 2001 in Pogliano, a locality of Moncucco Torinese. In a short time, thanks to Alberto’s agricultural experience and to Franca’s passion for cooking, the farmhouse will soon become known for the genuineness of his dishes, exclusively with the word of mouth of its customers.
Mrs. Franca starts to offer local Piedmontese dishes, especially the products grown by her husband Alberto and his two sons on their land.
Today, the company directly provides products of their production, from the meat of farm animals such as chicken, rabbit, guinea fowl, as well as seasonal vegetables and fruits.
Among the meat, all of certified origin, the veal and the much sought after wild boar meat find ample space.
Moreover the used corn flour is ground by the stone mill, an expression of a centenarian tradition.
