The farm. The family. The history.
Our farm. Our family. Our history.
When you add our olive oil to a slice of bread, or when you dress a salad or sauté some vegetables with it, you’re experiencing a tradition of thousands of years as well as treasuring the illusion of a family that works a land surrounded by the sea and illuminated by the sun.
The Miralles are a traditional family from Mallorca, an unbreakable and hard-working family, in which joys and sorrows and also common goals and dreams are shared, which makes them a united family living for the same purpose.
Joan Miralles, the family patriarch, is a person who had a dream 20 years ago. After years working in the tourism sector, he wanted to go back to his roots and contribute a natural, sustainable and healthy product to the community. He wanted to create a product that was calm, restful, pragmatic and valuable, that is, a product that aligned with the island’s character that he loves so much.
The farm is not just a way they make a living from. This property is a meeting place, a reference point for the whole family. Following the Mediterranean tradition, they gather there on Sundays to share a meal, enjoy each other and keep up with the ups and downs of daily life.
When Miquel Miralles Jr. took over the farm management, he continued the path set by his father and incorporated elements that would allow a better marketing and packaging of the product, updating the illusion.
Our property is located in the island’s plain, also known as ‘es Pla’, which is placed almost in its centre, and the reason why this area has a more pronounced climate than the coastline, as well as colder winters and warmer summers.
The farm occupies 33 cuarteradas –unit of agricultural area in Mallorca that is equivalent to 234,399 m2. Approximately half of this area is dedicated to olive cultivation, while the rest is kept as pine forests or garriga (scrubland).

Treurer comes from the Majorcan word tresorer, which means ‘the one who takes care of the treasure’, usually the tax collector of the town hall.
The origin of the farm is ancestral. The first written reference is from 1603, when its owner and its value at the time are mentioned. Already in the past the farm was mentioned as a prosperous property.
At some point in its history it was part of another larger property, a time when the current houses were built as a home place for the ‘garriguer’ or guardian of the estate.
After going through the usual ups and downs between 1603 and 1745, in this late year became the property we know now with its 33 cuarteradas.
