The Harvest of the Olives

Finally in the mid of november the olives look muy bien to harvest. We start with fog, but during the day the sun comes out. Asia is also very interested in our work and keeps us company.

The four terraces which are free of the Galician jungle will be it for the this year. A test for a lot of things and the taste of the extra virgin organic olive oil.

We harvest traditionally with hands. Thanks to Elena y Alberto we finish to pick the olives. The same day I drive to the mill in Quiroga where it is possible to press the olives individually even with a smaller quantity.

But the mill is another story.

Everything goes fine and now we are waiting for the olive oil to be ready and are very excited about the taste of the ecological extra virgin oil from Galicia.

We will have a Coupage since we have the varieties arbequina, hojiblanca and picual.
