Our passion started in 2000 with just a small hobby grove from our Dutch/Portuguese roots.
While helping with annual harvest, we fell in love with olives and their restorative health benefits. Via self-education, collaboration and a lot of trial & error, we are finally ready to share our products to you.... and we’re sure you’ll agree it was worth the wait!
We have an all-natural approach, using only the climate, animals and plants to fertilize and maintain our groves. Besides our own groves, we manage others to produce high quality olive oils from the little-known terroir of Coimbra, Central Portugal, where Eucalyptus plantations have sadly destroyed most ancient groves. Together with our cosy restaurant, where we enjoy creating innovative gastronomy with our beloved olive oils at the heart, we aim to promote the organic, local produce and celebrate healthy food from the center of Portugal.
To guarantee quality & taste, we are involved in every little detail of production.
With a refillable organic painted glass bottle, our recyclable Bag-in-Box and low-emission logistics we hope to set a positive example for current and future generations to make a more positive environmental impact.
We only have one life to do good, so love (y)our nature.
