Sustainability and passion for our land
The farm Terre di Zaccanello stretches for about 10 hectares northeast of Agrigento’s coast, in the county of Racalmuto. The olive grove, from which a fine extra virgin olive oil is produced, dominates the landscape and embraces their boundaries.
Every kind of olive cultivated is characterised by a different smell and taste. A unique oil comes from the careful mixture of “Nocellara del Belice”, “Biancolilla”, “Gioconda” and “Bella di Spagna”, combined with constant care of the olive trees.
Cradled by the course of the seasons, the land embraces different colours in every moment of the year and produces almonds, pomegranates and prickly pears.
Our mission is to enhance Sicily, its territory and its wonderful products and we try to pursue it while minimizing our environmental impact through sustainable solutions.
The electricity we use comes exclusively from our solar panels, while the thermal panels allow us to produce hot water. We also collect and filter rainwater to irrigate our lands and compost organic waste to obtain natural fertilizers.
We use biodegradable soaps and try to minimize the waste of plastic. Where possible, we use natural, biodegradable and biocompatible paints, which do not present any element of toxicity.
We believe that awareness is the first step towards a more sustainable future: for this reason, we invite you to recycle our bottles and cans properly, or to reuse them making original flower pots, lamps and chandeliers.
