Flora and fauna

Here, the olive trees are not alone. They are surrounded by almond trees, vines and aromatic plants such as thyme and rosemary. This diversity enriches the soil, improving the quality of the oil. In addition, native fauna, such as mountain goats and deer, play a crucial role in maintaining the ecological balance.
