The special gift idea:

Adopt an olive-tree at an organic farm and get your own extra virgin olive oil from Umbria at the border to Tuscany, Italy

Make an extraordinary present and help nature

The olive tree is one of the oldest cultivated plants of humanity. Since antique times it is a symbol for peace, longevity, health and strength. A mythological tree. Greek mythology wants it that goddess Athena herself gave it as a present to mankind.

Could there be something more beautiful than giving such a truly divine present to those we love and care for ? The adoption of an olive tree is a gift of high symbolical value. It shows that you know what really matters in life.

Make a special present: Make a La Rogaia Olive Tree Gift Package, for one year or for a whole life. A wonderful present for Christmas, for a wedding or for the birth of a child.

They evoke thoughts of tree guardians or protecting spirits. Indeed each stele “protects” the small olive tree in the first years of its life, until the tree rises above it and finally the sculpture finds shelter in its shadow.

“La Rogaia Adopt An Olive Tree Project” and your contribution to the protection of environment
These are our two objectives:

Some of the olive trees at La Rogaia are elder than 100 years.
1. Preserve ancient cultural landscapes
The maintenance of olive trees and the olive harvest on the impassable steep slopes in Umbria and Tuscany are costly and labour intensive. This has caused the abandonment of vast stretches of formerly cultivated olive groves. Ancient groves used to be set up on terraces, which were supported by dry stone walls in order to prevent erosion. These walls have been built by the olive farmers during centuries of hard work and have become a characteristic landmark of Umbria and Tuscany. Unfortunately a big part of these walls, which are also home to many small animals, are more and more threatened by decay. An important part of our work consists in fighting against this decay in order to preserve this natural habitat. This even might help to attract more and new species of small animals. In February and March 2008 we rebuilt several hundred meters of dry stone walls to terrace our olive groves. This is an ancient way to prevent erosion and to keep the preciuos water.


Rebuilding ancient stone walls
2. Preserve ancient trees and maintain naturally grown environments
In the course of the last decades some of the ancient olive groves around La Rogaia have been overgrown by Mediterranean macchia, a typical low woodland with broom, wild roses, laurel, holm oaks and many other trees and shrubs. This has formed a multitude of wonderful new microenvironments. The clearing of this Mediterranean macchia, with the objective to regain a maximum production of olive oil, would cause unjustifiable ecological damage. Therefore it is our aim to make the olive trees accessible again and to give them the care they need for surviving and thriving without destroying the existing biodiversity.


With a La Rogaia olive tree adoption you can actively contribute to preserve and protect this unique natural habitat.

La Rogaia extravergine olive oil from Umbria


La Rogaia extra vergine olive oil from umbria

Olive oil from Umbria is among the most precious in Italy and worldwide. On the hills of Umbria and Tuscany matures an oil with sophisticated nutty flavours and very low acidity.

The health benefit of olive oil is based on its high and equilibrated content of poly unsaturated fatty acids, especially oleic acid. Linolenic acid is present in the olive oil in the same proportion as we find it in mother´s milk, and indeed in Italy olive oil is considered an ideal dietary supplement for small children. Olive oil is among the most easily digestible oils and disposes of a multitude of important vitamins and trace elements, which make it one of the healthiest oils to be found.

At La Rogaia the olive trees (and of course all the other plants) are cultivated according to the standards of organic farming, certified by the ICEA (Istituto per la certificazione etica e ambientale). The olives are carefully picked by hand. We only offer olive oil from the first pressing, exclusively cold pressed by mechanical means, which corresponds to the highest quality standards.
