The olives harvest starts

Hello everyone:

The harvest has started. This first image is from the still empty trailer.

After a long day, we leave the most representative images from the harvest.

In this case, we use a vibrating machine connected to the tractor that grab a branch and facilitates the olive olive falling and damages less the new branches (which will bear fruit next year) comparing to the traditional “vareo” (use of a long stick to harvest olives):

The olive is discharged into a trailer that will take the olives to the mill to make our olive oil:

To conclude we leave you with one of the huge and ancient olive trees in the area:

 

With this olive tree we finished the harvest day

We finished the harvest day with this olive tree. A hundred-year-old tree that gives us this good olive oil!
