We are proud to be able to state that Il Casellino operates in perfect harmony with the environment, respecting the natural growth of plants and with targeted and contained pruning interventions.

Even in the oil production phase, we maintain traditional procedures: the olives are harvested completely by hand, with the help of combs or other equipment that make the fruits fall onto the nets positioned on the ground below the plants.

The fruits are harvested, from October to November, at the right degree of ripeness so that the oil has harmonious and balanced aromas.

The pressing of the olives takes place a few hours after the harvest a tout Owen mill, in accordance with tradition: this guarantees an excellent and valuable tuscan extra virgin olive oil.
