Producers of excellence for over a century

The Fattoria Poggio di Fiesole is nestled in the Florentine hills, about 450 meters above sea level and three kilometers away from the historic center of Fiesole. The farm is spread over 28 hectares, 15 of which are dedicated to olive growing. The estate, which has been owned by the Scaravelli family for over a century, produces 40 quintali of organic olive oil each year. The olives are grown according to the principles and rules of organic agriculture. The organic growing method was introduced in the 1970’s by Alberto Scaravelli, who applied it with conviction and foresight. Alberto, a passionate researcher of organic farming, was a pioneer in the field of ecology and organic agriculture. Today, Alberto’s sons, Enrico and Dario, continue what their father started with dedication; working to preserve the environment, while guaranteeing the highest quality of extra virgin olive oil.

Our values

1. Passion
Working in the fields is tiring, but we approach each day with gratitude and enthusiasm, knowing that the fattoria is located in one of the world’s most beautiful places and that the work in which we are engaged is rewarding.
2. Excellence
We are never satisfied. Every day, in everything we do, from the first pruning, to pressing the olives, our goal is always to extract the finest oil from the highest quality olives.
3. Research
We are grateful for the extensive cultural background that has been handed down to us by those who cared for the earth and plants before us. Our goal is to follow the path laid for us by our predecessors, with a watchful eye to the future. We hope to discover new practices that facilitate organic cultivation and continually strive to improve our product by researching methods that enhance the quality of our olives.
4. Harmony
We believe there is a balance that governs the relationship between the environment and humans. We strive to preserve the unique heritage of biodiversity that surrounds us and to maintain the natural beauty of the hills, olive trees, and peace.
