Several generations of family olive-growing experience have contributed to the cultivation of single-variety orchards extending to 60 ha (148 ac) along Maida’s hillsides. Olives belonging to the Carolea variety are cold-pressed within three hours of harvesting at the in-house, automatic continuous-cycle mill with open malaxing vats to obtain a high-quality, biological extra virgin olive oil.
In order to keep abreast of the times, the farm has introduced regular innovations, including the decision to convert to organic farming. Hence, the production of organic oil with unvaried quality properties has been evaluated.
In the 2012 oil campaign, the DOP Lametia organic extra virgin olive oil was certified. The organic extra virgin olive oil obtained from the Costantino organic orchards is processed and bottled in-house, combining passion and expertise into a 100% Italian product.
Based on the idea that living in the countryside can be an enjoyable and rewarding experience, the Costantino family has decided to share their house with all those who love nature and are willing to taste Calabrian traditional, healthy food with a modern twist.
