I Contadini means “The Farmers” and that is exactly what this new, young company is comprised of. They are from the Salento, deep in the south of Puglia, and their tomatoes are cultivated by them, hand picked, and within 24 hours are puree’d and canned. Taste all the freshness of a tomato grown in southern Italy with La Rustica Passata Tomatoes.
