Cooperativa Isola Di Borgonovo was founded in 2005 but was fundamentally restructured in 2014, when the new board of directors relaunched the historic Cooperative with enthusiasm and a desire for innovation. Thanks to the fundamental contribution of the members, it has been possible to upgrade the olive oil mill allowing the production and sale of Extra-Virgin Olive Oil. One of the Cooperative's fundamental objectives is the rehabilitation of the land (hazelnut and olive groves) with a view to promoting local products and our farming culture.

'Adopt an olive tree' project


In Liguria, with great passion, dedication and hard work, generations of farmers have built the typical dry stone walls on the slopes of the Ligurian hills to support olive plantations, giving rise to a veritable 'oil civilisation' that is now known throughout the world, thanks not least to the establishment of the Mediterranean Diet as a healthy, balanced diet. etc. It is no exaggeration to say that the beauty and diversity of the environments and locations in very difficult orographic conditions make the Ligurian olive-growing landscape unique in the world! Today, unfortunately, many olive groves in our area of Levante Ligure are no longer cultivated.

One of the main objectives of our Cooperative is to protect the rural territory by promoting and supporting the recovery of abandoned olive groves. We restored (almost entirely with our own financial resources) an olive grove on the Lavagna hills (abandoned for 10 years) of about 8000 square metres. There are many requests for the management of olive groves in the Tigullio region, but the scarce financial support from the various public bodies does not currently allow us to respond to all of them. The 'adopt an olive tree' initiative seems to us to be a good starting point for raising awareness of this somewhat forgotten area, which is in some respects hostile yet offers an incomparable charm!

In this way, you too will contribute, together with the Cooperative, to the enhancement of this land, its farming culture and the authenticity of its products. This could be an original gift idea for your partner, for a grandparent, for a friend or for a newly born child; the adoption certificate will bear his or her name!

Our services

Thanks to the olive oil mill, we offer an olive milling service with water-saving 3-phase continuous machinery, with six temperature-controlled malaxers and the capacity to process up to 15 qt of olives per hour. The olive milling season normally begins in October and lasts until December. Unfortunately, the length of the season depends on many factors such as the climate, the oil fruit fly, etc. The 2019 season, for example, will be remembered as one of the worst in recent decades in Liguria in terms of olive production.

La crema di nocciole del Tigullio è veramente una specialità tipica, realizzata con le nocciole locali della Valle Sturla, varietà "Nocciola Misto Chiavari", dalle forme disomogenee e un po' allungate, di difficile lavorazione rispetto a quelle piemontesi. Una prelibatezza, un prodotto di pregio! Eccezionale.
