Olive picking

Olive groves | Tasting | Purchasing | Running the estate > Olive Picking | Picking Terms

Help us pick the olives – it is an active, exciting time, the culmination of a year’s work.  Picking starts around 20th October and finishes at the beginning of December (when the mills close).  Teams of pickers from Belgium, England, Ireland, Scotland, France and Germany (some of whom have been coming here for 7 years!) stay with us for a week and combine an active, open-air working holiday with the opportunity to meet old friends, make new ones and also see something of the region.  It’s a mixture of work and play.
