The Classic Oil obtained from our 13 thousand olive trees, grown on our estates, has wonderful nutritional and health properties, more enhanced by the biological management of cultivation. The harvest period is slightly postponed compared to the "Don Ciccio" line in order to have a more delicate product with a less intense fruitiness.
Doing organic farming is a demanding activity as the means to feed plants and to defend against parasites are more expensive and also because organic production is lower than that with conventional agriculture.
However, organic has allowed us to obtain products of the highest quality, respecting nature. It is not a simple cultivation technique, but the process we carry out is synonymous with respect and love for our plants and our land. Organic means learning and interpreting the daily signals that plants send us. Observe, study and above all foresee with the help of Science and with respect for Nature. For us, cultivation operations are interventions for the care of our trees, and for this reason they never stop during the course of the year.
