Farm size - 33 hectares
Location - Vimieiro, Arraiolos, Portugal



5750 Picual specie trees planted over 20,5
Plantation compass is 7 x 4 m which means
the drive way is 7m wide to enable tractor to
approach tree at angulation for harvest
purposes. The trees are planted 4m apart.
Drip irrigation takes place mostly in summer
at a ratio of approximately 4,5 to 5 litres of
water per tree per day The root ridges
enable the roots maximum sun exposure
and water retention. This growing method
is not common in Portugal and is the main
reason for optimum harvest yield.
Each tree at maturity (2015) will yield
approximately 30kg of olives per annum.
Picual is mostly used for olive oil production


When full holds 35 million litres of water.
The natural source of fountain inlet is
approximately 40 cubic litres a day in the
summer months (April to September). This
natural supply is complemented by transfer
of water from a private dike. The pump
installed in the dike has a capacity to
transfer 30 cu meters of water an hour.


A small water stream called `Ribeiro das
Covas` runs through the North East side of
the farm.
A dyke has been built along this water
stream in the farm grounds creating an
additional water log of approximately 2.500
m³ . This water is used to replenish the dam
during the summer period. Approximately
10.000 m³ are transferred a year.

This stream runs into Ribeira da Tera that
ends up in the Tejo river in Lisboa


The electric pumps are held in a floater
placed in the dam with a maximum pump
capacity of 100 cu m. of water an hour. The
pumps are activated by means of a variator
and can work from 10% up to 100% pump
output according to demand of irrigation.
The water is pumped through filters capable
of retaining particles to a minimum size of 60
microns. The pH of the water is adjusted
automatically during the pumping cycle and
soluble nutrients are added before the water
is delivered to the various sectors of

Olive trees need an acid pH. Grass needs
an alkaline pH.


The course is being developed in an area of
about 4 ha surrounded by `azinheiras`
(holm oak trees)

It will accommodate: 6 greens with the
following characteristics

The irrigation system comprises 5 sectors.
The irrigation is electronically controlled
from the far-away pump station computer.
The water consumption of the swingolf
course is approximately 80 m³ per day in
summer time.
The Swingolf course faces South-East to
facilitate perfect shading and even growth.
It is designed in such a way that drainage of
each green is directed to small ponds do
reduce water wastage. Water is mainly
dissipated through vaporisation and


All waste at the farm is recycled at the eco
station. A special shredding machine
reduces all organic matter to particles not
big than to 2 to 3 cm and through an organic
process it is converted into compost. The
compost is used to fertilise the gardens.
