Tales of Tasmanian Adventures in Olive Oil

Our first days of olive harvesting



We started our first olive harvest down here in Tasmania on Sunday. We were blessed with good weather and the help and company of friends, family, and neighbours. The day ended with our olives going through our press and yielding extra virgin olive oil! It was a steep learning curve but we went to bed tired and happy.

I aim to get more photos and a longer post on her soon, but am also posting on twitter and Facebook, so please have a look there if you’re into those social media! (Links on the right of this site.) I’m struggling with mobile blogging a bit… FFx

I'm a British doctor who married an Aussie, moved to Tasmania, and bought an olive grove. Now making extra virgin olive oil and olive leaf tea. I'd love you to join my adventures in the beautiful setting of Southern Tasmania.
