What does it mean to have your own oil mill? It means personally taking care of the delicate steps that lead from the olives to the quality oil, such as the immediate pressing of the drupes.
Moreover, having an “organic” oil mill means paying even greater attention to stainless steel materials and washability, the only thing which can guarantee the absence of any residue.
“The appropriate climate, the sea breeze and the winds constantly blowing between the sea and the mountains, the ideal exposure and the medium-textured soil have established an important milling tradition over time.”
Oil production is a job that offers meager immediate satisfaction and the Pomponio family has to deal with all the rigmarole concerning the change from tins to bottles, from shipping with couriers to the purchase of vans, from word of mouth to participation in trade fairs.
However, today Pomponio’s farm is a model company that takes care of every need of its customers and offers internships to students from the nearby agricultural institute.
