Agriculture

Agriculture is of utmost importance to the municipality of Appiano.

Several years ago, most of the inhabitants of Appiano used to earn their living in agriculture. Still today wine-growing is of utmost importance to Appiano, but also fruit-growing has become an important branch. For the considerable size of the cultivation fields, the cultural landscape is an important feature of the municipality. Its structure is clearly visible and contributes to an impressive overall picture of this place. Above all in spring, when the apple blossom is fully thriving, cycling and hiking in this area is a real experience.

However, also in autumn, the rich harvest testifies that Appiano is a blessed area regarding agriculture. In the period of vintage and apple picking, almost every inhabitant of Appiano is somehow involved in the work on the fields, together with many harvest hands. For this reason, a particular atmosphere characterises Appiano from mid September to mid November. Tension, but also relief, as the harvest period is soon over, prevail.

The particular conclusion of this period of the year is the Martini market of Cornaiano on November 11. It is by the way also one of the pay days, on which the farmers are paid for the harvest of the preceding year. However, above all the end of the intense harvest period contributes to the delightful ambience and hilarity of this day. Is it for this reason that this market is that popular? Oh, one other thing: if you might have to drive slowly on the roads of Appiano, please be patient, as tractors are vehicles of everyday life in Appiano!
