Olive Oil


The Small Print

Since we moved here in 2008 we’ve farmed the land organically but we aren’t certified so when we describe our oil as organic you’ll have to take our word for it.

We also describe the oil as extra virgin which means it should have a ph level of 0.8% or less, our mill doesn’t test the oil so we go by the local rule of thumb which is to press your oil within three days of harvesting to achieve extra virgin oil. Our aim is to pick and press within 24 hours.

Our oil is single estate and unblended, this means that all the olives are from the same grove and have been subject to the same climate, environment and growing conditions, and we don’t add oil from other sources.
