The Olive Orchard
Our first olive trees were planted in 1994, today the total planted area covers 770 hectares / 1,903 acres with seven different varieties, namely Arbequina, Nabali, Barnea, Picual, Coratina, Arauco and Manzanilla.
The air in the region is dry and unpolluted, the soil is mainly composed of sand which does not hold water, avoiding excessive humidity which causes diseases, therefore there is no need for the use of pesticides.
Harvest begins around mid March and ends in June with an average crop of 19 tons of olives per acre which translates into approximately 1,400 tons of olive oil.
In 2005, we inaugurated our olive oil facility, incorporating the latest state of the art technology to process our rapidly increasing olive crop and to produce premium quality olive oil.
