The organic farm “Il Gobbo” comes from the union of desire and possibility. The land we have has been used for centuries in the production of oil. It is reminiscent of a tradition that reflects the will to keep alive a story that tells itself in the generous green hills. Our desire is in fact to offer high quality and biological products, in respect of the land and the new demands of agricultural sustainability. All our fruits are grown and sold under the brad ICEA. The choice to engage in a diverse and modest cultivation reflects in every aspect our will to follow carefully the stages of production. Love and respect for nature are the foundations of our company, the opportunity to experience agriculture as development, not only of the land but also of the link between the land and its seasons.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil
The 1200 olive trees of the company are situated on the hills adjacent to the small villages of Segromigno in Monte and S. Peter a Marcigliano. The old trees, looked after by many farmers over time, retain the memory of an ancient tradition and today raise the possibility to obtain excellent quality olive oil without the use of manual fertilization or additional treatments.
The honey of our bees is strictly organic, like all the other products the company offers. The richness of the territory and of the blooms allows us to obtain different types of honey without practicing nomadism. Acacia honey, wildflower and honeydew, of distinctive flavor, are produced in compliance with bees and their natural rhythms. Our small production allows us to experience more sustainable beekeeping methods in an attempt to obtain high quality products, even if in limited quantities.
A small pearl of our company is the cultivation of red fruits. Blueberries, redcurrants, raspberries and gooseberries are sold at a retail market and scrupulously taken care of from the beginning of flowering until ripening and harvesting period. Our small production allows us to take care of the plants in every stage of growth. Harvesting is done manually, in order to avoid damaging the fruit and to keep the organoleptic properties intact.
