Olive variety : Frantoio 50%, Moraiolo 30%, Leccino 20%

The farm is located in a green, uncontaminated valley on the slopes of Monte Morello, famous since the Middle Ages for its olive oil.

Today the farm covers about 550 hectares, 70 of which are specialized olive groves with over 20,000 olive trees of Leccino, Moraiolo, Frantoio and Pendolino varieties. The olive trees are surrounded by coppice woods and tall trees ranging from 250 to 1000 meters, reaching one of the three peaks of Monte Morello.

This pristine valley where time has stood still, is the green lung of Florence. Thanks to this peculiarity the farm is now organic and it is included in the area of community interest (SCI).

During the crushing season, Volmiano is the ideal destination to visit a traditional mill that still today uses millstones, presses and pressing mats.
