Had a great day today.
Over the last few days I've been harvesting the olive grove along with my old Aussie fishing buddy.
Picked just under a ton so happy with that but there is always uncertainty about how oil and what quality the fruit will yield.
Had a very pleasant surprise after pressing today, a 16% yield with an awesome quality flavour - a pungent and peppery flavour with a fruit note I can't identify yet.
My commercial buyer is wanting most of the produce as well :)
Makes the back breaking work worth it:)
The weather has been fantastic as well - not bad for winter!!
Another 2 picks at least yet I reckon but now at least I know it is worth it,because some years it just isn't.
