From the Best Olives, We Make the Best Oils
Asaro Farms grows the most diverse medley of olives throughout its many fields! Because we make the best olive oil, we choose to grow the best variety and highest quality of olives in the world.
What makes the location of Asaro farms so unique, is that 97% of the olive trees grown in the valley of Belice, are Nocellara del Belice olives. Also known as Castelvetrano, these olives have a distinct bright green hue, a wide spherical shape, and a dense, meaty flesh within smooth buttery skin. It is this uniquely Sicilian combination of flavor that makes these olives the best in the world. Their taste is unparalleled, and these olives are dually cultivated to be the best for the table in the world, as well as to be pressed for the finest quality of extra virgin oil. This doubly purposed fruit is the life of the Valle del Belice, and the heart of the Asaro Farm itself.
Also flourishing throughout the fields are the Biancolilla, or Buscionetto, olive plants. These fruits are medium sized, and oval shaped, and they have a high quality, fragrant aroma. These trees need another type of tree to pollinate them, and they make for an important addition to any growing farm. These olives have a strong skin resilience and yield oil that is has deep earthy flavor, and long stranding shelf life.
Giarraffa trees also grow on the acres of Asaro farm, and these are very large in size and come in both shades of black and green. These olives are known for their very fleshy pulp and strong taste that leaves a bit of bitterness and brine on the finish.
Additionally, the Asaro grounds cultivate and give life to the Cerasuola olive trees. These beautiful dark green olives have a very high level of productivity and yield plenty of oil consistently. The flavor of this oil is medium bodied with notes of almond, fruit, and a peppery finish. These flavors are often used in combination with other olive oils creating unique blends of flavor that are always smooth, vibrant, and authentic.
