The harvest begins in october and ends in the middle of winter. Thanks to fresh nights, Arbequine olive can mature.

Our manufacturing follows several steps. First, the sorting of leaves and fruits to select the best of the harvest. Then the crushing, to knead and pound fruits. Pulp and kernel are then mixed together by means of a granite grindstone.
