PRODUCTION

Because agriculture has to be organic

From a consumers’ point of view, organic farming creates  food and drink of a high quality, all produced naturally without the use of any chemical products.

When you buy organic produce you are supporting a sector that promotes other advantages too, such as taking care of the environment,  the rise of biodiversity, the welfare of livestock and rural development.

The absorbent polyphenols provide the oil with a balance of nutritional, healthy qualities as well as sensory characteristics, due in particular to: 

The OLEUROPEIN it's very important, from a nutritional point of view, because it has natural antioxidant properties, useful in the prevention of heart disease and tumours;

 Near the murmuring in the grain fields,

of the waves of wind in the oat-stalks,

the olive three

with its silver covered mas,

severe in its lines,

in its twisted heard in the earth:

the graceful olives

polished by the hands

witch made the dove and the oceanic snail:

green, innumerable, immaculate

nipples of nature

  And there in the dry olive groves,

where alone the blue sky

with cicadas and the hard earth exist,

there the prodigy,

the perfect capsules of the olives

filling with their constellations the foliage:

then later the bowls, the miracle,

the olive oil.

  

I love the homelands of olive oil,

the olive groves       

It’s not only wine that sings

Olive oil sings too

It lives in us with its ripe light

and among the good things of earth

I assimilate Olive Oil

your ever-flowing peace,

your green essence,

your heaped-up treasure

which descends in streams from

the olive tree.
