Cortijo el Puerto supports biodiversity, protects, promotes and encourages it. Biodiversity in fauna and flora, and also in olive varieties. 11 olive varieties in the farm, of which, 8 has been released this year in our “Granja” (“Farm”) series, all of them organic and biodynamic. Reflection of biodiversity and ecosystem integration, we have chosen as image of each olive variety, one of the animals of the farm, normally linked to its habitat area. Thus, the owl represents the variety of Greek origin Koroneiki, as was the owl symbol of the goddess Athena, from whom we borrow our taste for knowledge and research.
