Our olive grove was very small when we started, with about 50 trees.
Over the years we have continued to plant new olive trees on the hills around and in front of the farmhouse, of the Pendolino, Frantoiano, and Leccino varieties.
Now, between new and old trees, we have about 700 olive trees. They have gradually come into production.
Thanks to its intense fruity aroma, accompanied by a slightly bitter aftertaste with a spicy streak, the oil we produce is particularly suitable for seasoning raw and cooked vegetables, on fish, and on bruschetta.
Production is limited and varies each year, depending on more or less favorable climatic conditions.
Thank goodness (the sun, water, air, chemicals are banned at Palmo di Terra) the oil produced from our small olive grove is good, with an average acidity of 0.1 to 0.3 depending on the year, well below the 0.8 limit that allows us to use the definition of extra virgin.
We sell it in different packaging: 0.75-liter bottles, 1, 3, and 5-liter cans.
