Cereals and alfalfa are used as sheep feed, the manure is used as fertilizer for the olive groves and other crops. The soil of the olive groves is rich in natural minerals and elements, where wild grass grows. It is only cut at a certain moment, and the remains are left on the ground to serve as natural fertilizer. The same process is carried out with the branches, which are cut during the pruning season. These branches are later grinded and then added to the soil to add lots of minerals that the tree needs.
