Frequently asked questions Adopt-an-Olive-Tree Program

For how long can I keep my olive tree?


Your tree is your tree as long as you like. You pay once a year the annual adoption fee (EUR 79) and you can cancel your adoption membership at any time. By adopting the olive trees from the Elietsa Adopt-an-olive-tree program, you control what you eat and that it's healthy. At the same time your adoption helps us to expand the circular cultivation method. With this method we reuse the waste of the olive press, recycled in a special soil conditioner and applied to our Adopt-an-olive-Tree orchard. It save hazardous waste dumps. So your adoption, directly helps to save the planet. Its what we call circular cultivation and full transparancy, something what we haven't seen any other olive oil brand doing however we, together, aim to stimulate to culitvate and produce following this new norm.
