Harvest 2016 and organic news

And the fly strikes again!

Yup - the sneaky little critters, after a very mild winter, are back. This time only 40% of production lost in Liguria so not as bad as 2014 but bad enough and has hit us hard again. The olive mills were deserted. It's a really sad sight to see.

We have a plan for next year though - we will not be beaten!

On the plus side - we have done our 3 years of compulsory waiting and are now officially certified organic. Our olives (when we get enough to sell) are officially organic!! Hoorah. We're very happy.
