WHO WE ARE
DEORTEGAS is a family business that has used Organic
farming methods for many generations and has been
certified as such for some 25 years. We have always
believed in , and promoted, the benefits of organic
products and the importance of valuing and supporting
producers who work with proper respect for the earth.
We are located in Yecla (Murcia) and have two estates
of traditionally cultivated, unwatered olive groves (Los
Charquillos and Hoya Hermosa).
HOW WE PRODUCE OUR OIL
We have developed, and control, all aspects of our oil
production: we grow, press, bottle and market our own
We are absolutely rigorous in our production processes.
We harvest our olives when they are perfectly ripe and
cold press them on the same day. We allow this juice
to settle out naturally and the results are spectacular
producing harmonious and elegant extra-virgin olive oils.
OUR COMMITMENT TO THE ENVIRONMENT
At Deortegas we are awore of our responsibility to the earth and the
environment that surrounds us With this in mind we have developed
an integrated sustainable model of agriculture making the best
possible use of everything that we take from the land and recycling
all the by-products of our oil production.
We mix the olive residues and tree prunings with natural manure
and use it to fertilise our own land organically. We use the olive
stones as fuel to provide heating and hot water In our oil mill and
the leaves that we collect while washing the olives provide organic
livestock feed. This way we create the natural integrated cycle that
we consider essential for the future of our world and that forms part
of our philosophy as farmers and as a business.
All of DEORTEGAS olive oils are certified by the Region of Murcia
Organic Farming Council and carry the organic seal of both the
region and Europe.
