Zero Extra Virgin Olive Oil is produced from Tenuta Marmorelle’s 600 year old olive trees by the Carlucci family on their farm, Tenuta Marmorelle, in Puglia, southern Italy. It is a single estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil using a mixture of olives, Cellina di Nardo, Ogliarola and Lecchino Olives. It’s this mixture of olives that gives it’s green tasting tones and slight peppery aftertaste. The olives trees are lovingly looked after all year round preparing for the harvest in late October early November. The olives are harvested directly from the trees, onto nets to ensure they never touch the ground and then taken to the olive press and cold pressed within 6 hours to ensure the best quality olive oil. The oil is left to rest in steel containers where the sediment fall to the bottom and the oil stays at the top. The oil is not filtered to ensure all the health benefits are retained. Before bottling, the oil is tested for accidity to make sure that it is within the boundaries to be classifed extra virgin.
The oil is called Zero as there are no additives.
100% natural and unfiltered.

At the Dorset Meat Company, we work with 20 small, family-run farms in Dorset and Wiltshire that all work to produce ethically reared, nutritious meat, in a natural growing environment, in harmony with nature. Animals that have been allowed to grow at a natural pace and have not been rushed.
100% Grass Fed
Our ruminant animals enjoy a diet of 100%, pure, natural grass. Which is all they ever eat.
Our local countryside is rich in grassland. “Partly real, partly dream country” is how Thomas Hardy described Dorset. Over 40% of the county is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the steep ridges and chalk valleys lending the landscape a rugged beauty. Dotted around the Blackmore Vale, small farms raise traditional cattle breeds like Herefords, Aberdeen Angus and Ruby Reds. The areas of clay soil are rich in grass, wildflowers, clover and legumes, the principal food source for sheep and cattle for centuries. It is these natural environments, rich in essential vitamins and minerals, that help to support a wide range of wildlife and insects as an essential element of a vibrant, thriving ecology.
Nature in balance.
