LANDSCAPE

 
 
Between Assisi and Spoleto, Foligno hills, covered with majestic olive trees, have always been the background to my family business; the foliage of these age-old trees paints this land green in every season.
 
Our farm, with about 14 hectares of olive groves, is set at an average altitude of 350 to 500 metres above sea level and there are about 5,000 olive trees in the moraiolo, frantoio and leccino varieties.
 
Recently, thanks to the collaboration with some local growers, we have managed to increase our olive production, reaching an extension of sixty hectares with about 22,000 olive trees.
 
The trees grow on sunny steep slopes; the chalky and stony soil, the mild, windy and moderately damp climate make this area ideal for olive growing.
