OLIVE GROVE

We selected 1.600 hectares of olive groves in the Alentejo, where olive growing has taken place for generations. Part of this olive grove follows the traditional system, while the younger olive groves are farmed more intensively. Under the traditional system, many olive trees are over 100 years old, laid out with wide spaces between trees, which are large in size. In the intensive system, the new plantations present smaller planting distances resulting in medium-sized trees better adapted to mechanical harvesting. An Integrated Production system is applied, based on more sustainable growing practices and the use of auxiliary fauna to control olive pests and disease.
