Our Maipú orchard is located in the town Fray Luis Beltrán, where we cultivate 198 acres (80 hectares) of olive trees using an organic production system. This region used to be a large wetland known as “La Gran Ciénaga de Bermejo.” The climate of the area and its various soil types create diverse environmental conditions that range from wetlands with marshy vegetation to sand dunes where only a few species can grow. This favors the development of a varied and complex biodiversity. There are green areas between the olive trees, biological corridors, and countryside with native flora and fauna that surrounds the orchards. This generates an agro-ecosystem that makes it possible to practice sustainable agriculture.
The cultivation of an extensive varietal collection that brings together more than 90 varieties of olive trees from different parts of the world allows us to investigate the adaptation of these varieties to our region and produce oils with diverse profiles and flavors.
