About Olivar de Segura:
In 1985 a group of farmers from the area of Génave came up with the idea of ecologically farming olives. The idea was that the benefits of doing so would not only mean producing healthier olives, but at the same time they would be protecting the environment. By doing so, from this quality over quantity philosophy came the first ecologically produced olive oil in Spain, which was 100% pesticide-free, and free from all chemical fertilizers, ensuring the purity and quality of the olive oil from the very first drop.
The real ecological olive oil farmer has learned to live with and respect the local wildlife and flora of his surroundings. He has also learned how to naturally control pests without damaging the ecosystem, whilst aiming to protect the natural and personalised nature of the production process.
