The Consortium takes on the role of an olive grower and in full transparency makes the entire path that extra-virgin olive oil DOP Rivera Ligure travels from the tree to the table visible to everyone.
Practically speaking, the Consortium has taken over the free management of an olive farm with 137 trees of taggiasca olives. The site are the heights of Lucinasco, renowned and ideal soil for the cultivation of olives. A small world of stone, of grassy, fertile land, with glimpses of heaven, the sun between the leafy branches and even the the “casella” or “little shack” was once used by shepherds during winter. This will become the olive grove of the Ligurian Riviera. A sort of workshop site, in fact, open to cooperation, to guided visits and experimentation.
The best care will be taken to keep the olive grove in the best conditions of productivity. And an account of the practices, all rigorously manual, will be posted online, given the nature of the territory and also the costs involved in producing the DOP Riviera Ligure extra-virgin olive oil . A success after a full year of hard work, but hopefully also a gratifying experience.
