One of our basket program members got in touch saying she had extra virgin olive oil available from her family orchards in Greece and we said heck yes!
A few words from Mimi, “Our objective is to share access to the limited quantity of extra virgin olive oil produced from our orchards in Greece. Initially this was limited to family and has been extended to friends and colleagues through word of mouth.
Olive oil is an organic product, subject to variation in taste from year to year, not unlike wine, with climate and other factors influencing the final product. Our groves are mostly older trees and, following local traditions, we do little to the trees during the year beyond the necessary pruning. The harvest is monitored by family members and we have used pickers who adhere to certified processes.
Our extra virgin olive oil comes from a small town in the province of Ilia in the western Peloponnese. It is located a few miles from Ancient Olympia. Like most groves in this area, ours is small, very old and family owned.”
This special treat is only available for a limited time, add one to your basket so you don’t miss out!
