Our love for beekeeping has always been shared with olive growing, which is why we are testing ways to unite and improve both.
In our olive groves we let vegetation cover grow, and even honey species are planted, which at the same time serve to feed our bees, help to provide organic matter and pump minerals from deep horizons, to take advantage of the energy capture surface, to favor the filtration of water to the roots of the olive trees and to maintain a biodiversity in the olive grove. All this contributes to generating value in the agrosystem, an increase in fauna and flora, increases in pollination, inputs and the health of olive trees, which translate into higher productions and lower maintenance costs, reduction of use of sanitary products and costs of labor and fuel in unnecessary tillage work.
Currently the tests are being carried out in several farms, such as the Finca del Castillo de la Familia Corbel in Recas (Toledo), the Finca del escorial in Mombeltrán (Ávila), the Balaguera farm in Ugena (Toledo). In all of them there have been considerable increases in production since we started with the project.
