We pressed our olives and made delicious Extra Virgin Olive Oil!!!
We planted 32 Olive Trees 3 years ago and this is the first year we hand picked them and had them pressed. It was such a wonderful experience and made me very proud of our little family. To know that our home grown oil is completely organic and free of any nasty pesticides, herbicides or preservatives is heart warming for us.
We managed to pick 101 kilograms of olives and of that we pressed 94kgs for oil and saved 7kgs for pickling. Out of the 94kgs we managed to get 16 litres of oil! That should get us through until next years harvest!
A truly great experience with both Johnathan and Albert. It cemented even more so our love and vision for our property. I feel so blessed to be able to grow nourishing and organic fruit and vegetables.
Some olive oil based recipes will be up soon :)
