What do you adopt?
An olive tree from the farm “ il Bottaccio” in Tuscany. The olive trees are from the varieties Frantoio, Moraiolo and Leccino. We collect the olives respecting and protecting the fauna that lives in our olive grove, especially the birds. This is why we have signed [the manifesto for the protection of migratory birds in olive groves](http://bit.ly/2MML0Eg). Each {variety} bears an average of 30 kg per season. Each {variety} produces an average of {masterUnitsMax}l of {production} per season.
What will you receive?
The box we will send you contains: 6 x PGI TOSCANO (500ml) It's an extra virgin olive oil with a fruity aroma and vegetable notes. It has a medium-light acidity and well pronounced spicy notes, with hints of ripe olives and sweet almonds. You can pair it with dishes such as roasted rabbit, marinated lemon fish, roasted turbot, grilled cuttlefish, barley sprout salads, and other seafood dishes. The PGI Tuscany oil is made with 50% Frantoio, 30% Leccino and 20% Moraiolo varieties. The best way to preserve your oil is to keep it away from sunlight and heat sources. This way the oil maintains its characteristics for at least 18 months.
When will you receive it?

Luca Guglielmi
Our story begins with Ermelindo in 1925, Luca's grandfather. Emerlindo often enjoyed dinner under the leaves of the trees with his family in summer. The scenery and atmosphere were wonderful. The main element of Mediterranean cuisine could not be missing from this long table: olive oil. Taking advantage of these moments, the family got together and had the tradition of getting together very early to take care of the trees and prune them perfectly to prepare them well for the next harvest. It is a story that goes back 4 generations and continues with his grandson Luca, the current owner. He wants to modernize the organization and the productive structure of the company keeping an eye on the past and the purity of its flavors, so that the virgin olive oil can survive and continue satisfying the palate of future generations and all those who love to experience this small journey in our history.
Luca Guglielmi

"As a Farmer - I, Luca - have set myself the following goal: I would like to bring the taste experience of this wonderful food produced in our Mediterranean fields to life for the Crowd farmers, far away from Tuscany. They, too, should be able to enjoy a piece of our Tuscan lifestyle that is as alive, authentic and natural as ever."

Our address is Via botro ai marmi, 1 in Campiglia Maritima where you will see a farm: our farm. It is located near Venturina Terme, a thermal area on the hill, and is called Palmentello because "palmeto" is an ancestral term for millstones, very common in the area. The area is full of trees more than 30 years old. We have many varieties typical of this area, called the Val Di Cornia: Frantoio, Moraiolo, Leccino, Maurino and Leccio del Corno.We mix the oil of these varieties in different proportions and thus obtain different olive oils. This area, thanks to the thermal water that flows through the subsoil, is perfect for the cultivation of olive trees, artichokes, spinach and vines, as done by our neighbours.
