2017 Harvest

Photo: As always, our next door neighbour’s dog, Argo, supervised the harvest.

The 2017 harvest was completed in one day, Monday 16th October. Jan was in London at the time so it fell to Colin to oversee the harvesting of the olives and get them to the press and back home with the oil.

Harvested in the morning, transported in the afternoon and pressed in the evening….
