The olive oils of Olival da Risca are exclusively "extra virgin" - each one a first class organic olive oil with Demeter quality. Being untreated natural products of the highest quality, these olive oils are obtained with the utmost care from olives that have reached their optimum ripeness.The olives are first milled immediately after harvest in our farm's own oil mill and then undergo gentle cold extraction. This procedure ensures that all the valuable ingredients of the olives are conserved, resulting in excellent olive oils with intense green to golden yellow color, a fruity taste and a characteristic flavor.
The Dornhoff family runs their orange shop in Portugal since 1993. We found our home on the sunny coast of the Algarve and today; we produce on our land called: "Quinta dos Passaros" - the estate of the birds, fruits from an ecological viewpoint, just as mother nature imaginations it. The mineral-rich clay soils and our unique geographic location, in an area without any heavy industry, guarantees you one of the best qualities in Europe. A high ripeness degree brings a low acidity level, which is the secret of our fruit's above-average taste, and thus makes them so favored.ed.

Freshness you can taste - Orange Shop
We still do lots of manual labor, to care for our Quinta, and we fertilize with expensive organic fertilizers, we reduce the pest infestation with biologically meaningful products and "pamper" our pest insects with wine vinegar traps. We have planted thousands of "non-fruit trees" to give a home to birds and other beneficial creatures and plants.
The respect for our Mother Earth is an obligation assumed with our love and gratitude. How beauteous if we all have something of it.
We look forward to your visit to our shop and wish you a lot of fun and a good appetite - your orange shop Quinta-Shopping
