We are happy to say harvest and processing is completed although it ended up an extremely light year. The olives were much larger in size, just not a lot of them.
All in all, we ended up with a little over 200 lbs. which gave us roughly 3 gallons of estate oil. So we'll probably source our olives this year to increase our volume.
We've heard many growers are having a light year as well. A number of factors lead to this, namely Off year & varietal type, wind, water, and pruning. We had it all.
Looking forward, next year already looks promising to the extreme based on all the new growth! Until then, the trees can rest and regenerate.
