LAST PICKING FOR 2018 – OFF WE GO TO THE OLIVE MILL!!!

October 14, 2018 Post by Chris Kavalieratos

This weekend we collected the last part of our 2018 olive crop from our olive groves. The bad summer weather (lots of rain with excessive temperatures) created ideal conditions for the increase of the olive fly population. Because of the increased possibility for the loss of a huge part of our crop, we started collecting VERY EARLY (mid-September) and ONLY BY HAND to be able to pick only the healthy fruits. Although that practice was very tiring, we think that the result will justify it, both chemically and organoleptically.

As every year, our crop collection was made possible with the help of our family members. The whole team is able to discipline to collection rules that guarantee very high quality of collected fruits!!! And as always, we have used our traditional collection pouches!!!
