Tales of Tasmanian Adventures in Olive Oil

A little pruning…


farmerfi prunings olive grove

We’ve made a start on pruning our olive trees for the first time. 150 down, 850 to go… Two and a half days pruning, followed by two days with a chipping machine! I ache all over… I did about 50 million squats picking up the branches to put in the chipper. The weather had been kind, but at the moment it’s windy and raining, so my plan to take soil samples is postponed. The weather changes very quickly here though, so I’m hoping in an hour it will be sunny and calm!! 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.
