Herdade dos Alfanges is a family-owned organic farm located in the Alentejo region of Portugal. The farm is operated by the Berger family, who have been farming the land for many years now. The farm spans over 90 hectares and is home to a herd of happy sheep, free-range chickens, and a vast grove of ancient olive trees that produce some of the best olive oil in the world.
The olive oil production at Herdade dos Alfanges is a highlight of the farm. The Berger family has carefully cultivated their olive groves and harvested the olives with great care to ensure the best quality oil. The olives are cold-pressed on the farm, without any heat or chemicals, to produce a rich, flavourful oil that is full of antioxidants and healthy fats. (visit www.dabaronia.com)
