It is that time of year again – a celebration of all things olive! Warmer weather conditions this year lead to an earlier start for picking, so we will be well and truly prepared for Olive Festival in July.

We have great yields this year, with around 100kg being picked each day during the harvest period, although the height of the mature trees presented a real challenge for the team this year. Olives are now tucked up in brine for table fruit and pressed for oil. In both cases the results will be terrific as fruit quality was excellent.

All of this hard work will be celebrated at Abundance – our annual Olive Festival. Put a diary date in for the weekend of 6 & 7 July. We look forward to celebrating with you!
