The farm stands on 13 hectares of land on the Garavicchio hill, home of the great sculptures of the Tarot Garden of Niki de Saint Phalle. Since 2002, Maria Berti started to thoroughly restructure the farm. After a careful study of the soil, its water resources and the structure of this unique environment, she planted another 1000 trees. The harvest takes place between mid-October and the beginning of November, and is hand picked as well as differentiated, so as to obtain the most from each variety while still retaining the organoleptic properties of the product. Immediately after being picked, olives are taken to the oil mill for processing. After 15 days the oil is filtered and then nitrogen-stored. Amongst other cultural initiatives intended to inform people about the olive-growing world, Maria Berti arranged a photographic exhibition in 2006, welcomed children from the German School of Rome to help with olive picking, and organized pruning courses for the general public.
