Sting and wife Trudie Styler have opened their own farm shop in the Italian region of Tuscany, selling products such us chestnut and acacia honey, organic extra virgin olive oil and biodynamic Chianti/Tuscan red wine and a speciality salami made from a local breed of pig that have been grown or reared on their 900 acre estate in the region. The estate Il Palagio will have these products for sale, directly from the farm gate. Sting unveiled the farm shop in front of neighbours, villagers and the mayor of the nearest town, Figline Valdarno. He said that there is a good “rapport” between good food and good music and told Corriere della Sera newspaper: “If I don’t eat well, I can’t sing.” Trudie donates 10% of all profits to the environmental causes she and Sting support, like the Soil Association, which promotes organic food and farming in the U.K., and the Rainforest Foundation, which the couple founded in 1989.
