Why adopt an olive tree?
When you adopt an olive tree you are not only getting a unique gift but also enabling us to maintain the traditional ways to care for our trees. We have been chemical free for 10 years but it’s not the easy way to do it. Keeping the grass down takes time and effort, adopting a tree helps us put fuel in the strimmer.
We ensure that the trees get what they need naturally in order to produce oil of an exceptional quality, at the same time as farming the trees in a totally sustainable, organic way.
Adopt a tree and help us to continue this sustainable production method.
“Each type of tree, depending on the producing area, … produces an oil with different chemical and organoleptic properties. And within the same variety, different oils are produced depending on factors such as microclimate, the type of soil, altitude..” Asoliva (Spanish Olive oil organisation)
We are small producers of olive oil and like small wine producers, the oil we produce is individual and full of character. Each batch we make here at Manna House has its own personality; individually created by the combination of olive varieties, date of harvesting and weather.
