Happy about the 2020 olive harvest
Olive blossoms 2020: farmers really deserve a good olive year
And this light but permanent rain irrigated the olive trees for several days, so that the olives could still be sucked in with water just before the harvest – ideal conditions.
And so this year’s olive harvest became a real joy for organic farmers. The nets, baskets, and boxes are quickly packed with taggiasca olives, a real specialty for which the region is famous. The initial forecasts for the total quantity are promising. The organic farm Sassolive estimates a yield, it will be well above 1,200 liters (normal yield: 700 to 1,000).
After pressing, the olive oil is still very spicy and has a greenish coloration. Therefore, it is rarely sold before January/February. Over the course of these weeks, it will become much milder. Just as the normal consumer is used to.
At Organic Farming Italy you have the opportunity to participate in the harvest and produce your own olive oil.
