Especially Puglia was born of Founder Michele Iadarola’s desire to introduce the rich culinary traditions of his native Puglia to fellow food enthusiasts through an international CSA. Especially Puglia brings single-source extra virgin olive oil and artisanal pantry products from Puglia’s farms to your table.
Located on the sunny southern coast of Italy, Puglia is one of the country’s most fertile regions. It is celebrated for the quality and abundance of its olive trees and is known throughout the Mediterranean for the variety of its produce and its robust local cuisine.
At Especially Puglia, we source the finest extra virgin olive oils from independent, organic farms, and we curate artisanal foods crafted using Pugliese traditions. By emphasizing sustainable practices, small-batch production and short, transparent supply chains, we guarantee the freshest, most authentic taste of Puglia.
Especially Puglia encourages customers to get to know their farmers and producers. We help our customers learn how their food is grown, made, and packaged, and – most importantly – to appreciate the gastronomic paradise of the region.
