About
We are a 11 hectare organic farm located half way between Florence & Rome. We produce olive oil, wine, honey, herbs & wheat in one of tuscany's hidden rural gems....you'll never have experienced a Tuscany quite like it! Please come and visit our farm. From May to October we run a "Field to Table" healthy eatery in the most beautiful setting, a fixed menu using only our own ingredients. For that special occasion (birthday, anniversary, romantic date) you can book us exclusively for yourselves. We also offer farm days for people on vacation in the area where we teach you about what we do, how we do it and you can also learn to prepare some simple dishes. Just call us or send us an email. We are bilingual English/Italian. Great for adults and kids alike. Visit our website or call us.

Wonderful experience
Jul 2019 • Couples
Suzy Alexander is a devoted organic farmer and hostess. Eight of us enjoyed a delightful lunch prepared for us and served under an arbor in her backyard. The food was delicious and Suzy is a wonderful host. We loved every minute of our visit and hope you take the time on your trip to Tuscany to enjoy this experience as well.

Great organic farm with delicious food and drink
Jul 2019 • Friends
Wonderful organic farm run by Suzy, who’s originally from Manchester, England. She is the consummate hostess, who truly believes in her organic farming and serves a fantastic meal, made from products, produced on her farm. She is passionate about the food she produces and serves, but is flexible in designing the meal, to suit her visitors. It was definitely worth a visit.

Excellent lunch at Suzie’s yard
Jun 2019 • Family
Very near Cetona, our party of 11 (grandparents, parents and kids) had a wonderful, slow Tuscan lunch prepared by Suzie and her helpers. All the food and wine was local (and most of it from the farm itself), and afterwards Suzie showed us round her beautiful yard, giving us some great tips for our own gardens and vegetable patches. A highlight of our Tuscan break.

Unusual evening
Aug 2018 • Family
Not knowing what to expect, it became an interesting evening. No choices as menu depends on what is available in the day as everything comes from their land or nearby including the wine. Being 18 of us, varying tastes could have been a problem. Suzy is a good host, very friendly. Eating under the stars was lovely. Plenty of animals around. If you want something a bit different maybe worth a visit

Authentic experience
Oct 2017 • Couples
Worth taking a trip off the regular tourist route and paying Suzies Yard a visit. The food is produced by the owners, Olive Oil, Wine and even their own wheat for Pasta as well as plenty of home grown vegetables. It's a great way to try real local food and have some good conversation, you'll learn a lot about the region. The village of Cetona is also a hidden Gem, it has the same beauty of more popular Tuscan hilltop towns, without the streams of tourists.

What an incredible experience!!
Jul 2018 • Couples
On our last night in fabulous Cetona, we had dinner, table for two in a field looking out on the setting sun over Susie’s organic vineyard ... and it was far beyond expectations. Susie and her summer chef from Sonoma, Zach, served up a four course dinner made exclusively with ingredients grown right in “Suzie’s Yard”, a 30-plus acre organic property nestled in the picturesque Tuscan hills just a few kilometers from Cetona. The food was delicious, from the home-made hummus and freshly baked bread, to the tart and somewhat spicy salad course, to the plant-based and super yummy borage lasagne, to the fresh fruit crumble, to the home-grown and dried herb tea (multiple herbs and roots all grown locally)! And Suzie walks the talk ... living an organic, truly farm/garden to table existence but also living a Tuscan lifestyle and even helping local refugees from West Africa make a new start in Italy.

Wonderful, delicious, inspiring, romantic and ... more. Highly and enthusiastically recommend ....

Enjoyable & Impactful
Oct 2017 • Friends
Wow, this was one of the highlights of our trip to Tuscany! I so enjoyed listening to Suzie share her passion about organic farming, producing olive oil and using the "tools of nature" to provide healthy and delicious foods. The meal we had was wonderful and it was so nice sitting in her yard under the pergola enjoying great food and of course wine. She also sent us to a winery a short drive away where we tasted amazing wines that have been grown and produced organically as well. It is very clear that Suzie has a passion for healthy foods, olive oil and wine and she shares it so wonderfully at her home in Cetona, Italy. If you can, be sure to plug in a visit to Suzies Yard!

Great learning experience in a tranquil setting
Oct 2017 • Friends
Our group of 16 friends took a day off from touring beautiful towns in Umbria and Tuscany for a more laid-back adventure. Suzie's story is fascinating: Leaves fast-paced life as a CEO in London to buy an olive grove because she and her husband Antonio want quality lives for their children, and share a passion for healthy, organic products. Our tour included a farm-to-table lunch, and outing to the Sangiovese winery owned by her friends Paulo and Stephany. We were so enchanted by both couples that we invited them to dinner at our villa...and they came! What a pleasure, to befriend these people who live and love the land. One of my best memories of our trip!

Suzie’s Yard is a rare treat!
Oct 2017
If you can get to heaven by grit and hard work then Suzie is a saint! Organic sustainability are the keys to Suzie’s kingdom! A beautiful two acre farm where she grows and bottles her own olive oil as well as a small vineyard producing her own label wine. We spent a wonderful day with Suzie, her dad, and her big black lab Luna. Learned about the challenges of organic farming all about olive oil. Suzie prepared a wonderful meal from her yard and introduced us to farming as it was before pesticides, tractors and genie mods.

Fascinating visit
Jun 2017 • Couples
We visited the farm and spent a lovely hour with Suzie hearing about and tasting her olive oil. We were also lucky enough to taste some of her wine and hear lots about the ups and downs of Tuscan farming! She is great to talk to and a visit is recommended. Only sad we couldn't stay for dinner.
