Land of Arneo, which is the rural heart of Salento, is the cornerstone of this company’s production, the place where olive oil is born.

A magic place, suspended between land and sea, cradle of the mediterranean landscape, increasingly valued for the many resources it offers. A slice of heaven, where nature is served to the table: “the golden liquid”, as Homer used to call it, is permeated with the Puglia soil’s taste.

La Cornula isn’t a simple denomination, but a symbol for the land. The word comes from Lecce’s dialect and is used to name the carob tree, which is abundant in Salento and exactly has the shape of a corn. A typical taste, a superstitious shape and a fertile soil: these are the ingredients which made the La Cornula’s trees grow up, and the whole family with them.

Farm company La Cornula represents tradition innovating throughout centuries, as you can see through their millstones and old mills, which tell the respect and dedication of Puglia people to their homeland.
