Adopt an olive tree for a year and you'll receive all the produce from your tree.
Imagine dunking your bread in your own oil from your own tree 1,500 miles away on a hillside in Italy. It's delicious, it's good for the world and you get to show off to your friends.
With each adoption you'll receive an adoption certificate and booklet about your tree, a Spring Package containing all the extra virgin olive oil from your tree and an Autumn/Fall Package containing a set of three flavoured extra virgin olive oils.
From the website:
Jason Gibb and Cathy Rogers set up Nudo in 2005 after buying and restoring an abandoned 21 acre olive grove in Italy's Le Marche.
Their love of the Italian countryside inspired their now famous Adopt an olive tree programme which allows people all over the world to adopt an Italian olive tree and receive its oil. The programme involves a collaboration between a group of small scale, artisanal olive producers in Le Marche and Abruzzo. Each olive farmer keeps responsibility for the care of their grove, and all the olive oil goes into the Nudo adoption programme. In giving financial security to the olive farmers, the programme makes viable the traditional farming methods which, quite simply, produce the world’s best olive oil.
A love of simple natural food is the starting point for all Nudo products. They are all made from 100% natural, high quality, locally sourced ingredients. Why use artificial preservatives when olive oil is one of the best preservatives there is - and the most delicious?
Some other nuggets of the Nudo philosophy
- We ship by sea and land rather than air wherever possible
- For every adoption, we donate money to the 'Tree for all' tree-planting campaign
- We package our oil in tins to keep our oil fresher and because tin is better for the environment than glass
- We endorse and encourage any and all hugging of olive trees
