The olive trees in Mattiu are bordered by a section of woods and we often see wild boar roaming through the grove. The trees are 80 to 100 years old (with a few youngsters in between) and the trunks are beginning to knot like their older brothers and sisters. Mattiu is short walk down a country road from the Casa Vecchia grove.
If you adopt a tree from this grove you will first receive the Welcome Package in a beautiful box which contains:
- Adoption Certificate
- Photos of your tree
- Three 500ml tins of extra virgin olive oil
- Welcome letter
And then in the spring, you will receive an additional 3 tins of olive oil from your tree.
Olives from your tree will be pressed, along with neighboring trees (it's a family affair).
