AN UNIQUE LOCATION IN A NATURAL ENVIRONMENT

The El Tilo farm is located in the Villuercas-Ibores-Jara Geopark, in the northeast of the province of Cáceres, in the region of Extremadura (Spain).

Located at 800 meters of altitude, the farm has 35 hectares of olive groves where 9,000 olive trees, exclusively of the Cornicabra variety are cultivated. This variety is ideal for the mountain climate and the orography of the terrain.

The farm is called “El Tilo” because of a beautiful old specimen of this tree species that has witnessed the growth of our olive trees for generations.

NATURAL ENVIRONMENT

Within El Tilo farm, we also find an area of wild nature that occupies about 30 hectares. Thickets and a large number of protected trees such as junipers, holm oaks and cork oaks, typical of the Mediterranean forest grow along with many other species of native flora and fauna.

On the banks of the Ibor river which bathes the property, the wildlife is very rich, and the farm is frequently visited by deer, wild boar, foxes and even Iberian lynx, a native cat of the Iberian peninsula, which until recently was in danger of extinction.

SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE

In El Tilo farm we practice sustainable agriculture. All the energy required for carrying out the activities of the farm is obtained from our solar panels.

In our olive grove, the vegetal cover of the soil is carefully preserved to prevent erosion, help in the retention of water and nutrients, and favor the increase of organic matter in the soil.
