Azienda Agricola Fratepietro - Cerignola (FG) - Puglia

Why we chose them
Proud of the ancient family traditions, the Fratepietro Farm tries to combine the centenary handicraft tradition with modern agriculture. Today, the company is managed by Giovanni and his son Andrea, who represent the latest generation of a family that has been working on the cultivation of table olives since 1890, when the founder Giovanni Fratepietro inherited the family farm from his grandfather. Since then, season after season, the Bella di Cerignola olives are harvested when they reach the right degree of maturation, strictly by hand as ever, and processed immediately with natural ingredients, following the old family recipes. All the production process is controlled by the expert eyes of Andrea, Giovanni and Valentina, who guarantee quality throughout the entire chain. Excellence is in fact one of the fundamental values that distinguish Fratepietro's work, as well as respect for men, nature in its own time, genuine flavours and the idea of sustainable progress.
