The olive mill at Fontanaro run by solar panels and the residuals go to the soil as fertilizer, this is why we are not only organic but also ecological.
We harvest every October, before the others!
Our mill by Enologica Mori is considered one of the world top tecnology and excellent olive mill
In the production of il Fontanaro organic extra virgin olive oil, our target is to reach the ultimate quality.
We are able to reach this result since we control all phases of the process from the manual harvesting in accordance with the old tradition to the pressing of the olives at our own technically advanced mill.
We press the olives within 3 hours of their harvesting. This is the most important requirement to obtain
the top quality and the highest nutritional benefits and flavor of the oil.
At our farm we are totally committed to protect and respect the environment; we produce electricity with solar cells, we recoup the rain water for irrigation, and mainly use wood for heating. We recycle all the garbage and we don’t use any chemicals.
We return the residues of the oil processing as natural fertilizer to the soil.
