le Olivastre was founded in 2014 on the initiative of three women who decided to reclaim a century-old olive grove, left untended, on the hills of Lake Trasimeno in Umbria. The idea quickly turned into a broader project: to reclaim unfarmed or untended land, protect and promote the agricultural landscape, give due value to the benefits of farm and food.
Since 2020 the Association has involved and been supported by this innovative project of micro, home and itinerant enterprise, to showcase the EVO oil of the Trasimeno area in the most diverse recipes: le Olivastre Cooking with olive oil.
Cooking with olive oil
A woman’s touch in the kitchen, love for the land and its seasonal products and a passion for olive oil are the three ingredients of our project.
We choose the best raw materials from the farms in the Trasimeno area and we use them to create simple, tasty and genuine dishes.
