Our organic oil manufacture
The manufacture of organic oil is more than a philosophy! Together with renouncing herbicides, insecticides and artificial fertilisers, no chemical synthetic means for pest and disease control are used because these accumulate to a large extent particularly in olive oil. Our organic agriculture relies on a natural series of events. Pests are controlled mechanically or by using natural predator. We use special types of grass and plants for nutritional supplementation of the soil and for pest control. The 600 olive trees we currently have grow in a biologically active soil with millions of microorganisms. The creation and preservation of natural soil conditions are crucial. In the spring and summer, a carpet of herbs, grasses and flowers forms in between the rows of olive trees. This diversity of varieties feeds the soil with the necessary nutrients and increases the resistance of the olive trees against pests and diseases. The outlay for caring for and monitoring the olive groves in this way is far greater than with conventional cultivation, however there are no harmful substances in our oil and you get a healthy, valuable aliment. “Organic”, done properly, can only be manufactured in small-scale production”. Our oil is bio-certified and monitored by the national authority in charge, CBPAE. We complement the strict conditions and controls by our own analyses, in cooperation with well-known laboratories.
