San Martino organic farm - Alberto's lifelong dream.

The San Martino organic farm is the realization of a lifelong dream for Alberto Dalpiaz and his family. After many years of work as an export manager for several large Italian food companies, Alberto and his wife Giulia Bartellone founded the Azienda Agricola San Martino on the hills behind Porto Maurizio (Imperia) in Liguria.

Since its foundation in 2004, Alberto, Giulia and their two sons have worked tirelessly to produce the highest quality food in the most ecological way possible. On a nearly 4 hectare San Martino Organic Farm there are three separate vegetable beds as well as a small orchard, olive groves and several beehives.San Martino Organic Farm

The organic farm “Organic Farm San Martino” also produces its own extra virgin olive oil from the Taggascia olive, a highly valued variety of olives originating in Liguria. You can adopt your trees at Organic Farming Italy.

The latest addition to the farm is a newly renovated guest house with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms overlooking the beautiful Imperia and the sea. San Martino organic farm.
