Summer heat brought our harvest forward – quite a few trees seems to be having a rest so the harvest a little below expected. 264 kilos were gathered with the customary mix of roughly Manzanillas 80% and Blanqueta 20% producing 65 litres of Extra virgin organic olive oil from Jordi’s press in the campo. No happy gatherers from abroad this year – but the home crew enjoyed a sunny October day harvesting and an enjoyable lunch. Thanks to Tineke, Chris, Remé and Sol for all their help. The oil is tangy, full of flavour and delicious on morning toast with a rose window of Alicante tomato.

The trees now ready for a prune with hopes for a better harvest next year.
