It is this relationship with the land and sense of duty to the environment that has remained with me, and now brings these deeply-held memories and outlook to our farm. My lifelong commitment to sustainability is present in each and every decision, action and detail in producing our olive oil. This not only protects our surroundings and the farm, but delivers to our customers a product that is produced with respect and guaranteed quality.
This ethos goes well beyond modern “organic” labeling regulations and standards, again in our humble opinion, a series of fantasy bureaucratic measures that do little to monitor the real properties of products, and a lot to burden producers with layers of paperwork, that ends up being the only thing certification agencies monitor; paper not oil.
one that we heard a long time ago in East Africa from Lord Delamere, and it resonated strongly with our belief that land is not owned but entrusted to us in order to preserve it for future generations.
