The cultivation

As all ancient olive groves, most of our olive trees are wild trees, which were grafted in order to improve their resistance to drought and diseases.

In order to produce a good quality olive oil, an olive tree must be healthy and therefore, it requires the following conditions: a dedicated producer, lots of sun and some rain, a fertile and well drained soil, a mountainous terrain, etc. The producer must wait for the perfect ripening of the fruits before harvesting as well as ensure that no chemicals are present at any stage of the product elaboration.
