In Umbria the cultivation of olive trees has ancient origins, starting from the Etruscan age, and it has always been associated with a simple and harmonious lifestyle, that follows the rhythms of nature. That is exactly on the Umbrian hills that in 1850 the history of Frantoio Bartolini started and it has been based on the family business for six generations. The firm started as a small oil mill with animal-drawn machinery and over the years it grew and increased the production, always maintaining the direct control of the production chain of its products. It is thanks to the trace-ability of the production chain that a lot of Bartolinis’ products can boast the “Umbrian” name of origin.
To obtain a high- quality extra virgin olive oil, it is important to respect specific criteria during the milling of olives. In fact, this is one of the most delicate steps of the entire production process. Milling operations need a short time from the moment of the harvest, 12 hours at most, in order to fully preserve the freshness of the fruit. That is why the mill, producing the olives works also during the night.
All the farm’s production is acknowledged as being organically grown and is certified by the competent organizations.
