A model “Finca”
Finca Duernas is immensely proud of the fact that it has been seen as an example for other farms (known locally as fincas) to follow over various periods of its history and that its owners have gained a hard-earned reputation for excellence.
Our innovation can be clearly seen in the cultivation techniques we use. Many olive orchards have irregular rows of olive trees following the dips and rises of the contour lines, with the trunks at varying levels and differently shaped trees. At Finca Duernas, however, the rows are perfectly straight, with trees of uniform height and shape, allowing the olives to be harvested mechanically in optimum conditions and the trees to be looked after properly.
