Training and Consulting

in Sustainable Agriculture

Hi There! I'm Marcello Bianchi

My name is Marcello and I am an agricultural consultant, but first of all a farmer. I have a certificate in Permaculture and I am skilled in natural agronomic techniques, in particular in the commercial production of organic vegetables and in the sustainable farm design.

I have a background in advertising graphics, marketing and communication, where I graduated in 2006. Over the years I have also worked on the business model development for startups.
My agricultural experience began in 2011 in Australia, where I moved to study and develop different agronomic techniques. I worked in both organic and conventional farms in order to compare the different agricultural models applied.

In 2012 I received my certificate as a Permaculture Designer at the Permaculture Research Institute of Australia. Later on, I had the opportunity to work on farm design alongside Geoff Lawton, Paul Taylor and Graham Brookman.

Back in Italy, in 2015, I started my own farm, Maso Zepp, an organic certified Alpine micro-farm where I produce vegetables, eggs and herbs.

Over the years, I have decided to combine my agricultural skills with my marketing experience in order to promote sustainable and profitable farming and business practices. In order to offer comprehensive and professional training and consultancy services, I collaborate nationally and internationally with other farmers, consultants, public institutions and universities.
