The Mediterranean rendezvous between Europe and Africa
A few steps away from the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento, Fattoria Mosé is a magical natural spot. The farm, which hosts hundreds of visitors every year, is the essence of the agricultural tradition in Sicily. It counts over 2000 olive trees, 1200 of which are 500 to 600 years old. Each olive tree seems to tell a story and shows off a different personality. Strolling through the groves, split trunks, gnarly and twisted trees grab the eye and portray a story of resistance to the times and the weather. The captivating, sun-kissed, clay soil, which is yellow gold, spread the typical Sicilian warmth and makes the farm a peaceful oasis out of the hustle and bustle.
The olive groves are surrounded by almond trees, pistachios, carob trees, mulberries, and nut trees. All fertilizers are organic. The main cultivars are Leccino, Frantoio and Biancolilla while the oil yield swings from 18-20% to 15-16%.
