Organic farming for Frantoio Muraglia means respecting the environment and the bond with the ancient olive trees that have always been a source of nourishment and strength for us. It means protecting and preserving the complexity of the agricultural landscape which is itself a spontaneous defense against the attacks of parasites and an increase of the natural fertility of the soil. The olive harvest by hand and the cold pressing of the olives complete the production and closes the circle from the field to the table.

Frantoio Muraglia was born in Andria, capital of the Apulia oil region, five generations ago, but the real family patriarch has watched the seasons come and go for no fewer than 450 years – a majestic coratina olive-tree, a native cultivar whose wealth of polyphenols is almost unmatched among the 538 classified Italian varieties. The history as oil producers begins with this green giant that stands tall over our olive groves – some 40 hectares in the uplands of Murgia.
Frantoio Muraglia tries to preserve the biodiversity of the agricultural landscape and to protect the plants of strategic importance for their supply, such as the olive trees themselves. They still pick the olives by hand and press them cold in the ancient stone press. The goal is always to make the finest Italian extra virgin oil, absolutely without compromise.
