Azienda Agricola Piras

Francesco Piras's farm was born in the early nineties, and is family-run business which mainly employs family members and a staff that has been permanently working there for over ten years. The company leads and cultivates sixty acres of olive groves in the countryside of Alghero, of which 20 hectares of land (planted in 2006) are owned and the remainder is rented from local families, with five-year or ten-year agreements.
The prevailing variety of olives in the fields is the Bosana, a variety widespread in northern Sardinia thanks to its productivity and adaptability; This varietal has no particular sensitivity to major pests, has solid resistance to heat and drought periods, and has its own average fertility, therefore taking advantage of the pollinators present in fields such as la Nera di Gonnos (or Tonda di Cagliari) , the Pizz'e carroga , and la Nera di Oliena (or Nera di Villacidro or Paschixedda). The transformation of the olives takes place at the mill company.
