Print E-mail

Harvesting is done when the olive fruit has acquired a faint yellow to violet hue, depending on the degree of ripening.

It is carried in vegetable fiber sacks to the oil mill right after harvesting, where joint crushing is taking place.

Extra virgin olive oil is produced by cold pressed centrifugation and stored in stainless tanks through a closed circuit and then distributed .
