Benvenuti! OliveNation is your personal connection to many of the small, traditional farmers in Italy and around the world who produce some of the finest olive oils, pastas, coffee, vinegars, sea salts and other pantry items. We invite you to share these essential ingredients and experience the true taste of Italy and more.
Our family estate lies just outside of Venarotta, in the beautiful yet relatively untouristed Marche region of Italy. For us, the best part of being home is sitting down for hours at the kitchen table: talking, laughing, arguing... while savoring exquisite meals created with everyday simple ingredients directly from the land. Sometimes it’s in our kitchen but as many times it’s at our neighbor’s.
We like our food fresh, traditional and “squisito”! Like many Italian families, we and our neighbors produce small quantities of our own olive oil, vinegar, wine, sausages and cheeses each year. And like other Italian farmers—even those whose “farm” is just a tiny plot of tomatoes and eggplant—we are very proud of what we produce. We care a lot about “how good” and little about “how much” – and we love to share!
