The farm grows over time in tandem with the hydraulic one to count about 65 hectares of olive and almond groves that stand out against the landscape north of Bari. 2015 marks the turning point. It is finally decided to honor the memory of Mario, who lays the first stone of what will be the De Palma farm and to complete his project and present themselves directly on the national and international market with a product of excellence.
The olives are harvested between October and November and pressed in the immediate following hours. The system used allows processing at a controlled temperature between 19 ° / 20 °. The management of oxygen at the entrance to the malaxers characterizes their processing and is a very important factor for the formation of lipoxygenase and therefore of aromas.
The processing of the “kneader” does not exceed 8/10 minutes to allow the product to express its uniqueness and its characteristics to the maximum.
Azienda De Palma has achieved the fundamental certifications that attest to its commitment to bringing organic products to the table that meet all the criteria, olive and almond cultivation, harvesting, processing of raw materials and packaging, valid for obtaining official certifications.
Olives, extra virgin olive oil as well as Filippo Cea almonds obtained the BioAgriCert certification in 2015, which certifies the products of the De Palma farm as organic.
