Korudağ Olive Farm is an agricultural premise carrying out olive cultivation and olive oil production in İzmir, at Zeytindağ region of Çandarlı Bay.
The olive seedlings, cultivated by vegetative methods, specifically for our farm, are being planted at our farm, in accordance with the geographic conditions of our region and as a result of years of researches. As a result of the evaporation calculations, a 100 km long drip irrigation line was built to meet the irrigation needs of our farm which is designed to carry out modern agriculture applications, fully automated irrigation and fertilization. Our new planting sites and advanced, prolific olive trees are being monitored daily by our agriculture engineers. Thus potential diseases are detected and treated by professionals long before they occur. The trees are being irrigated and fertilized in a schedule determined based on the humidity and salinity rates of the soil, recorded by various pH meters and tensiometers in our farm. Besides such daily analysis, soil and water analysis are being conducted regularly by accredited organizations. As for cultivation, all sorts of high technology agricultural machines are being used in our farm.
We produce olive oil by two different methods in a 10.000 m2 land on the dominant hill of our farm. One of those is cold press method. We produce olive oil with Italian origin, SPI 111 S model, two phase, environment friendly, fully automated system manufactured by Pieralisi, the leader of olive oil production systems. The other one is water press method used for producing olive milk. The oil we produce at both facilities are being transferred to the steel tanks in the climate room before it gets fermentated and nitrogen gas is added to prevent contact with air. After being stabilized at convenient ambient conditions, they are bottled at our facility to be presented to the market.
