My name is Lucija Sakač and I’m running our organic family farm “OPG Sakač“.
Our farm was founded in 2006 by my mother Danica. My family is big, includes my parents Danica and Valent, my siblings Matej, Vid, Martina, Ana, Marija and me.
We planted our 5000 olive trees, of eight cultivars, together continuously throughout the years. We strongly believe that our olive trees love our shadows, meaning that is necessary to be present in the olive groves, to work and observe what is happening, so we could react at the right moment.
Harvest time is the peak of the year, time when my father, siblings, brother-in-law, and nephew are joined all together to pick the olives.
