Cerza, is dialect for Quercia which means Oak in Italian - a walk through the Cerzeto grove and you will see where it got its name. A section of Oak trees split the grove down the middle, which gives us a great place to find wild porcini mushrooms in autumn! The trees in the Cerzeto grove are mostly 60-80 years old.
If you adopt a tree from this grove you will first receive the Welcome Package in a beautiful box which contains:
- Adoption Certificate
- Photos of your tree
- Three 500ml tins of extra virgin olive oil
- Welcome letter
And then in the spring, you will receive an additional 3 tins of olive oil from your tree.
Olives from your tree will be pressed, along with neighboring trees (it's a family affair).
