At Masseria Pilapalucci, most of our land is dedicated to growing organic almonds and organic olives for extra virgin oil. Our almonds are used by select bakeries in Europe. Shelled organic almonds are available in moderate to large quantities. Our wonderful almond oil is appreciated worldwide.
We also export extra virgin olive oil, using a cold press, which is a more expensive but higher quality process. Our extra virgin olive oil has been selected by Slow Food for the Guide to the Best Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Masseria Pilapalucci is a founding member of the Praesidium of Slow Food “Mandorla di Toritto” The Praesidium promotes the delicious local almonds named “Filippo Cea” and “Antonio Devito”.
