  1. Looks like fun specially for the kids. Do you also have an option to help in olive oil making?

      I never liked olives until I moved here and got access to amazing olives whenever I want. Canned and jarred olives don’t hold a candle to the fresh stuff!

    I got to do this a couple of times in Tuscany, and it’s not easy work. I love that the kids got to experience it, too. I’m sure they won’t forget it.

  5. Yummmmm! And looks like you guys had a great time doing this together as a family. I hope you pickled those olives afterwards! Or put it on pizza :D :D

    What a great activity for children to be part of. One of my grocery store musings has always been how many olives it would take to make a gallon of olive oil..now I now roughly!

  7. It is interesting to read about the process of picking olives! And how cool it must have been to pick the olives of some of the world’s most famous and oldest olive trees! I dislike the taste of olives myself, but find olive groves to be so beautiful. What a wonderful way to spend your day!

    What a cool activity. I love olives and eat several different kinds all the time. I will have to check this out when I visit.

  9. That seems so much fun to do. I never thought about picking olives to be honest, but I will definitely put it on my list.
