The Cortijo de Suerte Alta is a family property located on the right bank of the Guadajoz river next to the town of Albendín, municipality of Baena, Córdoba, in central Andalusia, southern Spain.
In 1924 the Marquises of Bedmar began the transformation of the estate into an olive grove, previously used for pasture and cereal. The plantation was carried out with three-foot trees located in a staggered arrangement, 13 meters apart and with a density of 75 trees / hectare.
The traditional olive trees of the Baena area, picudos, hojiblancos and picuales, were planted intermixed, as was the custom of the time, to favor pollination and control overrun. The olives from the family farms were ground in the mill located in the farm's farmhouse and in another family mill in neighboring Cabra.
The current owner, Marquis de Prado, grandson of the previous ones, takes over Suerte Alta from 1986 on. The olive grove plantation with trees of a foot to frame of 7x7 meters is completed, with an average density of 205 trees / hectare.
In 1996 the reconversion of the farm to Ecological Cultivation began under the control of the CAAE and the work of transformation into irrigation of the olive grove began.
Currently Suerte Alta dedicates an area of 255 hectares to olive groves, 80% traditional olive groves with an average annual production of 250,000 kg of oil.
