Balance, harmony and respect.
The Azienda Agricola Olivero Claudio has historical roots. Claudio, born into the Olivero family who had been breeding Piedmontese cattle for generations, was introduced to farming at a very early age. Growing up in tune with the rhythm of nature, he developed a profound respect for working the land according to the traditional methods of his ancestors. Gradually he started introducing innovative and sustainable techniques which ultimately lead him to completely transform the family farm.
In 2000 he decides to stop breeding cattle and to start rearing laying hens for egg production according to the principles of organic agriculture which guarantees the animal’s well-being and allows them great freedom. He also decides to start on-farm organic feed production for his hens, ensuring complete control and the highest standard of feed quality. This results in a transparent production model within a closed loop system (recycling all organic matter back to the soil), allowing for the creation of a clear and open relationship with consumers, offering them a secure product of indisputable quality.
According to Claudio’s view on agriculture, craftsmanship and modernisation need to go hand in hand in order to obtain wholesome and tasty food.
Satisfied by the results so far, the challenge remains to continue working according to the same ethical organic farming principles.
Organic farming is our philosophy of life.
The farm produces and commercializes organic eggs and therefore Claudio Olivero has chosen to implement a self-sufficient closed loop system. This means that the hens are closely monitored and cared for from birth, they are free to roam freely and their feed is organically grown on the farm without the use of pesticides.
The nutrition of the hens is closely monitored and consists of a wholesome and balanced diet, especially designed together with the farm vet. Furthermore, the hens themselves play a large part in the fertilization process. Their manure is used as an organic fertilizer along with the skilful rotation of the crops in order to obtain the natural self-fertilization of the land. The farm makes use of solar panels for the production of sustainable energy and keeps a constant focus on the environment using recycled packaging materials where possible.
The objective is to produce organic eggs of the highest quality while preserving a balanced ecosystem in which the animals can live peacefully according to their nature. Healthy hens lay good quality eggs with high nutritional value and with great taste capable of satisfying even the most demanding clients.
The ancient rural farming recipe hasn’t changed.
We grow, we nurture and we produce with great care and passion.
The farm produces genuine natural ingredients of the highest quality and also offers egg products for daily use or for artisans active in the culinary field: organic pasteurized egg products (egg yolk, egg white and whole egg), cereals, legumes, hazelnuts and buckwheat. Claudio Olivero’s creativity has given birth to innovative products such as the Saracetti biscuits, rustic biscuits with toasted hazelnuts and buckwheat.
Our crowning jewel is Sanbay, a delicious organic zabaglione made of egg yolk, Passito wine from Sicily and cane sugar. A creamy dessert which can be enjoyed pure or in combination with whipped cream, biscuits, ice cream or fresh fruit salad. It can also be used to enrich cakes and a variety of recipes.
It is impossible not to mention the line & hemp seed eggs. They are one of a kind, delicious and innovative, fruit of careful research in order to obtain an even better taste and rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, precious allies of our health.
