When memories come to life, they give rise to extraordinary stories like that of Agricola Locci which is distinguishing itself from many other farms both for Lorenzo's young age and for the seriousness and quality of the daily commitment to carry on an ancient tradition , that of extra virgin olive oil.
It was born in 2016 and is a farm created by Lorenzo Locci. In those years Lorenzo devoted himself to the studies of Economics and Commerce and at the same time to the continuation of the agricultural traditions undertaken by his grandparents in the sector of extra virgin olive oil production.
Since the birth of the business, Lorenzo's goal was to know how to manage an oil mill and to produce oil of the highest quality, so Lorenzo undertook a course of study to become a specialized oil mill technician. Lorenzo has also successfully completed all the courses necessary to become an expert oil taster and is registered in the register, consequently he is well acquainted with all the organoleptic characteristics of the oil.
Agricola Locci is located on a hill in Giano dell’Umbria and is immersed in the olive grove of the Colli Martani in Umbria. In this territory the Cultivar Moraiolo and the Cultivar San Felice are distinguished
The main feature is precisely the uniqueness of the Cultivar San Felice which is present exclusively in the municipality of Giano dell'Umbria imported by the Benedictine monks who resided in the Abbey of San Felice in front of the company.
Currently, Agricola Locci owns and manages about 8000 olive trees between secular and other younger plants.
All the olives are processed in the latest generation mill in a continuous cycle where oils are created exclusively cold.
Lorenzo's goal was and still is to create extra virgin olive oils of the highest quality that are also recognized in national and international competitions as outstanding oils and to make the culture of quality oil known to everyone.
We want to help everyone to consider oil not as a condiment or a fat, but as a fundamental ingredient for our cuisine and for our health. In addition to embellishing the dish, oil is also good for health and for us at Agricola Locci it is essential to spread and pass on this ancient but still current culture.
