The Il Frantoio Farm is located in the Ostuni countryside, just a few kilometres away from the sea. Right in the heart of the soon to be Parco degli Ulivi Secolari (Park of the Centuries Old Olive Trees), the Trecolline Oil is produced from the drupes of these majestic old olive trees. The farm spans 72 hectares, and since 1996 part of their produce is being grown according to the certified organic farming system. Since 2004, the whole property operates under organic farming standards. The PDO Trecolline extra virgin oil is obtained by mixing 70% oil from centuries old olive trees of Ogliarola Salentina and 30% Pecholine, Frantoio, Coratina and Cima di Melfi varieties. The latter varieties were planted 15 years ago. The Trecolline brand name comes from the three hills that surround the olive groves. Aside from extra virgin olive oils, the farm also produces marmalades, fruit rosolios, seeds, herbs and berries and… olive leaves! The cave that once hosted the oil mill has become part of the various structures that make up the Il Frantoio facility, including rooms to accommodate farmhouse holiday guests.
