This extra virgin is produced by the farmers. The olives are grown on several small farms, that are just three to seven acres and are located within minutes of the cooperative that press their oil.
Guardians of Old Traditions
We work with a special group of farmers who are safeguarding the regional ancient varieties of olives of the Umbria region in Central Italy. They grow and harvest the olives, which are then pressed and bottled by the local cooperative. The farmers are committed to preserving the ancient olive trees and will continue to maintain high standards for the highest-quality and best-tasting olive oil.
In Umbria, most of the olive trees have been growing on the hills for centuries, which makes the oil so fine. The older the plant, the better the flavor.
Our partners, the farmers, and their families have been harvesting these local regional olive varieties for decades.
