The story of our olive oil mill is one of regeneration. The mill is situated in the small settlement of Baredine in Istria, and was a working mill up to 1943, after which it lay idle for half a century. Then, after fifty years, it occurred to us that we could revive our family’s traditional business in our area, albeit in a completely modern way.
So, out of love for the olives and olive oil, our family professionally and responsibly set up the foundations of a new, modern Istrian olive-growing and milling operation.
In the old mill, the big grinding stone was turned by a horse. Long-standing traditions about olive oil production were the norm when we started. The Agro-Millo Olive Mill set new standards and revolutionized production by including new technologies for olive processing, new principles for harvesting, same-day milling, and storage in special stainless steel barrels until our high-quality extra virgin olive oil is bottled. Over the years we have increased the capacity of the mill and greatly extended our olive groves.The mill is certified for the production of organic olive oil.
