The turnip greens and broccoli patè of the AlterEco social cooperative is made from turnip greens and broccoli grown on the Terra Aut confiscated land.
Turnip greens and broccoli patè is a traditional Cerignola food product made using the old grandmother's method, i.e. turnip greens and broccoli boiled and then pan-fried with oil, garlic, onion and chilli pepper. This is a popular product that should be eaten with bruschetta as an appetiser.
Since 2008, the Altereco Social Cooperative has been working on the confiscated land of Terra Aut they not only grow vegetables, table grapes, pomegranates, cherries, lemons and olives for oil but also dreams and prospects for a dignified life.
The cooperative welcomes about 20 people a year from the penal area, from drug addiction and migrants from situations of great fragility with reintegration paths into the world of work, based on respect for people, whatever their origin.
Against all forms of oppression and malfeasance there are jams, pates, pickles, olive oil, tomato sauce. Terra Aut is not just a farm, it is a place of social redemption destination for educational projects and school visits, because letting people know that an alternative to the mafia exists is a duty.
