Harvesting Olives

in #nature4 years ago

The olive harvest ,for those who have a few trees is a family affair in much of Greece and a beloved experience for many people here. The ultimate quality of olive oil(extra virgin),-that green elixir, which produced after the pressing-comes from the Greek climate and soil.
Picking by hand with the help of laders, sticks, rakes and nets is the most common method in our places for harvesting these small, but precious green, purple and black fruits.
Before a week,in a sunny warm day, when I went in the countryside in our olive trees to give a hand to my mum and my uncle, actually I just brought two cups of coffee and some sweets(bougatsa) for a break, I decided to take a few photos and enjoy the day in nature.
In a few days ,we will see the results and hope of course to have an olive oil with delicate taste and unique aroma...
















Thank you!!!❣️❣️


It must be a special feeling to be involved in that work!

Indeed, these gatherings are filled with warmth, enthousiasm and joy and the taste of the fresh precious green oil, after the pressing, is indescribable. The people here are proud and very attached with their beloved olive trees, so every minute of the hard work worths!

Would love to be able to get olive oil made from those freshest of fresh olives. So interesting to see the hard work that they do.

I'm so glad you like it!! 😊
When you have the chance, you should try this unique experience and taste the fresh spicy aromatic olive oil!You gonna love it!

I love these pictures, I will start the olive harvest on the land in a few weeks, we do it by hand too, The trees on the land are huge and very old, so there is a lot of tree climbing and sore necks and hands xx

Thank you so much!!😊
Haha, I understand you very well, it's a very hard work, but the result is priceless!
I wish you all the best for your harvest!
