The Lupić family farm from Bale started olive growing by the planting the first olives in the year 2000. The idea was to revive an old tradition, so they started with the restoration of old neglected olive groves. Since then, 11 hectares of land have been cleaned, of which 7 hectares of new olive groves have been planted or 1400 olive trees of the following autochthonous varieties: buža, puntoža, rožinjola, negrolina, from which high-quality oils are produced. The high-quality extra virgin olive oil has been acknowledged by numerous awards since the very beginning, so the Lupić family farm is included in the eno-gastro guide through Istria “ISTRA GOURMET”, as well as in the guide of the world´s best extra vergine olive oils “FLOS OLEI”.
