Our philosophy of creation

The philosophy around the agricultural exploitation from which our precious olive oils are obtained is to carry out a responsible and sustainable activity with the environment, to maintain the highest quality standards in our production. Likewise, for our brand it is of vital importance to carry out production as an integrated cycle fully developed at Hacienda Guzmán. However, as important is the process as the selected raw material. For this reason, Hacienda Guzmán carries out three levels of selection:

Selection of the cultivation plots: throughout the year, the entire farm is monitored and during the season, the most suitable plots for harvesting are selected.

Manual collection of the best green fruit to ensure the highest quality of the olives that arrive at the mill.

Selection of the best oils through the development of different analyzes and tastings.

Olive Trees Selection

Olive Trees Selection

We choose the olive trees
that have a better fruit quality

The 340 hectares of Hacienda Guzmán have the Ecological certification of the Andalusian Committee of Ecological Agriculture (CAAE). Of them, their irrigation, nutrition and pests are controlled. However, only olive trees that have better productivity and fruit quality will be selected as raw material for the production of Organic extra virgin olive oil HG.

Manual Collection

We ensure the most delicate
treatment of raw material

At Hacienda Guzmán the olive harvest is done manually in order to ensure the most delicate treatment of the raw material. This fact, together with the partial green harvesting, provide more organoleptic complexity to the final product, achieving a Premium olive oil that provides a great intensity of flavor and aroma, as well as a high level of antioxidants, including polyphenols, which ensures longer product life.

Transportation to the Almazara

We take the olives
to the oil mill immediately

Since the farm is next to the mill, this allows the time from the olive harvest to the obtaining of the oil to be less than 5 hours. This immediacy in the process helps to guarantee the high level of the fruit, and therefore, the quality of the extra virgin from Hacienda Guzmán.
