The trees in the Carlocimino grove are tiered and sit on a hilltop overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea. On a clear day you can see the island of Stromboli, which is one of Italy’s three active volcanoes situated off the coast of Calabria. In 1934 we opened our first olive mill in Carlocimino. The new mill is located just below the grove.
If you adopt a tree from this grove you will first receive the Welcome Package which contains:
- Adoption Certificate
- Photo of your tree
- Certifcate & Photo holder
- Welcome letter
And then in the spring, you will receive 6 tins (total of 3 liters) of your tree's olive oil.
Olives from your tree will be pressed, along with neighboring trees (it's a family affair).
