The Story of our Olive Oil
This was the first year that we were there in October in time for the olive harvest.
Step 1: Harvesting the Olives
Step 2: loading the mill
Here are a few snapshots: The mechanical process of milling the oil, does heat it to about 26 degrees but that doesn’t do the oil any harm. Our olives have seen neither fertilizer nor pestizides or herbizides and we are lucky enough to have German neighbours who also go without.
Step 3 – washing the olives
Step 4: via conveyor belt to the cleaning station
Step 5: sorting the olives from branches & leaves
Step 6: milling the olives
Finished: the green gold!
