Olive Oil update

Saturday, November 12th, 2011

Well we pressed the Olives yesterday. 760 Kg which gave us 194 litres.
I’ll post some pictures later.

It was a glorious warm, dry week, so lucky, again.

Olive Oil 2009

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009

2009 was a lot kinder than last year, dry, sunny, warm but very windy. The crop was pretty good but the press demanded a minimum of 1000 kilos for an individual pressing so we picked and pressed with a few neighbours.

In total we had 1114 kgs which yielded 220 litres of your finest Extra Virgin Olive Oil. We started picking on Friday morning and finished with lunch on Sunday and then pressed at 11Am on Monday, on time for the 1st time.

The oil tastes fantastic, maybe the best yet. I’ve seen an ad online where they charge 25 pounds for half a litre of the fresh stuff!

That time of the year again.

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

The date is set, November 20th, the day we plan to press our Olives. It’s not our biggest crop but they look very healthy and we hope the weather will be kind between now and the 20th. We will pick them between 17th and 19th depending on the weather.

We have a few local friends who have offered to help but we have space in the Villa and Apartment if you fancy a week away from it all.
