Aside from olives and olive oil production, the farm also grows citrus fruits, particularly oranges and a variety of clementines called “mandaranci”. They are typical products of the Fondi plain and are farmed in the genuine land of San Magno and Settecannelle areas.
In addition to this, other varieties farmed are figs, prickly pears, carobs and persimmons.
With the fruit we pick we produce genuine home-made jams and marmalades that you will taste during your stay at the Casale.
