Our farm, the Fontclara farm is located in the heart of Baix Empordà, on the edge of the medieval towns of Peratallada, Palau Sator and Ullastret
We produce ecologically and are regularly controlled by the Consell Català de la Prducció Agrària Ecológica for compliance with the required regulations.
We currently cultivate around 5,400 olive trees on 23 hectares of land, many of them centenary.
The olives are harvested by hand in late September or early October, when they are still green, and are immediately processed in our own oil mill. The olive oil is stored in the oil tanks of our heated algar.
