Oli Migjorn is a project born in 2007, with the desire to recover the Migjorn estate, located in the Cardener Valley, in the south of Cardona, Barcelona. It is a project dedicated to the cultivation of olive trees and production of organic extra virgin olive oil.
Quality, the recovery of the local variety and the synergy with the territory are their day-to-day goals. Quality is one of the spearheads of the project, field work, ecological treatment, the choice of harvest time and the use of modern machinery for oil production are the key. Gourmet products , quality, and proximity are their values.
Since I started distributing evoo in UK they have supported me with their knowledge and supplied good extra virgin olive oil which delights consumers.
Arbequina variety is a tiny olive its weight is 1.20 grams. From that tiny origin we can obtain a non bitter oil, a little bit pungent and slightly spicy.
It ‘s adored by chefs as it combines well with all the ingredients, it’s not a dominant taste, it lets other ingredients dominate the palate
The olive tree produces plenty of fruits regularly , it can cope well very cold weathers and adapts very well to different climates and soils, nowadays there are more trees growing outside Catalonia than in its original region
