Just Olives News 08.10.2022 | Autumn in the olive grove

>> Autumn greetings from Tuscany

Dear olive oil friend,

Slowly the leaves on the trees are turning into beautiful colours and it becomes much cooler. Autumn is here and with it, of course, the harvest season is approaching.

Our olive growers have been very engaged throughout the year and soon they will be able to bring in their harvest. The mill is already planned to start this Monday!

While the olive fly is currently still under control, unfortunately the summer was extremely dry again this year, with no rain for several months. Unlike last year, when there was generally little fruit on the trees, this year some trees are hanging very full, while other trees next to them bear almost no olives.

Did you know that an olive tree yields on average only about 6-7 kg of olives, from which, about only one liter of extra virgin olive oil can be pressed? Calculated by hectare, that's just 50-60 liters of extra virgin olive oil. This means that the production costs of the pure olive oil alone, without packaging, logistics, and distribution costs, are significantly higher than the price level you know from the supermarket. This is just one more reason why high-quality olive oil cannot be offered at discount prices.
