    ECOLOGICAL AGRICULTURE is an alternative way of understanding farming. It is based on the respect towards the environment surrounding us, producing healthy and high quality goods and updating our technical and scientific knowledge. In order to reach this aims we must apply a number of techniques which may be part of our agricultural system and must also avoid environmental impacts:
Enhancing soil fertility and productive capacity to ensure the continuity of the agricultural production.
Respecting the natural cycle of crops an give the herd healthy living conditions.
Avoiding adding substances that can be harmful or can reduce their nutritional value.
The lack of an effective legislation to identify GM food makes Ecological Agriculture be the most reliable guarantee of food with no genetically engineered components.
Today’s agriculture has separated from its own environment in such a way that it has become one of its worst enemies: the widespread use of chemical fertilizers is leading to soil, water and air degradation.

Organic agriculture avoids these problems by using only natural products and methods. We take advantage of the productive power of the soil keeping it as a living system and improving its natural fertility.

Balanced systems are created with strong healthy plants, therefore, natural processes themselves and the resistance of the crop will be sufficient to prevent pests and diseases.
Our cattle are raised in a proper and natural space; they are feed in a balanced way. Thus, we avoid using substances or techniques that may damage the ecosystem.

Organic agriculture requires different systems in which the variety of crops, the fences, the grass next to fruit trees, green manure, the vegetation of margins and boundaries… generate rich ecosystems and of high environmental value.

In short, we maintain a complex agro-ecosystem intimately related to nature.
