The Food Expert:

Our farm is above all a lifestyle. A few years ago, we decided to leave our jobs to move to Pedalino, in the Comiso countryside. We have started a multi-functional closed loop farm: so we can produce everything we need for our activity within the farm itself.

We grow biodynamic vegetables, a method of farming that encourages a view of each biodynamic farm as an integrated, whole, living organism. At the farm, you can also participate in the olive harvest and learn how Sicilian extra virgin olive oil is made!


Cancellation policy: all bookings for the Sicilian extra virgin olive oil harvestig experience can be cancelled within 3 days from the start date of the experience. Read the Terms and Conditions.

We grow biodynamic vegetables, a method of farming that encourages a view of each biodynamic farm as an integrated, whole, living organism, and recommends growing vegetables in season.

We are very mindful of life cycles: for each work in our vegetable garden, we follow the phases of the moon. A practice that farmers have been using for centuries in agriculture to grow genuine vegetables.
