Bona Furtuna is a harmonious 350-hectare organic farm that celebrates premium, organic fare to enrich biodiversity, promote sustainable farming and preserve heritage food. We source all of our herbs, tomatoes, and olives directly from La Furtuna Estate. Our pastas and salts are produced in collaboration with other sustainable, organic Sicilian producers. Our Biscotti, Balsamic Vinegars and Porcini Mushrooms are produced in collaboration with other sustainable Italian producers.
What other producers do you work with?

What is the difference between California, Spain and Italian Olive Oil?
Terroir will be a big factor here depending on soil and climate. One of the main differences is the varietal of olive. California has mission olives, of which the main varieties used are Spanish and Greek. Most California olive oil uses Arbequina (Spain), Arbosana (Spain), and Koroneiki (Greek) olives, while some use Italian varieties of Frantoio and Leccino. Spain is known for being the largest olive oil producing state in the world, mainly due to the types of olives that can be grown in high density groves. In addition to the two varieties above they are known for Picqual (which makes up about 25% of all olive oil production in the world) and Hojiblanca. These olives all tend to be a bit smaller than other varieties. Italians have a multitude of different olives that are different depending on the region. The main ones include Frantoio, Leccino, Coratina, Itrana, & Nocellara del Belice. These tend to vary in pungency when making olive oil, ranging from delicate to robust. At Bona Furtuna we use heirloom organic Sicilian olive varietals that can’t be found anywhere else in the world. These varietals include Biancolilla Centinara, Tonda Iblea, Cerasuola, and Passulunara.
Can I freeze olive oil?
We do not recommend freezing olive oil. Freezing oils can cause the valuable fats to rupture, creating unwanted flavors when thawed. Refrigeration is acceptable but generally not necessary.

How long will my product last?
Product shelf life depends on the product but you can expect a shelf life of at least nine months, if not more, depending on the product. All products have a best by date on the packaging.
What do we do as a company to help protect bee populations?
As an organic farm, we are committed to natural pest management practices that consider all living organisms on the farm. Pesticide and herbicide usage in agricultural practices is extremely harmful to bee populations, as bees can lose their way back to hives more easily, become weak and sick, and eventually lead to colony collapse.
