Olives leccine


These olives are typical of our area and are picked between October and November through hand-harvesting. Farmers bring the olives in our farm where they are washed, selected according to the size and put into water and salt for about 6 months in order to neutralize their bitter taste.



These small olives are very tasty and suitable to season aperitifs, salads, fish recipes or for meat cooked after the pizzaiola manner. The Apulian cuisine is never short of them. Try them in a potato-salad!

All our products are farmed with the integrated production technique on open field. Our hand picking allows us to make a first selection on site; and immediately after, the vegetables are transported to the facility to be processed. The processing is carried out strictly according to the tradition of Salento, then the vegetables are dried in the sun and salted by hand. Finally, the packaging is carried out by hand, and following step by step our typical recipes without any preservatives.
