Azienda Agricola Giorlando has its origin in Grammichele, a town with a characteristic hexagonal plan, and it extends partly in the plain of Catania (Sicily), affecting the countryside of Mineo and Palagonia, and partly on the plateau of Monti Iblei.
The Giorlando family has been cultivating, since 1950, more than 60 hectares of land including citrus groves, arable land and olive groves, first cultivated by grandfather Giuseppe and now by father Giacomo and his sons Katia and Giuseppe. Giacomo and Giuseppe take care of the agronomic aspect and manage the agricultural activity in the respect of the environment and the quality guaranteed along the whole chain, according to the principles of organic farming. Katia, on the other hand, deals with the entire chain of processing of the company’s raw material, marketing and sales.
The land has always been farmed organically but since 2015, infact, the company has been certified and subjected to the regulations of organic farming provided for in the PSR Sicily 2014/2020.
