The worlds finest oil 2012

At last some photos of our oil production
Ten crates of hand picked olives
 Transported to the family owned traditional mill
Into one big crate for weighing
Then on their way to the stone wheels that ground them into a paste
The paste is distributed onto round pads that are then put onto the big spikes and placed under pressure in the blue machines, soon the oil starts to pour.  It is cleaned and finally many hours later our faces light up as we see the finished product. 

Our very own, it is every bit as gorgeous as it looks, 40 litres of the finest oil I have ever made/seen/tasted.


  1. I have serious oil envy now, what an achievement! And you know exactly where it comes from.

  2. I can vouch for how delicious your oil is! Congratulations on another productive season.

  3. How wonderful to have your own oil!!

  4. I would LOVE to produce my own olive oil. You are very very very lucky. xxxx

  5. Wow, I love a good olive oil too. They say it's incredibly good for you skin and it looks like you have enough to bathe in!


  6. I love this...what a great post! Of course, and lucky YOU to have such an opportunity. Mmmmm...a little beautiful green olive in a dish, a little seasoning a little chopped basil...fresh crusty bread. Yep, sounds wonderful!

  7. Looks good. Had never seen oil production before. love olive oil, but olive oil tasting was one of my worst experiences.
