OLIVE OIL EXHIBITION

OLIVE OIL EXHIBITION

Thanks to Garda’s mild climate cultivating olives represents one of the most prosperous economic activities of the past. The olive requires special attention and consequently costs a lot to produce because of the strong competition between towns of the Mediterranean regions these activities declined during the post-war years. The olive grove is of one the particularities of our locality as the silver leaves of these centuries-old trees frame our hinterland.

The tradition of olive cultivation continues to be passed on and even today the Cooperativa Possidenti Oliveti, that affiliates all the olive-growers in Limone to its ancient olive-mill produces by millstones a cold pressed oil of very high quality.
