What is "adopting an olive tree"?
As for the price, you have 3 options:
We label the olive tree, locate it on the map and send you information about how it is growing by email or by whatspp. You can come visit it anytime you want. The annual fee is 15€ and covers part of the maintenance and sending of the information.
It includes the option 1 plus 1 kg of olives from the olive tree to be seasoned at home (we will explain you how to do it). If they are sent to mainland Spain the annual fee, including shipping, is 35€. If we send to Belgium the annual fee, shipping included, is 45€.
This includes option 1 plus 6 bottles of 750ml of organic extra virgin olive oil made with part of the olives from the olive tree . If they are sent to mainland Spain the annual fee, including transport, is 70€. If we send to Belgium the annual fee, transport included, is 85€.

These are the three places where you can adopt an olive tree as a gift
La Grama is the origin of the project, where our parents planted a few olive trees over 60 years ago and taking care of them gave us the idea of obtaining our own olive oil. Ten years ago we started to plant our own olive trees and today we have about 17 hectares of olive trees, mainly manzanilla cacereña and cornicabra. It is located in a Natura 2000 area of special protection for Great Bustards.
Las Navas is a piece of land close to the village of La Guardia where we started to plant a total of 11 hectares of olive groves about 5 years ago, of arróniz and manzanilla cacereña varieties. In the same area we inherited from the family a small parcel of land with about 40 olive trees of about 20 years old that are already in full production. Of the rest of the hectares only a few olive trees of the arroniz variety are in production, for the rest we still have to wait…
Cerro Caracas or La Yunquera is the parcel where the mill is located and has around 4 hectares of newly planted olive grove (not yet on google maps). All the olive trees in the area are 2-3 years old and are of the arróniz variety, except for a few of manzanillo or cornicabra variety which were planted in the middle to encourage the pollination of the flowers. It is an area of very easy access, at the km. 81 of the Motorway of Andalusia.
