The Licia Guccione Farm is located in Mazzarino, a countryside area near Caltanissetta, in the Sicilian hinterland.
The farm’s land, the Floresta Feud, was bought from the heirs of a blazoned Spanish family in 1860, at that time, extended for a thousand or so hectares.
Since then, the Firm passed on from dad to son, along with the shared love for this angle of peaceful and untouched Sicilian countryside, surrounded by many-colored hills, olive trees, almond trees and in which stands the Formaggio Mount, with its particular pyramidal shape, scene of unforgettable sunset.
In this breathtaking scenery, we are involved to preserve the rural heritage of 5 generations of farmers.
Our products are the result of an accurate production process that aspire to look after genuineness without using pesticides, weed killers and other toxic substances. We immerse ourselves in a specific Mission: organic first of all.
This Mission stems from our necessity to offer products, as Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Almonds, that could preserve the original flavors of the past, but at the same time, still respect the environment, as well as sustainability and the integrity of our fields, from whom everything arises.
I’m Licia Guccione, the actual owner and the last one of my family that still believe in the farm.
Before I throw myself headlong in this new green adventure, I was a hospitality entrepreneur. In 2000, I turned upside down my life and dedicated everything I had to this farm, that today, it’s focused on organic production of olives and almonds.
I’m actually engaged, firsthand, to endorse the development of the female entrepreneurship through the role of vice-president that I’m holding in Confagricoltura Donna Sicilia (A part of the General Confederation of Italian Agriculture).
