|About||At Selvanuova we are farming for nature conservation. Selvanuova is an organic and wildlife-friendly farm located near Alta Murgia National Park, Italy. Buy our extravirgin olive oil: you will help us contributing to biodiversity.|
A farm composed of several plots covering 5 hectares in Puglia, near Alta Murgia National Park, southern Italy.
We have about 1,000 olive trees, mostly of a local variety called Coratina, renowned for its high antioxidant content.
Since May 2016, we take care of these olive groves, which have been in our family for two generations, thereby continuing the family tradition of farming.
As we are trained in biology and agronomy, converting the land to organic farming seemed a natural way to proceed.
For us, Selvanuova means a new way of farming trees, adopting practices consistent with organic farming and applying known principles of ecology.
While our olive groves are already dotted with fig trees, almond trees and other fruit trees, we are planting native trees for greater diversity.
We are also contributing to wildlife conservation by creating habitats for wild animals and plants, adding nesting boxes for birds and bat houses for insect control.
As per EU standards, the conversion period to organic farming will take 3 years, after which our products will be officially certified as organic.
