About us and our project

La Grama, Organic Olivummh! About us and our project

We are...

Olive trees and land...

Olive trees that are there, some for 60 years, others were planted recently. We take care of them with absolute respect for nature, because we believe in each of the letters of the word ORGANIC. The land is in La Guardia (Toledo) at the entrance to Spanish region of La Mancha, less than an hour away from Madrid and Toledo. Three areas: La Grama, Las Navas y Cerro Caracas, around 30 has of organic olive grove.

Some people...

Some of us work in the mill. We grind the olives and store the olive oil in the tanks. We put it in bottle when we receive an order. Some of us take care of the olive trees and the land where they are planted. We try to intervene as less as possible, checking in case they need something. When it is time to pick the olives we do it without letting them fall to the ground so as not to damage them.

And a mill

A family mill, probably among the smallest in the area. The mill has an elaboration room, a cellar where we store the olive oil and a bottle packing room. It has also a big tasting room equipped with a kitchen, where you can discover the world of olive tree and olive oil. You can visit the mill. It is in the middle of a new olive grove and next to the motorway of Andalusia, at the km. 81, we are less than 1 hour from Madrid and Toledo.

We also are...

100% Green energy

The solar panels of the mill generate 100% of the energy we consume throughout the year. The surplus energy is poured into the net. A recharge point allows to charge the electric car with green energy. We irrigate the olive grove only when it is absolutely necessary, and we also use solar energy.

100% Organic farming

The mill and the Olive Grove are certified 100% organic farming and if we use olives from other farmers of the zone, they are also certified organic. We try to take care of nature and pass it on to the next generations with the least possible footprint. This is how we understand the word organic.

100% Quality

We take care of the fruit, we harvest it in green or when the skin is changing colour from green to black, we grind it in a matter of hours and we keep it protected from oxygen and light. Soon harvest means we need more kilos of olives to produce a liter of olive oil. We hope you appreciate it…
