To buy our olive oil Gold of the desert Blend is to buy the specific selection that our oil mill expert does. In order to do so he takes the first oil extracted of olives picked at the end of October and beginning of November. They come from the variety Arbequina, Hojiblanca and Picual. Our secret to obtain the maximum quality is to take special care of each step of the process.
To buy olive oil Gold of the Desert blend from the Tabernas Desert
Our olive grove has the luck and privilege of being in a virtual desert. It is the most dry area of Spain, and that help us a lot to keep external problems under control. For example the olive fly is nearly absent. All the dryness is not ideal for its reproduction and they choose more humid areas. This brings other benefits and we do not have to use chemicals to fight these issues. In this way we reduce expenses and we do not change the original taste of the oil. Our Customers know that and they take this into account when buying olive oil Gold of the Desert blend.
Since we nearly don’t have any rains we use the method of drip irrigation. This allow us to control with extreme precision the quantity of water that each tree receives during the year. Furthermore we are the ones that registered the patent for this system that it’s composed by a 50cm hose inserted deeply in the soil so that the humidity can reach the roots of the plant and reducing the evaporation and at the same time the waste of water up to the 30%. This patent received the award Eco-oliva in 2004 and the award for the technological development in 2003, the IX “ Accesit” at the award Andrés Núñez de Prado in 2007.
Being independent of the weather factor it’s a huge advantage for us, on the contrary of what happens practically in each oil mill, and in general in every fruit and vegetable cultivation.
