    “In our oil mill, where we squeeze the Taggiasca olives from our olive groves, we get an excellent Extra Virgin Olive Oil which tastes delicate, fruity and slightly bitter, absolutely genuine.”

The method of organic agriculture respects the environment and the natural cycles of the nature without forcing trees and soil, so in certified farms, as Olive Farm Rudasso, no chemicals are used.

 

What does organic farming mean

How does it work

Why do we follow this method

We chose this cultivation technique because we love nature and our centuries-old trees and to offer our customers a good and very genuine product.

Respect for tradition is very close to our farm's heart and we never ceased the olden methods of cultivation, so we asked and obtained certification compliance with organic farming methods from BioAgriCert certification body.

This cultivation method is natural and respects the environment, it requires much manual work and reduces the amount of olives collected, but ensures superior quality of fruits and oil.

Rudasso’s olive orchards are located inland at an altitude between 300 and 500 meters above sea level where olive fruit fly is barely present, thanks to this particular location, our plants are naturally protected.

To feed the soil of our groves under organic farming, we can use only organic nutrients, i.e. of animals or plants origin, from organic farming. Where our land needs enrichment, as tradition dictates, we sow organic beans (Vicia faba minor) and, when they are ripe, we incorporate them to the land implementing harrow.

Beans are legumes that make easier for olive trees to absorb nitrogen, a key nutrient naturally present in air and soil.

Organic farming is OGM free.
