We're back in the U.S. now, had this "experience" slightly over two weeks ago, and we're STILL talking about it!

I was at first leery about this event, since it was a bit pricey for us, but believed all the good reviews here. As others have said, this really was a highlight of our trip.

We were at the farm/adorable farmhouse for six hours, during which we watched Francesco transform from a nicely presented salesman/teacher to a casual friend. Francesco presented a grand spread of Sicilian savory treats and explained the history behind each one. We learned about the earthquake in the region. We listened to 60s & 70s Italian LPs. Francesco provided a lesson about olive oil in the dining room/classroom where he even used a pointer. (We still chuckle about that!)

There was so much food that it was packed up, and we ate it for at least two more meals. It was delicious. We also left with a wonderful gift and the olives we picked (no problem getting in through US Customs) which are now in brine. I'm sure that once we decide to try them in a few months, it will again remind us of our wonder time at Amodeo's farm.

CAME AS CUSTOMERS LEFT AS FRIENDS
What a wonderful afternoon spent with Francesco of Amodeo’s Olive Farm. We could not have had a warmer welcome from such a gracious host. He opened his family’s country home and presented us with multiple courses of homemade dishes. We had everything from sun dried tomatoes, olives, cheese and caponata to grilled sausage and pasta of course. We then took a walk through the olive grove where Francesco educated us on the farming and harvesting of olives. We even got to do a little manual labor first collecting olives by hand, as originally done, and then using the electric rake, which is today’s technique. This was followed by a blind olive oil tasting…how unique! It certainly helped develop our palates and gave us a far better understanding of what to look for when purchasing olive oil.

Amodeo’s EVOO is a staple in our home so how could we not come visit on our recent trip to Sicily. Such a memorable day for us and one experience we recommend you not miss while in Sicily. Grazie mille Francesco!

Amazing host, wonderful experience!

It has been 3 weeks since I returned from a wonderful month in Europe. Upon my return people have been asking me for my favorite part and without a doubt, the time I spent at AMODEO’S is right there at the top of the list.
With Covid tempering the tourist crowds, my girlfriend & I found ourselves being treated like royalty by Frank Amodeo. Frank & his family own the farm & make it a practice to do the tours.
This is so much more than a tour though. This is someone welcoming you into their family; sharing stories, recipes, delicious food, great wine and most of all OLIVES!! Who knew there could be so much to learn about the proper way to taste olive oil? I will treasure the memories shared that day & can’t thank the AMODEO’S enough for their hospitality.

Just do it
Incredible experience! You CANNOT visit Sicily and not go visit Amodeo’s farm. A cultural experience where tradition, elegance and happiness merge to bring you something you will remember. Frank was a wonderful host, teaching with passion and details the art of producing the finest Olive Oil and how to fully enjoy it.
Sincerely, try this. You will be charmed

Absolutely amazing experience
We had a great time with Francesco.
He explained everything you need to know about olive farming, shared some really nice photos with us which he took during our visit and prepared the best lunch you could imagine. An absolute recommendation if you’re in Sicily. Thanks a lot for the hospitality!

Amazing Experience!

Where to begin ... what an amazing experience we had here at Amodeo's Farm learning all that there is to know about premium quality extra virgin olive oil. Frank was a fantastic host who fed us silly then had the patience to show us around and pass on his expertise. Phenomenal experience to be done with both friends and family alike. Couldn't recommend this more!

Top day in Sicily
Aug 2020 • Couples
I go to Sicily often with my Sicilian husband and this was one of the best days we ever spent together there. We learned a lot, ate like kings, and enjoyed a magnificent sunset in the most picturesque setting. I will bring all my American family here when I can!

A well oiled experience
Oct 2020 • Solo
The day on the farm with Frank and Spike was just brilliant! When we arrived Frank said we should think of the farm as home and he did everything to make us feel welcome and comfortable! The food and Sicilian delicacies were a delicious introduction to the day! The provenance of everything we ate was shared and celebrated - Frank is rightfully very proud of his wonderful country and local area! The views from the farm were stunning and the information about the history of the area and the olive oil was so detailed and thorough! We are mini experts now and will be looking for Nocellara for many years to come. Thanks! If you are close to Menfi you really should do this day with Frank! Unforgettable 👍

I cannot recommend this experience higher. Frank was great and welcoming and very knowledgeable. The lunch provided was amazing and the tour and tasting of olive oil was great, will be looking at olive oil differently from now on!
