Fattoria Barbialla Nuova is an organic farm with self-catering accommodation in Central Tuscany. We have created a small bakery with a wood-fired oven, supplying sourdough bread to the locals who remember the traditions of the past. More importantly we share the skills to create an artisan product in your own home.
