Services to adopt an olive tree
1. Tracking of the farm
During the whole year, we will keep you informed of the work to be done at the farm where your olive tree is. The trees will be cultivated using a sustainable and ecological agriculture which will help the tree to remain healthy and fertile to produce a high quality olive oil.
The main actions carried out during the year are:
Remove the shoots
Branches naturally sprout from the trunk of the olive tree to protect it from the sun and the summer heat. After the hottest months of the year, these shoots are removed so that the olive tree does not lose strength with these new non-productive shoots and thus, obtain a good harvest of olives.
Currently, on the market you can find chemical products that prevent or control the growth of these shoots at the foot of the olive trees. Fortunately, these methods are not used on Suolivera and this process is done by hand and the sweat of the farmers. This way, a contamination of the soil and the olive tree is avoided as well as for the future olive oil.
Tree trimming and removal of remains
During the year, the branches of an olive tree grow and their thickness increase. In order to better collect the olives and the olive tree is relieved, Suolivera professionals harvest the olive tree periodically.
Till the land
A few times a year, the land has to be tilled so that it is oxigenated permitting the rainwater to penetrate more effectively to the roots of the trees. In addition, weeds are eliminated and the field is ready to harvest the olives.

2. Extra virgin olive oil
Annually, after the harvest is completed, you will receive the freshly pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, obtained directly from your adopted olive tree, directly delivered to your home. A high quality olive oil with a unique flavour from olives that grow under Mediterranean conditions. Exclusive varieties that are only to be found in our “Tierras del Senia”. These unique varieties are the “Morrut”, the “Sevillenca” and the “Farga” and their olive oil is highly appreciated in the culinary world, since they maintain a sweet, fruity, a little bit bitter with a spicy flavour touch.
We respect the environment and avoid plastic in our products as much as possible. 780 ml glass bottles and compostable labels are used to pack the Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
3. Baptize your olive tree
You will have the opportunity to name your olive tree as to identify it quickly on the farm.
4. Visit our farm lands
Come and visit and see your adopted olive tree which is giving you your Extra Virgin Olive Oil each year, giving you as well as joy, a special flavour to your daily dishes.
5. Certificate of adoption
Thanks to people like you, abandoned olive trees are being recovered and many will not be threatened by the pillaging that exists in the area. From Suolivera we want you to, on a daily basis, be aware of the great work you contribute to. So we are pleased to present you with the Suolivera sponsorship certificate.
Without your help this project would not be possible. Thank you very much.
