IT BEGAN LIKE THIS…
We are a Farm Shop and Farm house consisting of Henrik and Gioanna (Mom and Dad) and our daughter, Helena. We are Danes but we have been living in the USA for many years and one day we decided to follow our dream and the wish for a healthier lifestyle, more in touch with nature and without today’s stress. This lifestyle we found in “la bella Toscana” in our Tuscan, rustic Olive Farm from 1790 with it’s adjoining plot of land in the Tuscan hills of approximately 350 meters above sea level. It’s from here we wanted to offer you our homegrown products.
We took over the Casale 3 Danesi farm in 2012. We produce our own hand crafted Extra Virgin Olive Oil here and we have approximately 400 trees in all sizes. We have 4 sorts of olives, Frantoio, Leccino, Maraiolo and Pandolino, all typical Tuscan sorts of Olives. Our Extra Virgin Olive oil consists of 80 % Frantoio,10 % Leccino and 10 % of Moraiolo and Pendolino.
We believe in Biological farming and the organic farming methods and we use no pesticide what so ever on our land. Our olives are hand picked and specifically selected in End October, early November in order to achieve a very aromatic, green and peppery Virgin Olive Oil. Every day, during the harvest, we immediately bring the fresh olives to the mill for immediate milling, again to achieve the absolute best quality. On our Farm we also have a nice assortment of fruit trees, like pomegranate, plums, apples, apricots, peers, figs, blueberry, cherries, mandarins, citrus and orange trees. We are working hard on being able to offer various marmalade’s and specialties from our farm directly to you.
Wine production is also on our wishlist, in 2015 we planted our small vineyard, which will be ready in 2020 to make our own 100 % Sangiovese red wine.
We have various herbs on the farm, rosemary, timian, lavender, bay leaves, wild fennel, wild mint, lemon balm and lime blossom, made for various natural tee’s.
