Our family has been dedicated to agriculture since the early 1900s when our ancestor Salvatore began to lead an olive grove in the countryside between Andria and Cerignola. He called his olives golden bells. From those golden bells our oil from native cultivars: the robust Coratina, the fine Peranzana and the delicate Ogliarola that bears his destiny in its name.
Today the Cusmai family are the brothers Nicola, Riccardo and Gianfranco, Maria and Salvatore (grandson of that Salvatore), Nunzia and Sabino, the indispensable grandmother Grazia (pictured) and all the grandchildren who later came.
From extra virgin olive oil to tomato processing, from table olives to in oil we have opened up over the years to new products, to new challenges, guided by a strong sense of tradition – always safeguarded by the presence of grandmother Grazia – and from a desire to innovate in recipes and compositions, while maintaining three fixed principles: the absolute quality of the raw materials, their seasonality and the simplicity of the recipes.
Each Cusmai product has a simple story to tell. From seed to fruit, from pruning to fertilization, from the choice of fields to harvesting to processing, we work to keep its natural flavor intact to give you a taste of this happy land, Puglia, a grace received with every taste.
