History - Organic and Sustainable
Deortegas (Almazara Deortegas) is a generations-old family owned and operated olive farm located in Yecla (Southeastern Spain). The Ortegas have long committed to organic and sustainable farming (over 18 years), and everything they take from the land they recycle:
~ olive residues and tree prunings are mixed with natural manure, fertilizing the olive groves organically.
~ olive pits are used as fuel to provide heating and hot water in the olive mill.
~ olive leaves are collected and fed to the livestock.
Rigorous Production Process
The Ortegas grow, harvest, and press their olives on-site on their farm. When the olives are ready they are picked and cold-pressed on the same day. The Ortegas only bottle their olive oil as orders come in, preserving the freshness of each batch.
