OPG Ipsa Marija with a successful tradition has located its native olive groves in Oprtalj, in the heart of Istria. The primary activity of this family farm is olive growing, ie the production of top-quality, award-winning extra virgin olive oil. Olive groves have 700 native trees of the varieties leccio, frantoio, istarske bjelice and crnice spread over 3 hectares. They give a fertility of 4800 kilograms a year, which gives about 700 liters of pure olive oil. Olive oils have a fine plant scent and taste and are decorated with scents of freshly cut grass, wildflowers and artichokes. The oils have a mild and dosed taste, with decent gentle balsamic tones, of which rosemary and mint predominate, and notes of chicory salad and green almonds. Olives are harvested by hand, grown and processed traditionally, their production is certified organic (without the addition of any pesticides), and the oil is cold pressed. You can buy and taste olive oils in specialized stores, and in direct agreement with the family farm.
