Our Commitments

Jaén: land of the traditional olive grove with the Picual variety

We consciously took the decision to continue cultivating exclusively the Picual variety in traditional cultivation method (as opposed to more massive, modern and mechanised practices).

Although this supposes more costs (both fixed and variable), honouring our origin is for us a source of pride but also responsibility, which we fully assume day after day, harvest campaign year after year.

Scientific research for plant health

We contribute to the scientific research both for plant health and best practices towards more sustainable olive trees cultivation. That is why we make our farm available for research on pests, diseases and other agricultural practices for continuous improvement.

Participation to the activities of the Province of Jaén

Proud of our origin and of our Andalusian and Spanish tradition, we actively participate to various manifestations of our Province, because we believe it is our commitment to support the community and the local economy, like any initiative that promotes quality and excellence as well as the conservation of our cultural heritage.
