Company: Finca Duernas is an organic olive grove with its own mill that belonged to the same Serrano-López family for over 200 years. Located in Córdoba (Spain) they start the harvest collect during the ENVERO, a month and a half ahead to when it is traditionally done. Pressing is immediate due to the fact that the mill is placed in the center of the grove. In this way they avoid oxidation of a fresh fruit.

Finca Duernas's traceability system allow to know, through the lot number the area of the grove where the oil comes from, the exact date of harvest and who collect the olive. This is the best way to ensure food security to the consumer.
They consider the organic farming the way to pass down the estate to further generations in optimal conditions.
