Familien Serrano-López Olive GroveWhy is organic extra virgin olive oil an advantage?

According to FIBL-IFOAM The World of Organic Agriculture 2017. Denmark has on a global level, the largest consumption of organic products. And Denmark is number 2 regarding consumption of organic products per person.

Very impressively positive, I think we should be proud of this, in our little beautiful Denmark. Where we have to import healthy olive oil from the Mediterranean countries, as we cannot produce it ourselves.

However, as Jose tells, the sprays used for conventional production will end partly in the soil and partly in the olives.

And what is in the olive fruit yes it ends up in their fresh extra virgin olive oil juice and family Serrano-Lopes, would like to produce exclusive extra virgin olive oil that is pure nature.

Organic olive oil plantation, why?

For the olive trees and ultimately the high-quality extra virgin olive oil, there are good and bad insects, good and bad birds, and good and bad herbs on the soil around the olive trees.

As Josemaria Then, conventional agriculture leaches the soil and provokes erosion in the dry and bare soil when rain and heatwaves warmer than hitherto experienced blows across Spain.

Organic farming maintains a soil rich in minerals and nutrients and results in sustainable production.

The family wants to leave a land in balance for children and grandchildren, where insects, rabbits, and birdlife can unfold their wings.
