I Contadini means "The Farmers" They are from the Salento, deep in the south of Puglia. I Contadini utilises this optimal climate to grow wonderfully flavourful vegetables for their preserves and spreads, made with their grandparents' recipes. They grow a variety of vegetables on the open field, including peppers, eggplant, artichokes, olives, and tomatoes. The company operates all aspects of the business: growing the produce, naturally drying vegetables in the hot Italian sun, and preparing the jars for retail. These are there next level sun dried tomatoes.
