Cooperativa la Fraternal de l'Albagés L'Albagés
Agricultural cooperative located in the center of the region of Les Garrigues, a region producing Arbequina olive oil of recognized international fame. Our small Cooperative (about eighty members) is registered in the Protected Designation of Origin Garrigues, has its own brand, ALBA1919.
We developed two oil lines: conventional and ecological, both of the highest quality.
The year 2019 we celebrate our centenary and from the beginning of the Harvest 2018/2019, that is, since the beginning of November, we want to open our doors more than ever to make known our Cooperative, our people, our way of living in the rural world and our faith in the cultivation of this land that we love with renewed hope for a hundred years.
If you come to see us we will show you our mill, how we make the oil, how to taste it and appreciate its characteristics, how healthy is the consumption of extra virgin olive oil, the differences between the different types of oil in the market and that consumers often do not know, what guarantees of quality it is to belong to an appellation of origin... and we will respond with great pleasure to the questions you want to ask us.
Our town is small too; It has about 400 inhabitants and its economy is based on agriculture, mainly the cultivation of olive trees. A reservoir has been built to its municipal area that will distribute the water of the Segarra-Garrigues Canal, which will allow irrigation to be applied to our olive trees, which always suffer from the lack of water in our dry land.
Contact us before you come, whether you are a family, a small group, a school, an association, etc. We can schedule your visit together and we can make it easier to complement the view, with other visits or with a tour of the town and its surroundings stay at La Fraternal.
