The olives are handpicked from the trees and then taken to the mill located within the estate itself. Here they are first separated from their leaves, which are recycled through compost and fed back to the land. Next, the olives are washed with spring water and then pressed to separate the oil from the olives. No heat or chemicals are used during the extraction process; the oil is pure, cold-pressed and unrefined. All of this takes place within 24 hours of harvesting the olives to retain the optimum amount of nutrients.
