Agrestis

Our Story 

 

 

Agrestis is based in Buccheri, a small town in the hinterland of  Syracuse. The whole area, at an altitude of about 820 meters above sea level, is made of steep hills, beautiful woods, and ravines and the olives represent a culture for centuries.

Giuseppe Paparone and Lorenzo Nicotra, residents of Buccheri and lifelong friends, launched the small cooperative in 2003, to protect the century-old trees growing on the steep lands nearby and to turn the domestic production into a quality business.

Later, their sons Pietro and Salvatore joined them, improving the business with their knowledge and passion.

They acquired around 8 hectares of olive groves and part of them were converted in biological, and the rest are managed in lease.

From the beginning, the main philosophy for their project consists in guarantee a high quality for a “precious aliment” which is the expression of the Sicilian traditions.

They currently own about 20.000 trees, meaning a hard and continuous work all year long to check every tree’s blossoming stages.

 Agrestis has been winning prestigious international and national contests for years due to the quality of the evo oil produced with the unique TondaIblea olive; this variety develops his best characteristics in the territory of Buccheri.
