AGRICULTURAL PRACTICES AND PHYTOSANITARY TREATMENTS
Despite not being officially certified, our olive grove is organically grown (no phytopharmaceutical products or synthetic fertilisers are used). A light pruning is made every two years to the trees.

HARVESTING
Mechanical harvesting is used to remove the olives using olive shakers and vibration harvesters. This technique avoids olive trees from being damaged. Olives are put into 25 kg plastic boxes and transported to a traditional olive oil mill. Olives lying on the ground are not used for olive oil production.

PROCESSING
Mechanical extraction at low temperatures (less than 30ºC) using traditional grindstone mills, followed by a two-phase continuous extraction.
Decanting process takes between 2 and 3 months.

CATEGORY
Extra Virgin Olive Oil - superior category olive oil obtained directly from olives and solely by mechanical means.
