Located on a hill in the middle of the Polverino forest, facing south, the farm spans approximately 20 hectares, 6 of which are olive grown. The 1150 centuries old olive trees, which were originally in a state of abandon, have been reclaimed and are now farmed organically. The oil is made exclusively from olives grown on the farm, which are harvested at the proper ripening stage and crushed within 24 hours in an organic mill without using a centrifugal separator; processing temperatures never exceed 27°c, in compliance with cold extraction standards.
