The olive grove is, for the most part, of traditional design, with a wide frame of plantation, dry
land and several "legs" per tree. On the other hand, young olive trees have been interspersed with
drip irrigation and only one foot per tree.
The collection system is partly manually and partly mechanized, by vibration.
The harvest begins in the first half of October, always looking for the maximum percentage of quality
oils. The date of collection of each variety is marked by the phenological state of the same.

The milling of the olives occurs within a few hours of harvesting. Taking hygiene into account in the
whole process. The different varieties are ground separately.
The packing machine is electronic weighing and manual handling.
