This week the temperature will go already up to 40 degrees celcius and our olives are growing pretty good.

We want to give you a small insite into our farm and show you some pictures of our olive and other fruit trees we are growing.

Our olives love the warm weather and as far as we see right now, it will be a good year to harvest again. Our trees are also ready for sponsorships. If you are interested here is the link to our sponsorships of an olive tree. https://equilibrio.com.pt/portfolio/patenschaft-eines-olivenbaumes/

Also if you have any questions, please leave a comment, we are happy to answer them!

We wish you all the best, take care and enjoy nature!
