Oil producing farm in Mallorca
Oil from Mallorca
The olive and its origin
As you might already know olive is the fruit of a small evergreen tree. Oil is extracted from the fleshy cover of the seed, that tasty product that we like so much and that makes life easier for us.
Obviously, the type of olive has a decisive influence on the organoleptic properties (taste, texture, smell, colour) of the oil obtained.
The estate occupies 33 cuarteradas (about 234,399m2). Of these, approximately half are dedicated to olive cultivation, while the rest are maintained as pine forest or garrigue (scrubland).
The oil mill
To avoid the loss of quality of the olive due to oxidation or fermentation, it is essential that no more than 24 hours pass between the collection and the production of the oil.
This year we have made a significant investment by expanding our facilities and setting up an oil mill. Thus, we achieved total control in the production of the oil, “from the tree to the table”, differentiating ourselves from the rest of the producers in Mallorca by working only with olives from our own farm, producing the oil in our mill and bottling it in our facilities.
All this with the aim of obtaining an extra virgin olive oil of highest quality.
Once the olive juice has been obtained, it is stored in tanks that are kept totally opaque, at a constant temperature and in a dry and dark environment, in order to maintain all its organoleptic qualities until the moment it is bottled and shipped to the client.

In Mallorca the olive tree presence is ancient. These trees, imported by Phoenicians and Greeks from the Eastern Mediterranean, adapted perfectly to our land and, over time, they developed in new varieties different from the original ones.
Mallorca olive oil has been exported since time immemorial. Well-loved for its features, which come from the island’s insularity as well as its orography and climatology, this oil has been food for peasants and noblemen, accompanying any dish and delighting palates, whether it was soaking a simple slice of bread, or as part of the most complex recipes of traditional Mediterranean cuisine.
Production of extra virgin olive oil in Mallorca
Due to the geographical, orographic and climatological characteristics of the island, as well as the olive trees age, Mallorca has a limited production, which favours the selection of varieties for the production of a high quality oil.
The production of olive oil in Mallorca, a product exported in ancient times to North Africa and France, had a strong growth during the 16th century, which meant an important change for local economy in the upcoming centuries.
Features that make Mallorca’s olive oil one of a kind
The calcareous origin with clay substrate of the soil gives the olive tree fruit its unique organoleptic properties.
The temperate climate in Mallorca, with mild winters and hot summers, plus annually rainfall of 570mm, mostly concentrated in spring and especially in autumn, and a high humidity are the main factors to keep the product consistent year after year.
