Organic farm in Tuscany
The Podere della Crocchia farm is located in the province of Arezzo on the border with that of Siena in the Chianti area.
It consists of 60 hectares of land with olive trees, vineyards and woods and is managed on a family level.
We have been harvesting olives for generations to produce quality oil; around the 2000s we decided to go organic by certifying the company and then bottling the oil since we never made use of chemicals in previous years.
The harvesting grounds are located around 500 meters above sea level where they are best protected from frost and fog. Many are terraced with dry stone walls, the classic Tuscan landscape.
The olive trees are native, the varieties present are Moraiolo, Frantoio, Leccino, Pendolino and Correggiolo.
