We are Alivu, which means Olive in Sicilian. These pages are one British-Sicilian family’s story of planting a new grove and falling in love with an old one. They tell of our steep learning curve, from archaeologists to agriculturalists. We’d like to tell you all about what real Extra Virgin Olive Oil is really like, how its peppery, bitter bite means your oil is brimming with fresh, raw poliphenols, vitamins, antioxidants and even anti-inflamatory molecules. We also want to bring you some, straight from our organic olives grown on the hills of Sicily!
Our groves are in the beautiful mountains of central Sicily, we go as often as we can and do all of our own pruning and harvesting ourselves. We are based in Malmesbury, Wiltshire.
