The story of
Cordovan olive growers since 1876. Currently, we are the 6th generation dedicated to the cultivation of olive groves.
We continue to bet on the conservation of our traditional olive grove. We are proud to continue caring for our centenary olive trees, which are already part of an unrepeatable natural and cultural heritage.
Since 2020 we have been making and packaging extra virgin olive oil from our olive trees only. Without mixing with olives or oils from other producers or oil mills.
It is an early harvest premium oil. Only from the aerial part, of the Hojiblanca variety. Very balanced and with the absence of defects. High content in polyphenols (natural antioxidants)
Since long before we started to make EVOO, (actually since we started this activity more than 145 years ago), we have always had a very strong commitment to the conservation of biodiversity and nature. Even without being aware of it. And of the importance that currently supposes to make a sustainable management to conserve the natural habitat.
Apart from the olive grove, from the beginning we have had other complementary activities. Like livestock (Sheep and Goats). And also beekeeping.
That is why we never use herbicides. We have always used plant covers, both to feed livestock (sheep, goats, bees), as well as to provide fertilizer to the soil. And all this even long before knowing the importance of the use of plant covers or the irreparable damage to flora and fauna caused by the use of herbicidas o plaguicides.
In summary, we apply the current techniques and means, but to make a management of the olive grove as sustainable as possible and as similar to how our ancestors did back in 1876. So that we can leave our olive trees to the next generations in the best possible conditions and that they can enjoy an EVOO and an exceptional natural environment.
