The harvest

The harvest takes place between October the 10th and November the 25th which is the best harvest time when olives reach mid-ripening. In the long days that prolong the Sicilian summer, we still pick the olives manually and then we put them in low and well-ventilated containers in order to avoid them warming up. In this way we make sure the olives arrive undamaged and intact to our company mill. The elements that contribute to the success of the delicate production of a high quality extra virgin olive oil are the choice of the best time of picking, always respectful of the different olive varieties, the attention in the selection of the best fruits and the hard work of men and women.

During the olive harvest, the mill never stops. Day and night we manage the harvest that is conducted over several farms. Our rigorous planning is essential to make sure the picking crew is ready when needed and milling capacity is scheduled so that the olives don’t have to wait after being harvested. We personally check every olive to give you the best quality… The extraordinary… every day.

La milling

Once the bins arrive to our company’s mill, they are temporarily placed under a portico in order to guarantee the ventilation and to keep the olives unaltered. The olives get milled within 12 hours from the harvest always paying attention on the temperature and time of milling. Combining tradition and technology, the company's mill operates a gentle cold milling that exalts the smells and the flavors of our extra virgin olive oils.

UNIQUENESS SIGNED BY ARKE'

Packaging

Our extra virgin olive oils are stored in an environment able to preserve the natural genuineness where the sediments naturally settle down at the bottom of our steel silos. Thanks to the temperature monitoring (18°C) and the absence of light the olive oil remains so unaltered that it best expresses the character and the passion from which it was produced. Therefore, an efficient Product Tracking and Traceability System allows us to check each step of the entire production process, from the farm to the table. Every "man" of Arkè works in a way that each bottle brings the values ​at the basis of its production. A uniqueness signed manually by the red Arkè seal.
