Organic Extra virgin olive oil 100% Italian

THE FARM


The farm, streches out unbroken for a total of 37 acres, located within the territory of the Comunità Montana dell’Alto Tammaro and precisely at locality Pagliarelle in the municipality of Morcone, a pristine area of the southern Apennine Mountains at an altitude between 1600 and 1900 feet above sea level.

The farm, founded by Gabriele Sr. in 1929, originally had a cereal and zootechnical aim, with olive oil and wine production. In 1999, under Giacomo (second generation olive grower), the farm decided to specialize exclusively into olive oil production. In 2004, when the the olive grove had grown to 10 acres, the olive farm went organic with the goal of pursuing the best principles of healthy food production and maintaining the best environmentally friendly practice. In the following years new olive groves were planted.

In 2014 the farm was handed over to Gabriele Jr. and Angela (third generation growers), young enthusiast entrepreneurs in their early twenties, full of ideas and desire to succeed. In January 2016, another 6 acres were planted covering all the available land devoted to olive growing on the olive farm.

In 2019 the farm was handed over back to Giacomo.

Olive Groves


In 1929 when the land was purchased the olive grove consisted of about 60 olive trees. In the '30s and '40s, Gabriele Sr. planted more olive trees totaling 120. At the time, the olive grove had the sole purpose of producing olive oil for the family consumption.
In 1999, the second generation of olive oil grower and producer decided to specialize their olive farm by planting the first 7 acres of Monicella variety (originally a variety from Valle Roveto in the province of L'Aquila) and, in 2000, about 2 acres of the Leccino variety. In 2004, when the the olive grove had grown to 10 acres, the olive farm went organic with the goal of pursuing the best principles of healthy food production and maintaining the best environmentally friendly practice. In 2005, the first 12 acres of Ortice, a typical local Sannio variety, were planted and, later in 2008, another 5 acres of Ortice variety were planted. Finally, in January 2016, another 6 acres of Ortice variety were planted covering all the available land devoted to olive growing on the olive farm.
Since 2015, under its own label, our olive farm has been bottling and selling the blend DELICATO, and three mono-varietal oils ORTICE, LECCINO, MONICELLA.
