The project

Adopt an olive tree from the "Il Bottaccio" farm in Campiglia Marittima (Italy) and receive your organic olive pesto at home. Luca will take care of your adoption and take its picture. You will also be able to download the adoption certificate, and if you wish, plan your visit to the farm. As the production coming from one olive tree is big, the adoption is shared among various people. If you wish to have a bigger share, you may adopt more than once. You do not enter into any long-term commitment: Although your adoption will be renewed automatically, you will always be informed in advance and may decide to cancel your adoption at any time as long as the preparation has not yet begun.

What do you adopt?

You adopt an olive tree from our farm in Campiglia Marittima (Italy) that we cultivate following the Organic Farming regulations of the European Union. We are already in the process of converting and expect to be officially certified by 2023. The olive varieties grown on the hills of the Palmentello area, located near Venturina Terme (LI), are different. The Leccino variety belonging to the Oleaceae family is one of the most representative plants of Tuscan flavour, it is native to Tuscany and is very important for our territory. The Leccino olive tree is a very pleasant sight and can reach large dimensions. One of its features is the fact that it has hanging branches and its foliage is dense and extensive. This plant is certainly one of the most rustic varieties among those grown in Italy. Its seasonal olive production is very high and its characteristics are not found in other varieties. For example, during the winter months, it can withstand cold temperatures so as to best survive intense winters. These characteristics explain why we should continue to promote this variety, also in view of meteorological changes (especially cold waves) which are increasingly affecting our area. We harvest olives while respecting and protecting the fauna that inhabits our fields, especially birds, and for this reason we have signed the agreement for the protection of migratory birds in the olive groves. Your adoption is 35 years old and its maximum lifespan is 100 years. For as long as you want to keep your adoption, and we can continue taking care of it, you can renew year after year. If your adoption stops producing for any reason, we will replace it with another, and guarantee you the delivery from the production of other units. Your adoption produces an average of 20kg of olives each season. With this amount we can produce around 30kg of organic olive pesto. 50 CrowdFarmers will share the adoption, and each one will receive a box containing 0.6kg of organic olive pesto.

What will you receive?

Each season we will send you a box with: 4 x__ Tuscan Organic Leccino Olive Pesto__ (150g, glass jar) Pesto Toscano with organic Leccino olives consists of: 40% extra virgin olive oil (produced by our company), pitted Leccino black olives (produced by our company), Grana Padano PDO (from Italy), milk, animal rennet, salt, preservative: lysozyme from egg, pine nuts (from Italy) and cashews (from outside the EU) and lactic acid. You can eat it with handmade tagliatelle or as a dressing for spelt or rice salads; it is also perfect for making vegetarian sandwiches. Store away from light and heat sources: once opened, cover with oil and refrigerate for up to 2 days. The ingredient list as well as allergen information can be downloaded from "Additional Analysis".

When will you receive it?

You will receive your box of organic Leccino olive pesto starting from January.

Why should you adopt?
Know who, how and where your food is produced. Source your food in a conscious, direct and consistent manner.
Buying without intermediaries allows the producer to obtain better prices. This helps generate better jobs and social standards in rural areas.
When you adopt something, you allow the producer to ensure the sale at a fixed price and to produce on demand. This also avoids wasting food that is grown without being sold.
It supports producers who strive for environmentally friendly packaging and cultivation practices.
