Società Agricola di Platischis

The “Società Agricola di Platischis” is located in a village called Platischis, in the Municipality of Taipana, in a valley between the Musi and the Zuffine mountain barriers, where the Natisone river rises and continues its run in Slovenia and then re-enters the mounts Mia and Matajur and continues towards the Friulian plain. The territory, sparsely populated and currently not devoted to agriculture, surrounded by tens of kilometers of woods that offer natural protection against parasites and weeds, represented an added value and a facilitation when our company started cultivating in 2012. A logical consequence was the subsequent acquisition of the organic certification (CCPB Bologna certifying body) and the use, for agricultural production, of our own company seeds, mainly.
Our processed products, organic certified too, are part of the program of small local productions (PPL), an initiative for food safety promoted by the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region, the Health Authorities and the Experimental Zooprophylactic Institute of the Venezie. From the moment we started, restoring an old abandoned apple orchard that we still care for, the curiosity and the desire to broaden our field of action led us to start other crops: beans, garlic, turnips and potatoes that, over time, have become stable.
The choice of quality production instead of quantity, of collaboration and not of competition among those who manifest their professional ability and those who are satisfied with simplicity in things and in life not following the “fashion” of the moment and those who are not afraid to work hard in order to sleep peacefully, allows the company to grow and improve constantly, giving life to an increasingly recognizable style.


The Agricultural Company of Platischis manages an agritourism accommodation in the “Ex-dairy” farm of the town, a building on three floors owned by the municipality, completely renovated; it offers hospitality to both groups and couples and / or singles. The building has a large living room on the ground floor, with an adjoining equipped room used as a kitchen use and pantry for organized groups. On the first floor there are two dormitories with bunk beds and a double room with a bathroom, for the team leaders and the group organizers; on the floor there are also two bathrooms, plenty of showers and a bathroom for the disabled. The second floor was thought for individuals, couples or families and consists of four bedrooms, each with a bathroom, and a triple / quadruple room with bathroom for the disabled on the floor. All floors are connected by a large covered external staircase and served by an elevator, dedicated exclusively to people with limited mobility. The accommodation offer is aimed, also in collaboration with other local activities, at sports and social groups, such as hiking in general, cycle tourism, orienteering, etc.

The beans have been planted here, for more than a century, as stated by testimonies. We started with a jar of beans, generously donated a few years ago by a local resident and we took up the project by the “Cooperative of the Bear Valleys”. Today we are able to grow, using our own seeds, several kilometers of rows of beans from which we obtain this peculiar local product, known as the “Giant Bean of Platischis“.

From a botanical point of view, this bean is a Phaseolus Coccineus, a relative of the more famous White of Spain, present in patches throughout the Alps and pre-Alps, including Austria and Slovenia, it is called in many ways: devil’s bean, peacock bean, pope bean. It is a sturdy plant, it tolerates well cold temperatures, if it finds enough support, it also climbs up to about 3 meters in height, it’s sown between May and June and bears fruit in a gradual way until late October / early November; between July and August it is filled with red, orange and white blooms that make it almost an ornamental plant.

The seeds are large, colored in different shades and streaks ranging from white to pink, purple, brown or gray, it is harvested in two ways: as a fresh product, in September, or as a dry product in October. It has a sweet taste, with hints of chestnut and it’s got an excellent cooking yield and resistance; with beans you can prepare many excellent dishes. Once upon a time, a puree made with boiled and mashed potatoes and beans was often prepared, enriched with melted lard, but even today, in all the Natisone Valleys, you can still taste the “bisna”: beans, brovada (fermented turnip and grape pomace) and lard. The populations of these valleys, isolated and very reserved people, owe a lot to the beans: during the cold winters, in fact, they were among the few certainties on their tables, helping to keep the area populated at least until the middle of the last century. Beans, as legumes, contain complex carbohydrates, high biological value proteins, unsaturated fats useful for controlling cholesterol, minerals and dietary fiber, rich in calcium and iron, contained in higher doses than red and white meat.

In the past and still now for the resident families, the bean is allowed to grow, according to its climbing nature, around the “raclis”, stakes made with hazel branches. The fact that beans were of a fundamental importance in the village’s culture is confirmed by the tradition that they were once used by single girls to know the name of their future husband. In fact, they would place their handkerchief on the raclis, leave it there until St. John’s Day, and recollect it before dawn: according to tradition, the first man the girl would meet on that day would become her future spouse.

The garlic we grow is a variety of red garlic, with not very large cloves and heads, it has an intense aroma, with a soft and not pungent flavor. During the beginning of summer, the plant blooms with a strange drop-shaped inflorescence which, to allow the hypogeal part to enlarge, we cut and process into the “Garlic flowers in oil

and the “Cream of primitive garlic flower”, a spreadable cream excellent with cheeses, preparation of canapés, dressing for cold pasta and many other uses that everyone’s creativity can suggest.

The garlic is then harvested in mid-July, dried, packaged and sold in bunches.

The apple types in our the orchards are Florina and Golden Delicious; especially Florina, which is present in most plants, a resistant variety that produces red apples, crunchy and particularly tasty.


The apples we harvest are mostly used for the production of juice that we offer in the 2-liter bag-in-box; furthermore, when seasonal productivity allows it, we produce sparkling cider.

The potatoes we grow are Kennebec (white) and Desireè (red) varieties.
In cooking, the Kennebec are excellent for gnocchi and mashed potatoes, while the Desireè are ideal for baking, frying and steaming.

The turnip we grow is the “red-collar” one which, when ripe, is harvested, peeled and macerated in the pomace of organic grapes, then cut into small strips and bagged. Although over the years the wild boars have often competed with us for this seasonal product, typical of Friulian cuisine, it still remains among our constant crops.
It can be used raw, grated and as salad or eaten cooked, even if the traditional recipe requires it to be cooked for a couple of hours in a pot, with oil, bay leaf and often a piece of pork (rib, snout or other pork fat cut).
A native plant known by many for its inebriating scent and its small bright white flowers, that bloom in our woods in spring / summer and from which we obtain the sweet and refreshing drink.

The syrup obtained from it is excellent for flavoring spring water in summer or to prepare Hugo, an aperitif / long drink consisting of prosecco, elderberry syrup and mint leaves.
