TERRADIVA, MINERVINO MURGE (BT)
producer of organic almonds and organic Apulian taralli
They cover about 27 hectares of the farm and number about 10,000, have an average age of 60-70 years, and are rooted in tuffaceous soil.
The predominant olive variety is Coratina, we also have a part of olive trees with olives of the Ogliarola barese variety.
In recent years we have planted a new olive grove with olives of the Leccino variety.
cover about 16 hectares of the farm and number about 6,400; they have an average age of 6 years.
The varieties of our almonds are typical of Puglia: the Filippo Cea and the Genco.
Our idea is to take care of this still hidden part of Apulia, making it feel like a gentle Diva, giving it back the beauty, respect and dignity it deserves, enriching it with the non-abandonment of the land, the wisdom of the old generations and the expertise of the new.
…Fear not, she will not be snobbish but she will be a green Diva!
I take care of the agronomic phase in olive and almond groves, processing and packaging of oil and almonds.
I research clients and take care of the relationship with them.
I am an agronomist and during the course of my thesis I analyzed the olive oil supply and value chain, comparing the experience of two Protected Designations of Origin (PDO): “Terra di Bari” and “Priego de Cordoba” (Spain).
