Organic Olive Oil

The growth of the olive trees is conducted with the utmost respect for the established procedures of organic production, foreseen by the European and American legislation. This production includes the use of farming techniques that respect the natural life cycles and reduce environmental impact. It also leads to several slow and expensive procedures, mainly the maintenance of the fertilization of the soils and the respect for phytosanitary and fertilization principles; it is prohibited the use of chemical synthesis products.

Sharing the commitment of the country in renewable energy, it is also our intention, on the short term, to invest in solar and wind power in order to become the farm production completely independent in terms of energy.
