Torca Gold Extra Virgin Olive Oil, produced on five hectares next to beautiful Laguna Torca,Maule,Chile. Frantoio,Manzanilla and Arbequina, grown here.
Torca Gold Extra Virgin Olive Oil, produced on five hectares next to beautiful Laguna Torca, Maule, Chile. Our three year old Olive grove has been an exciting time for us. Our dream of filling the farm with olive trees has become a reality. We have planted three different types of Olive. Arbequina, Manzanilla, and Frantoio. Fortunately the world problem olive fly does not exist in Chile, giving us a huge advantage over other countries.. We have installed a drip irrigation system to ensure the health of the olive trees, on the flat land next to the Laguna. We have planted 100 Frantoio up on the hillside as an experiment in water management using only rainfall for water supply. We have planted 3 year old trees, which we had been kept potted to give the best chance of success. The land was formerly used for pine forest and has to be left for a year for the acids to rebalance.
