Located a few kilometers outside the port city of Trapani in Western Sicily, the Titone family's farm sits on 19 hectares of rolling hills, covered with an orchard of Nocellara, Biancolilla and Cerasuola olive trees. The farm was converted to organic farming in 1985 and the frantoio, or olive oil mill, was built in 1995.
The family also takes great pride in the D.O.P. (Denominazione di Origine Protetta/Protected Designation of Origin) status of their orchard, with 5,000 olive trees in the registrar. Their careful methods and attention to pruning and organic fly pest-control have set the Titone farm apart. This precision is no doubt based on the exacting nature of the family's other business... chemistry and pharmaceuticals!
The Titone’s extra virgin olive oil has won numerous awards at competitions throughout Italy, Switzerland, Germany and the US.
