Near the end of February in the southern hemisphere, the different varieties start achieving their optimal maturity. For Morixe Olive Oil, olives are handpicked, the best harvesting method to get perfectly healthy fruit. Only fruit from the trees is washed for grinding. At the Liliana farm, adjacent to the olive trees is the company´s oil mill where the oil is extracted by centrifugation and stored in stainless steel tanks, at a constant temperature, until it is bottled. The result is an extra virgin olive oil produced only with olives form our own farms, Liliana and San Gabriel. Where each harvest is subject to strict quality control, as evidenced but the limited number of bottles destined to the commercial markets.
During the workday one can se the workers who care for the olive trees lean against the tree due to the wind, or cover their heads with a white handkerchief to shield themselves from the intense sun.However, during a calm evening, when the wind takes a rest and the sky adopts a bluish hue, the silence is so profound one can almost hear the earth speaking. The hard work of the people that make it and the magic of its native land may be the secrets behind Morixe extra Virgin Oil, the taste from a land where the world begins anew.
