Most often, olive trees are grown in groves. Groves are meticulously manicured rows of olive trees and fertilized for optimum growth. At the Hiç Olive Forest, we leave the trees of our Turkish olive forest to grow in their organic environment. Their only gardeners are the wild trees, herbs, animals, bees and even the winds of the Aegean Sea. This is why we call it a forest, rather than an olive grove.
Hiç cultivates the lands’ natural flora with sunlight and rainwater to capture the unique characteristics from the Urla landscape.
Hiç Olive Forest uses only self-sustainable farming systems including:
> Solar panels
> Recycled rainwater
> Green manure
