Below photos from our 2015 picking. Following last years bumper crop, this year’s crop was always going to be small.
Picking was restricted to three days over two weekends
First Weekend – Saturday
Our two most reliable pickers were here!
A well masked climber. It’s no good hiding in the tree, we know who you are!
The tractor and her friend.
Some areas of Barnea delivered lots of olives, despite the bad season.
Even late in the day they keep picking.
First Weekend – Sunday
Reaching new heights.
Hey, look over there (and smile for the camera).
Second Weekend – Saturday
Net movement. We always need a pool of keen helpers to keep the nets moving.
Our long lost picker returns, and bringing help too!
Olive Herding. Channeling the olives along the net to make a single pile for de-twigging and crating.
Last tree! Yep, we even picked the tree by the front gate.
