Oli Migjorn is a small but interesting project focusing on the cultivation of olive trees and the production of organic extra-virgin olive oil, which began in 2007. Its aim was to renovate an old farm in the Cardener Valley, in the municipality of Navàs in the province of Barcelona. In the first phase, Arbequina olive trees were planted on the farm to start production of extra virgin olive oil. The company later renewed and clarified its direction with the aim of reviving the local and original olive variety Corbella in the Cardener River Valley. Quality, the revitalization of the local olive variety and the synergistic relationship with the arable land are the cornerstones of the operation. Quality production is one of the most important achievements of the project. The key is the natural cultivation of the land, the optimal harvesting time and the modern equipment used to produce olive oil. The end result is a unique, high-quality and close-knit product.
