This is a warm and rich land that has been full of life since ancient times. There are 380 hectares of land, divided into 230 hectares of olive groves and 150 hectares of pastures and Mediterranean forest.
This reddish calcareous land is home to our enviably secluded estate, situated in a unique location that offers spectacular sunrises and sunsets.
It is an unfailing source of energy and inspiration, full of magic and life.
From the very beginning we have been committed to organic and sustainable production and to the use of biodynamic agriculture in our commercial activities. The biodynamic method originated at the start of the 20th century with Rudolf Steiner. It aims to rescue ancestral cultivation practices, with the goal of recovering soil fertility, and allowing animals and plants to coexist in symbiosis, with minimum human intervention. At Finca la Torre we have been certified according to the EC directive on organic agriculture since 2001, and we have had the Demeter certification for biodynamic agriculture since 2006.

One of the fundamental pillars of biodynamic agriculture is the use of compost to boost the soil’s microbial activity. At Finca la Torre, we make this compost from crushed olive pulp produced in our olive mill, and from manure originating from nearby livestock farms.
Finally, the use of biodynamic preparations – such as one based on cow horn – and a specific calendar that recommends the ideal moment to carry out different agricultural tasks complement the usual practices for this type of agriculture.
