Where you'll be

The Farm is located on the hills of Montevago in the Western Coast of Agrigento. There we have an Old Country house situated in the midle of the olive grove, from where you can have a great view of the valley and of the ruins of the old town.
Very near to the country house we have the new bulding of the Olive crusher.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 26 reviews.

If you are looking to immerse yourself into real Sicilian lifestyle and local trade, then make sure to book your tour with Franc at his fantastic olive grove and family cottage. From the first minute to the last, Frank and his team had a true passion for their art of Extra Virgin Olive Oil production. He also made us feel like family, with a complete explanation of the history of the area and his family heritage. On top of all of this, Franc fed us like Kings!!! All of the food was locally sourced and prepared for us, with, of course, EV Olive Oil. We are still in awe of how unique and special our day was. We highly recommend all to enjoy this experience.

Nous avons passé un après-midi exceptionnel avec Francesco, sans conteste le moment le plus fort de notre séjour en Sicile. Francesco est passionné par son métier et sa terre, et a su nous transmettre cela avec talent, patience et gentillesse. Le déjeuner était fantastique, et incroyablement copieux. Un conseil ; jeûnez la veille ! L’huile d’olives est évidement excellente, seul un inconvénient : tout risque de nous paraître bien fade de retour en France... Heureusement, nous sommes repartis avec quelques réserves !

Absolutely amazing. The whole afternoon was unbelievable, from the great stories, the wonderful food, the education about olives and olive oil production to the tour of the oil extraction plant. I would go back and take multiple friends. I have a much greater respect for the olive oil producers now.

It's an amazing place, a really unique place to be in! You need to try it. It's well worth a visit . Francesco makes you feel like home. You will have a full immersion into the the oil production ,its history and the family history. He presents everything in a professional manner but most of all, in a passionate way. The place is wonderful, charming and well looked after . He receives the guests with a delicious ‘banquet’, prepared by Gina, an expert local chef. We tried a local food cooked with Amadeo oil, brusqueta, panelle, freshly baked bread with oil, cheese and much more. We visited the plantation, the ”frantoio” oil mill and saw all the processes of making the oil. Tried the oil and learned the right way to do it. I could continue sharing this unique experience with you but my advice is to go there and see it by your self. You will really enjoy it. Thanks, Francesco and Gina for sharing with me your love for it.

We spent a wonderful afternoon on the Amodeo's farm. Francesco was a very friendly and thoughtful host, made us feel home at his farmhouse. He gave very interesting insights of the olive industry and family production. As I read a recommendation somewhere: if you go to Sicily and do only one thing, go to visit Amodeo's farm. Thats totally true, Francesco's hospitality is unique and during the visit we got also a culinary experience, like no restaurants could give. Thanks Gina for the fantastic dishes and Francesco for sharing his knowledge and family heritage. Highly recommended!

Francesco Amodeo was a wonderful host. Upon arrival he brought us into his family farm house and fed us an incredible meal that we will never forget. He gave us a class on olive oil following the meal, then he showed us exactly how olives are harvested. We concluded at his families olive pressing facility. The taste of his olive oil was so delicious, I am spoiled forever. I left feeling like we made a new friend. We absolutely loved it, it was a highlight of our trip.
