Adopt an olive tree

How to adopt an Apulian olive tree

and participate in all activities


This project is aimed, in particular, to lovers of quality extra-virgin olive oil and eco-sustainable tourism, fascinated by the desire to rediscover the rural nature and the search for an authentic gastronomic experience. We offer all fans the opportunity to adopt one of our olive trees and taste and use the tree oil adopted.

We also give the opportunity to combine a weekend tied to the oil with the opportunity to get to know this main product of the Apulian cuisine, walk in the olive grove, learn about the plant adopted and breathe the scents of the countryside.

The project

Adopting an olive tree is a way to become virtual growers and allows anyone to witness the birth of a unique product such as extra virgin olive oil. The Masseria Cappuccini Farm offers lovers of extra virgin olive oil the possibility of adopting an olive tree (Olivastro and Leccino cultivars) and receiving a bottle of oil from the tree adopted at home.

With this initiative we want to help end promote the culture of high quality extra virgin olive oil, offering serious and in-depth information on production, on the methods of tasting and use. The project was created to directly involve consumers in the production process, allowing them to constantly monitor the life cycle of the tree adopted and to always be informed about its state of health and activity.

How to adopt an olive tree


Once adopted, a wooden plaque is affixed to the olive tree with the name of the adopter. During the year, the adopter receives information about the life cycle of the plant and its care and processing (flowering, pruning, tillage, olive ripening). During the adoption relationship, it is also offered the opportunity to visit their olive tree, participate in the olive harvest and attend all the processing steps to get the finished product.
