These are the photos from our 2013 picking. As usual this was not a usual year. After a long dry summer the crop ripened on time, but there just wasn’t that much. As a result picking was restricted to two weekends
These people look familiar – from the back!
Branch Shaker at work. Flying olives…
A river of olives.
The Featherston Press.
Second Weekend – Two Weeks Later
More familiar backs. It’s hard to photo faces when people are picking.
Lots of leaf came down while picking the sparse Frantoio.
This year we trialed a new prototype leaf blower. Sorry this is the only photo we took of it!
36kg of removed leaves from an estimated 220kg of olives. While the olives presses have a built in leaf remover, we pay for the delivered weight. We don’t want to pay for leaves.
Dinner on weekend two.
