The walnut orchards were first planted at the end of the 1960s, and today they cover a total of 30ha in Trás-os-Montes, but over time the Quinta da Lagoalva has been developing and modernizing its production and in recent years an additional 40ha has been planted in Montoito (Alentejo).
The walnuts are harvested using a specific machine and cleaned using water.
They are artificially dried with hot air up to 30ºC, thereby achieving humidity of less than 10%.
Production is currently channelled both to the national and international market.
The Quinta da Lagoalva orchard has diverse varieties of walnut trees:
Franquette, Fernor, Serr, Lara, Howard e Chandler.
