Oli de Marges de Can Calopa 0,25L
Oil made with the desire to safeguard the dry land agricultural mosaic in the Collserola mountain range, recovering olive trees on periurban estates and promoting historical varieties like the Arbequina and the Becaruda. Olive trees cultivated on family-run plots that survive in our rain-fed Mediterranean land that stakes a claim for farming activity linked to large cities.
Oli de Marges de Can Calopa is faithful to its periurban landscape, with resilient farming with a contemporary take on local farming traditions.

Farming and oil making
Certified organic dry land olive farming. From the field, we transport the olives to the reception yard in small mesh crates of 11 to 13 kg to keep them under optimal conditions through to manufacture. The olives are ground with a Tuscan hammer mill then stirred briefly (<45 minutes) at a low temperature (22-25ºC) using the cold extraction process. The oil is separated by centrifugation in two phases and later filtered. It is packaged in small batches on demand.
