In the 19th century Pietro and Domenico Clarici planted olive trees on the hills East of Foligno and in 1874 they completed their project by setting up an oil mill in a former convent building, located in the old town centre of Foligno. Their extra virgin olive oil, produced with traditional Umbrian varieties, has been highly praised in the most important fairs throughout Italy and abroad. Most relevantly, the Paris world fair in 1900.
Approximately 200 quintals of extra virgin olive oil are produced yearly, a figure that is bound to increase as new olive groves start producing. The olive groves are located at altitudes ranging from 350 to 600 metres above sea level along the Foligno hills, in the heart of Umbria, between Assisi and Spoleto, with absolute prevalence of the Moraiolo variety and minimal shares of Leccino and Frantoio. Olives are hand picked before becoming completely ripe and are immediately crushed in the farm’s own oil mill.
