Our history started in 1819 when Consalvo Ceci purchased first farm land in Andria. For the next 200 years, from father to son, Ceci family continued to work and cultivate crops with passion.
Our big change happened about 20 years ago when Consalvo Ceci, great-great-grandson, has decided to change whole farm land into organic. At the time, practice of organic farming was very little known therefore it was considered as a risky step from other fellow farmers. But he insisted.
Now in 2020, we have the biggest number of organic farmers in Puglia, and we became one of the pioneer organic farmers.
From 2015, Torre Grande was founded by Riccardo Ceci, Umberto Maria Ceci and Federico Ceci; three cousins who believed in the future of family farm business, our beautiful Puglia and our products. Currently, our farm is operated mainly by Riccardo and his partner Yurie Adachi who is also an olive oil sommelier, for olive oil project.
