On the estate the Scollo company is like a journey round Sicily and its oil. The contents are innovative and contemporary but consistent with the ritual historical interpretation of farming and techniques of of olive production which elsewhere have almost been forgotten. The Scollo company’s project is patient and meticulous research, never rushed, regarding both the past and the future. On the one hand it represents a deep bond with the old Sicilian traditions, with the indigenous varieties: Moresca and Tonda Iblea. On the other hand the continuing attention to the optimization of production processes makes it possible to ensure the highest quality oil and the protection of the territory. Our products derive exclusively from organic crops and production systems, which is another step in the direction of “healthy eating” and of quality associated with maximum attention to the environment. The company has chosen to produce only high quality organic olive oil, adhering to the BIO specification, adopting traditional cultivation techniques without the use of any chemicals and with the utmost respect for the environment. In addition, as suggested by the Kyoto Protocol, which recognizes the contribution that can be made by agriculture, it was decided to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by limiting the working of the soil and by adopting agricultural practices which promote carbon retention in biomass and soils. Harrowing the soil is gradually being letting the grass grow in autumn and this will then become green manure. The plant residues remain on the soil, providing organic matter, shading the ground, hindering the growth of weeds and promoting the infiltration of rainwater into the ground by drastically reducing surface erosion.
