The story of “Frantoio Foddi” began in the fifties, after World War II, when uncle Nicolò came up with the idea of restoring an old, abandoned oil-mill. Some years later, dad Fiorenzo completely renovated it. In 1991, mum Angela, with the help of her four children, pursued its renovation and combined the ancient traditions with the latest techniques of harvesting, production and preservation.
Our olive trees mainly belong to the local “Nera di Gonnos” cultivar, as well as the “Pitz’e Carroga” and “Semidana” cultivars. We inherited the trees from our grandparents, and they are now looked after and cultivated by Sisinnio, who combines old and modern cultivating methods.
