In 2010, 120 olive trees were planted on the finca " esencial". In addition, there are three olive trees over a hundred years old on the finca. At the same time, the Arroyo family planted 1200 olive trees of the Arbequina and Redondilla varieties on their finca on the Way of St. James and managed both fincas together. In 2015, the first appreciable quantity of olives was harvested and processed into 100% virgen extra aceite de oliva. In 2019 a new record was set - 2000 litres of olive oil could be produced. The young olive trees are not treated with pesticides, but are grown organically. The soil has only natural fertilizer. The November harvest was done by hand and cold pressed by machine. The olive oil has not yet received the BIO label, because the certification is very expensive and therefore could not yet be completed. The acidity is only 0.5%. Virgen extra may contain up to 0.8% acid. Slightly piquant and with little bitterness, the olive oil develops a fantastic taste and is ideal for cold cuisine.
