COMPANY HISTORY
The Mazzi Mirella farm enterprise was established in 2007. It consists of land at an average height of 400 metres above sea level, situated in the municipalities of Ischia di Castro and Farnese, halfway between Lake Bolsena and the Tyrrhenian Sea. The main objective was to restore old olive groves that had been abandoned. These were almost entirely trees of the Canino variety, native to the area. The work involved reclaiming 1,455 trees, as well as adding another 700 Canino saplings, planted in the year 2000. Olive cultivation is the company’s main business, but it also grows vines, wild fennel, Roman mint and saffron.

TYPE OF COMPANY
The Mazzi Mirella farm enterprise is a family business managed with the help and support of three children. Since 2008, the company has adopted the method of organic farming, and produces a monovariety oil certified as CANINO PDO ORGANIC OIL.

THE TERRITORY
Much of the land on the Mazzi Mirella farm is volcanic in origin, formed after the eruption of the volcano on the current site of Lake Bolsena. The area is mainly hilly, ranging from 200 to 500 metres above sea level, and is crisscrossed by various rivers and streams that have eroded the hillsides to form little ravines.

There are various cultural and natural attractions nearby. In the municipality of Ischia di Castro, you can visit the ruins of the ancient city of Castro and the Civic Museum, which houses exhibits from the Eneolithic Age to the Renaissance.
Sites of natural interest include the Lamone Nature Reserve in the municipality of Farnese, where you can admire many varieties of orchid.
