I forgot to mention it is Olea Estates if you want to view their website – they show pictures of the harvesting and everything. They sell the tins for $58, we are just offering it at our “introductory” cost to help get it out there… and where else can you get amazing fresh Organic Olive Oil for $36/ tin?)
They are going through the organic certification process now, but Steve says :
“Basically, the farm has been farmed organically for a long, time (and certification by some organization is pending, but take my word for it, my uncle uses “no chemicals”. That is his mantra.) … The one pest that in years past was addressed collectively with chemical pesticides as it could easily wipe out a farmer’s crop, is the olive fly. My uncle’s approach, soon copied by neighbors as it was found to be superior to the little commercial traps that were sold, was to hang a stick of wood from a branch on each tree and dip it in a sugar water solution. So, there you go. Sugar.”
COOL. And it’s delicious.
