Villaggio Verde is a Worcestershire-based Olive tree specialist grower which supplies a selection of hand-crafted olive wood products including bowls, cutting boards, coasters, spoons and pestle and mortars.
The company has its our own Mediterranean farmland, where it grows and nurtures olive trees, as well as an olive tree nursery in the UK. It says: ‘Olive wood is the perfect kitchen item or gift. It is non-porous (unlike many other woods) so it does not stain or attract bacteria and is very hard so difficult to mark.’
