We always treated the olive groove in a traditional way, never adding any chemical substance to increase production or fighting plagues and weeds. In this kind of olive groove the trees have a good distance between, which reduces competition for resources.
To increase nutrients in the soil, we apply organic farming techniques like cut and bury the grass and the pruning remains and to seed some mixtures which fix the nitrogen in the soil and avoid the erosion.
The Quinta da Serrinha olive oil is an organic certified product, resulting of the good farming practices which contribute to the biodiversity maintenance and the consumer health.
